About The Gallery

The ongoing farmers’ agitation against Centre’s new farm reform laws entered the sixth day on December 1. Farmers observed the 551st birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev also known as Gurpurab, at the border camps. Groups protesting at the Singhu and Tikri border were seen offering prayers and distributing prasad among each other and the security personnel deployed there to stop their movement. Visuals were also seen from medical camps set up at the Singhu border to assist injured farmers from the clash on November 27. Amid decisions by farm leaders to block three more borders in the national capital in order to be heard, the Centre has called their leaders for a fresh round of talks on November 1.
