farmers at Delhi borders send firewoods to Ghazipur


mid occasional rains and cold winters in Delhi, farmers from nearby areas have assisted those protesting against the central farm rules on the Ghazipur border, linking Delhi with Ghaziabad. Wooden trucks were sent by farmers from Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Gautam Budh Nagar, Bagpat and other areas west of Uttar Pradesh to protesters on the Ghazipur border. “We have a lot of wood at home and the brothers are shaking because of the rain and cold in Delhi. So we decided to keep the wood for fuel. So far we have delivered more than a four-wheel-drive truck full of firewood, ”said Ranveer Tewatia, a Meerut farmer.

Delhi rains have disrupted temporary camps set up by farmers in Delhi with rainwater for fuel, which is used for cooking in protest areas. "We have set up a campfire to endure the cold night. Since the unexpected rains, we have lost about half of our firewood but farmers from nearby areas have brought more firewood and now we are spending our nights and camping around the campfire," said Satender Tomar, a protester in Ghazipur.

Thousands of farmers are currently living on the Delhi and Haryana and Uttar Pradesh borders in protest of the Farmers 'Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers' Promotion and Protection Agreement and the Farm Services Act, 2020 and -Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

For more than 40 days, farmers have blocked highways in Ghazipur, Singhu, Tikri and Chilla on the Delhi border.
