New Delhi: Thousands of protesting farmers from Haryana and Punjab remained camped at the Singhu and Tikri borders (on the Haryana side of Delhi) as the stalemate between the central government and farmer leaders on the new farm laws continued Monday.
Among them are many women farmers who, like their male counterparts, have been raising their voices since October, when protests first began across Punjab and Haryana.

Women of all age groups reached the Delhi border, some via tractors and others on foot, and remained defiant in their resolve to make the government hear their pleas.
“Assi eithon nahi hilange. Modi ko humari baat sunni padegi (We won’t budge. Modi has to hear us out),” said one of the women farmers.
