Chandigarh, November 15

After the first round of talks with the Centre remained "inconclusive", farmers' unions in Punjab are in no mood to relent and are continuing with their protests

A majority of unions had given a call for celebrating Diwali as "Roshniyan layi sangharsh". As a result, marches were held across the rural landscape of the state, with farmers taking out a procession last night.

In the dharnas being held elsewhere, farmers lit torches and pledged to continue the struggle till the three farm laws enacted by the Centre were withdrawn. 'Jalebi langars' were held and the savoury sweet was also distributed at various places. The unions are gearing up for their protest in Delhi on November 26-27 and already they are asking their members to gear up to move to Delhi.
