Gurdaspur, December 5

Several farm unions sent an SOS to Dubai-based construction magnate Surinder Pal Singh Oberoi seeking help following which a team of 18 doctors, five ambulances, including one equipped with a ventilator and 20 tonnes of dry ration, were rushed today to the Haryana-Delhi border.

During Covid, the businessman had distributed thousands of PPE kits, masks and sanitisers and a dozen ventilators across Punjab.

Oberoi said for the past week, he was continuously flooded with requests to extend a helping hand to the protesting farmers. The social organisation which he heads, called the Sarbat Da Bhala Charitable Trust, was tasked to ensure the relief material reached Delhi immediately. Five tonnes of horse feed was also dispatched for the army of 1,000 Nihangs who have reached the national capital. Oberoi said 3,000 blankets and 12,000 pairs of sleepers were purchased from a Panipat-based wholesaler and sent to the Singhu and Tikri borders. — TNS
