Local women added colour to the victory procession of farmers from Tikri to Rohtak city on Saturday. Besides showering farmers with flowers, they danced to beats of “dhol” to express happiness.
Langar was also served at various locations. A group of Haryanvi women on a tractor-trolley during the procession attracted the public attention by performing dance and singing victory songs.
Jagmati Sangwan, a woman activist, said a considerable number of women from nearby areas had supported the protest from the beginning. “They not only joined the dharna at Tikri and Rohad toll plazas, but also provided food to the protesters. So, today is a big day for all those women who stood by the farmers throughout the struggle,” she added.
SKM leaders Hannan Mollah, Jagjit Singh Dallewal, Inderjit Singh, Krishan Prasad and Sukhdev Singh Jammu honoured farmers by presenting them with a siropa at Kisan Chowk near the Tikri border.
Later, another big reception was held at the Rohad toll plaza where Gurjeet Kaur, niece of Bhagat Singh, was welcomed. Langars and welcome camps with bands and music were organised at Kheri Sadh village also.
