Watch: Farmers vacate Ghazipur, Singhu, Tikri borders as year-long protest ends

New Delhi:

Days after announcing the suspension of their year-long protest, farmers on Saturday began vacating the protest sites across Delhi-NCR to return to their respective homes.

At Ghazipur border, the farmers took down their tents as they started returning back their homes.

“A large group of farmers shall vacate the area at 8 AM tomorrow. In today’s meeting, we will talk, pray, and meet the people who helped us. People have started vacating already, it will take 4-5 days. I will leave on December 15,” said BKU leader Rakesh Tikait told ANI.

A similar view was seen at the Singhu border also where farmers were seen leaving the protest site after the suspension of the protest against the three farm laws and other related issues.

Protesting farmers at Tikri border also dismantled their settlements and started vacating the area.

Earlier, the farmers decided to suspend their agitation, but warned that the agitation can resume if the government does not fulfill its promises by January 15, 2022.

“We have decided to suspend our agitation. We will hold a review meeting on January 15. If the Government of India doesn’t fulfill its promises, we could resume our agitation,” farmer leader Gurnam Singh Charuni said after a meeting of Samyukta Kisan Morcha in the national capital. 

This came after, agitating farmers received a letter from the Government of India that said the mandate of the committee would be to decide on ways of providing MSP to the farmers. 

The letter read that the governments of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Haryana have already said to “immediately” take back all the cases against the farmers during the movement.
