Retgarh village saw an unusual departure of a marriage party in the morning when the groom, along with his friends and relatives holding flags of the BKU (Ugrahan), raised slogans against the Central Government over the farm laws.

A majority of farmers have decided to celebrate their weddings in this manner across Punjab until the laws are withdrawn. "We have been protesting against the laws for more than a month. All farmers have decided to celebrate their marriages by raising slogans against the government. Apart from marriages, other functions will also be turned into protests against the Centre," said Harnek Singh, father of the groom and a BKU (Ugrahan) leader.

Groom Jashanjeet Singh said the laws would ruin farming in Punjab and all farmers along with their families should raise their voice. "Like me, I request families of farmers across Punjab to turn their occasions of celebration into protests," he said.
