New Delhi [India], Dec 19 (ANI): Faced with a lack of facilities, farmers protesting new farming laws on the Ghazipur border in Delhi have started using solar panels to charge their phones, tractor batteries and other vital work.
After using washing machines and chappati machines on the Singhu border, farmers on the Ghazipur border are now making arrangements for themselves.
“We brought solar panels to charge the batteries of our phones and tractors. There is work going on in our country in our villages, so we have to call our family regularly,” said Amrit Singh, an excited farmer.
“We don’t know how long we’re going to have to sit here, the government isn’t listening to us so we have to make arrangements for ourselves until we stay here,” he added.
Meanwhile, a group of volunteers started a newsletter called “Trolley Times” on Friday on the borders of Singhu and Tikri in the state capital.
The Trolley Times bi-weekly newsletter is designed to provide information to farmers, the latest developments in government talks and other such reports are readily available to the excited farmers.
Protesting farmers on the Singhu border are also taking precautions to install waterproof tents to protect them from the cold weather conditions.
Since November 26, numerous farmers on various borders of the state capital have been protesting against the three newly enacted agricultural laws – the Farmers Trade and Industry (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmer’s Price Agreement (Authorization and Protection) Assurance and Farm Services Act , 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
