The residents of the Naruana village have prepared 10 quintals of khoya pinni for the farmers protesting against agriculture laws in Delhi.

Farmer leader Harpreet Singh said that farmers from all over Punjab were protesting in Delhi against the agriculture laws enacted by Narendra Modi-led Centre and all possible help was being provided to them by Punjabis from all over the world.

The womenfolk here are making sure their men and children, who are away from home, get their daily quota of pinni which would keep them warm as they spend day and night out in the open.

A piece of pinni with hot milk is believed to keep a person healthy and warm in the dropping temperatures. “A large number of older people are part of the protest and these pinnis were made specifically keeping their health in mind,” said Harpreet.

“It’s our small contribution to the protesting farmers. We will continue to help them till this issue reaches its logical end,” he said.

Several villages across Punjab are cooking and sending wholesome food every day to the protesting farmers in the national capital.

Earlier, Amrik Singh Sandhu from Talwandi Madho in Jalandhar had delivered 25 quintals of pinni, made with 1,200kg wheat, 400kg clarified butter, 200kg condensed milk, 100kg jaggery, 50kg almonds and 15 kg flax seeds, at Delhi’s Singhu border.

The district unit of Bhartiya Kisan Union, Ugrahan, from Barnala had sent five quintals of pinnis to Delhi on December 5.

Several other villages from Sangrur and Ropar districts dispatched tonnes of jaggery to the protesting sites.
