Farmers deliver turbines, electricians to Singhu stir | Ludhiana Information
PATIALA: Electricity taken away, the generators brought with them are now used by farmers in their protest camps outside Delhi. Some of these sets are owned, others are rented out.
The farmers have to charge their cell phones and run the roti makers in the langar kitchens. BKU (Ekta-Ugrahan) general secretary Sukhdev Singh Kokari Kalan said: “The farmers are lucky that they had their own generators and solar batteries to run electrical appliances. But we need more generators after the government shuts down our street lights, water supplies and internet to quell the unrest. We had to call village electricians from Punjab. ”
Until a few days ago, farmers were using the main power line for the street lights when the government cut power. Balwant Singh from Mansa Village Rarh said, “There was a power failure. But I had brought a couple of generators. More sets have reached us at the Tikri border from all over Punjab. The cost of diesel comes from the villagers’ pockets. ”
Gurvinder Singh, Senior Vice President of the Patiala Block of the BKU, said: “The farmers from Patiala’s village of Daun Kalan brought their generators with them on Tuesday, and while we are fine now, the Langar site needs electricity to run the roti maker to operate.”
