Chandigarh, December 11
Khalsa Aid India has set up a makeshift space as a massage centre for farmers protesting at the Delhi borders against the Centre’s farm laws.
In a Facebook post shared by the organisation, they wrote: “This is for our farmer brothers and sisters who were experiencing pain.”
“We are overwhelmed by the love and blessings that our farmers bestow on us. Thank you all for your support!” it added.
The three laws — Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 — took effect from September 27 after President Ram Nath Kovind’s assent.
The agitation is now spilling beyond Delhi, which continues to be the main point of farmers’ protest. The government may be working on support from some unions on its middle path proposal but the majority of farmers are not in the mood to listen, calling its proposals an “insult”.
