The call for a state-level bandh given by 31 various farm organisations seems have to further strengthened the bond of residents. Apart from special committees of various farm organisations, various gurdwaras, individuals and non-farming groups played a big role in ensuring food and tea to protesters all through the day.

"The Milkman Union of Bhawanigarh had taken the responsibility to serve tea to thousands of protesters. It kept its word as the supply of tea continued till the end of protest in Bhawanigarh," said Gurmeet Singh, state vice-president of the BKU (Dakaunda).

At many places, the protesters made their own arrangements to cook food and prepare tea while at other places, gurdwara committees and area residents took up the responsibility.

"We have been supplying food to protesters since the start of the protest. Today, our vehicles supplied food to protesters at Longowal, Sangrur and Chhajli. It's our duty to stand with the farmers. Apart from food, we have also provided four buses to protesters to reach at the agitation sites," said Jaswant Singh Khaira, secretary of the Akal Council of Mastuana Sahib, which supervises gurdwara and educational institutes.

Narinderpal Singh, a member of the management committee of Gurdwara Sahib Haa Da Naara, Malerkotla, said they had been helping farmers by supplying langar.
