After foiling attempts of miscreants to create unrest at the protesting sites on the national capital borders, Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan), the largest outfit of farmers, has formed special committees to conduct round-the-clock patrolling and divided all areas into small sections for better management.

On a strict vigil, members of the committees check each trailer and let people enter in their respective demarcated areas only after a thorough verification.

“Every group has four to five members and they carry the flags of our organisations. We are doing it not to cause any panic, but to keep miscreants away. Recently after some miscreants entered in our area under the guise of our members, we caught them and handed over them to the police,” says Satwinder Singh, a young member of the BKU (Ugrahan).

For night, there are two committees for each section and the shift of first committee ends around 1 am. Apart from patrolling committees, the BKU has assigned the task of keeping their record to senior members of organisations. The senior members have details of each member of all committees. The elders ensure whether the committees are undertaking their duty properly or not.

Apart from staying in touch with their elders, the members of each committee have details of majority of members of other committees. The WhatsApp has been helping all to stay in touch and share real-time information with each other. “Our langar committee members keep serving tea to patrolling members as remaining awake at nights is a challenge,” said Jagtar Kalajhar, a BKU (Ugrahan) leader of Sangrur district.
