Raghuvir Singh, a 68-year-old specially abled farmer, has been unable to walk without wheelchair for past three years after he met with an accident. However, from the start of the agitation against the farm laws, all his family members have been a part of the protests. Presently, his wife, son and daughter-in-law have been protesting at the Delhi border while his neighbours are taking care of him as well his buffalo.

"When the Centre is being insensitive to our rights, how can I allow my family to sit at home? My wife Gurcharn Kaur, son Gurdhian Singh and daughter-in-law will continue protesting at the Delhi border till our victory," said Raghuvir. Before the accident, he was an active member of the BKU (Ugrahan), but after suffering serious injuries on both legs, he has not been able to attend any protest.

"Our neighbours and the entire state is there to take care of my husband. His problems are not as big as the problems faced by farmers due to the farm laws. We will return after getting these laws scrapped," said Gurcharn Kaur from the Delhi border. BKU (Ugrahan, Bhawanigarh) president Harjinder Singh said they had been taking care of Raghuvir. "We are supplying him essential items on time," he said.
