Farmers from across the state, who are protesting at the Tikri-Bahadurgarh border along with their counterparts from Punjab, are making optimum use of technology to make the long haul at the protest site bearable.

They are using technology to the fullest by using two roti-making machines, which churn out chapatis and knead the dough. They also have washing machines and WiFi supported LED televisions to keep them updated about the latest news. For continuous power supply they have brought generator sets and solar panels at the site.

"We brought the roti-making machine on rent here from Delhi around 10 days ago to serve langar to scores of farmers. With this, we are able to feed 10 to 15 thousand farmers daily without any trouble," said Haryana Kisan Manch state president Prahlad Singh Bharukhera.

Another group of farmers from Fatehabad have put up an LED screens and a washing machine under the Metro overbridge here.

"Tractor-trailers and tents are our makeshift abode these days as we don't know how long the protest will go. These facilities have made it easier for the farmers to stay updated about the latest goings-on and also have eased them in performing their daily chores," said Navdeep Singh Nathwal, a farmer.
