Farmers have been protesting against the government's three bills on various borders of Delhi since November 26, 2020. And to mark the first anniversary of the farmers' movement against three Central farm laws Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM)has organized protests in different states like Delhi, Karnataka. SKM claimed that thousands of farmers are going to reach protests sites. In Karnataka, the protest will be staged on different highways and also on 25 locations in all districts of Karnataka.

The farmers have been camping at three border points of Delhi -- Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur -- for the last one year. The movement against three new farm laws of the Centre began with a "Dilli Chalo" programme on November 26-27 last year. Meanwhile, the Centre has recently announced its decision to repeal the three farm laws.
