Experience of elders and enthusiasm among youths is keeping the spirit of protesters high at the Singhu border for the past 16 days.

Elderly farmers keep guiding the youths to remain vigilant and perform all sorts of duties, so that the protest continues to remain peaceful. Subsequently, the youths are performing well on every front — be it langar sewa, managing the traffic flow of the farmers’ vehicles or maintaining hygiene and distributing fruits.

Farmers are reaching the site from Haryana and Punjab with milk, fruits, vegetables, medicines and food items in vehicles bearing flags of farmers’ organisations and theTricolour. There is no dearthof financial and social support from Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and UP. Besides, Punjabi singers as well as spiritual gurus are keeping the protesters in high spirits.

Gurbaz Singh (65) from Moga said that earlier, the protest was limited to Punjab, but now it had become a mass movement across the country. “It is a disciplined dharna. The youths are keeping a vigil to avoid any anti-social element from hampering our movement,” he added.

Gurnam Singh, another youth managing traffic, said, “We’ve divided the duties and accordingly, keep guarding the protest site.”
