NEW DELHI — Distribution of food to agitating farmers through mosques in Delhi continued for the second day on Friday. At least 25 mosques are also geared up to host the farmers for the night stay, according to Nadeem Khan of the United Against Hate (UAH) which has made the arrangements.

He said his organisation was doing everything possible to reach out to the farmers who have come to the national capital with their demand to repeal the three recent anti-farmer Bills.

He told Clarion India that kitchens are working round the clock at four locations: Hauz Khas, Okhla, Old Rohtak Road and Old Delhi. “We are feeding people at these locations. We are also delivering food packets to places from wherever requests are coming. Besides, our vans with food packets are going to places where farmers are found in big numbers,” he said.

The farmers, mobilised by some 500 organisations from states like Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan had planned the November 26-27 ‘Delhi chalo’ march demanding repeal of the recently-enacted farm laws. Those coming by the land route were stopped on Delhi borders on Thursday.

But in the face of stiff resistance by the ryots, the government gave in on Friday. They were allowed to enter the national capital in the afternoon and escorted to Nirankari ground in Burari for carrying on their protests. But, according to reports, farmers are spotted everywhere in the capital. “We are receiving calls from different places. Our aim is to ensure that no one goes hungry,” he said.

According to Nadeem Khan, UAH has also made provisions for blankets and night stay for the farmers. He said up to 25 mosques throughout Delhi have been lined up where farmers can spend the night. “Our volunteers are ready with vehicles to pick up farmers from wherever they are stuck and take them to the nearest mosque for night stay,” he added.

  1. Your job is to report and not pass judgement on the matter if the bills are “anti-farmer” or “pro-farmer” .

    You should not denote the bills as being “anti-farmer”, denote or refer to them by either their full names and titles or refer to them as just “farmer bills”.

    Hate to see how media blindly take stances and move the uneducated readers to their own selfish opinions.

  2. Openly they’re saying just to make the Modi govt.yeild to their way, but not for the farmers well being. While the government is making laws for the Nation’s development, these people don’t want it. They want their mean selfish motto to win. People of India watching all these things, and they will answer at right time.

  3. Hopeless politicians for their vested interest, creating this havoc among farmers…Muslim organisations supported by foreign fund wants to encourage such protests against the Govt, just to defame..And also to create nuisance in the Nation..But, certainly the Central Govt will take appropriate action against this..

  4. Serving food to farmers is not with love & affection on farmers.
    It is not to loose stamina to disturb govt to achieve their religious deeds finally with 3rd parties strikes.
    Farmers shd not accept it.
