We are having a peaceful demonstration. Harjinder, who came here in the movement, said that we have brought ration, wood and other items together. We are not going to return from here without the withdrawal of the bill. A camp has been made here to stop us.

Farmers standing in Burari field have brought ration, fuel and essential goods for themselves. Also, the local people of Delhi are also bringing food and essential items for them. Manmeet Singh, who arrived with food, said that we are not from any political party, but we have come here for the farmers. The farmer feeds the country and is present here in the cold. So we have brought food for 600 people in our van. I have told the farmers that I would be happy if I could help them in any other way.
