“I dedicated my foot march to farmers who won after a yearlong fight. Unity of Haryana and Punjab worked well and the Modi government, which used to say there are only a handful farmers protesting at borders, had to give in. Everyone came to know that farmers are patriotic and dedicated to the nation,” he added.
Balvinder said he was encouraged en route by Haryana farmers, who gave him fruits. The love given by Haryana farmers will not be forgotten, said Balvinder.
