Sonepat/Jhajjar, February 4

Farmers continued their protest at the Singhu border despite the chill and showers. Hundreds of farmers from adjoining villages arrived to express solidarity with the protesters.

The showers and icy wind on Thursday added to the difficulties of farmers, but their spirits remained high. The farmers, especially the elderly, spent time in their trolleys and waterproof tents. Many gathered near a bonfire after rain stopped.

Gurmukh Singh, an elderly farmer from Batala, said they were afraid of neither the biting cold nor rain. They had worked in their fields amid cold wave and heavy rain their entire life, he added.

At Tikri, intermittent rain on Thursday spelt trouble for farmers. Water entered their tents and their belongings were soaked. The muddy road from Bahadurgarh to Tikri was a cause of inconvenience, especially to the pedestrians. Farmers were seen drying their mats, clothes and other belongings after rain stopped.
