After getting information that miscreants tried to puncture tyres of farmers’ tractors and create other faults in them, mechanics have started leaving for the national capital to keep the vehicles up and running. Punjab-based MBBS doctors have also started providing free medical aid to farmers at the Kundli border.

“I and three other mechanics have left for Delhi to repair tractors. Along with our phone numbers, we have flashed a message on social media that if any farmer faces any problem with his tractor, car or tempo, we would repair that for free,” Gurjant Singh, a mechanic, told The Tribune over the phone.

Farmer leaders also confirmed that they have got calls from some mechanics to provide free services. “Though there are already some mechanics with us, more are reaching here. We have got information that announcements have also been made through the public address system in various villages to send mechanics here. It has become the fight of all,” said Rajpal Singh,a BKU (Ugrahan) leader.

Two doctors from Lehra and Barnala have started a medical camp for farmers at the Kundli border. “We have distributed medicines worth Rs 15,000 for free. Many farmers are complaining of irritation in their eyes caused by the tear-gas shells, while others have minor injuries,” said Dr Lavpreet, who along with Dr Parmeshwar, has been providing medical aid to farmers.
