Farmers Protest: Farmers celebrated December 11 as Vijay Diwas, returning home with victory

News Desk: More than a year after they arrived in large convoys of tractors, several protesting farmers on December 11 morning began returning to their home States, taking with them a victory to cherish and memories of a successful siege at Delhi’s borders.

The farmers lifted blockades on highways at Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders and took out a ‘Victory March’ to celebrate the repeal of three contentious farm laws and the Centre’s written assurance to fulfil their other demands, including constituting a committee for legal guarantee on minimum support price (MSP) for crops.

Emotions ran high as the farmers set off for their homes in different States, including Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh, after a successful movement.

Tractors bedecked with colourful lights rolled out of the protest sites blaring songs of victory while the elderly flaunted their colourful turbans and danced with youngsters.

The farmers are celebrating December 11 as ‘Vijay Diwas’.

Farmer leaders said that they will again meet on January 15 to see if the government has fulfilled their demands.
