Sangrur, December 11

It is for the first time that a large number of tractors are lined up within a stretch of a few kilometres on the Delhi border. Each tractor-trailer doubles up as room with facilities like mobile charging points, electricity bulbs, mattresses and inverters.

Six to seven persons can easily sleep in each trailer while for every eight to 12 trailers and its occupants, there is a special trailer loaded with vegetables like onion, potato and ration like sugar, flour and ghee. After modifying the trailers with iron grills and special nets and tarpaulins, hay is laid on its floor to provide heat while above it, special mattresses are placed.

Besides, each trailer has quilts and blankets. "During nights, our trailers look like rooms as we have every facility here. We have so many inverters that we can light up our areas for around 55 hours continuously. We have made separate arrangements for women also," said Harjeet Singh, a Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan) leader from Sangrur.

From his village, 12 trailers have gone to the Delhi border, of which four are for women, one for ration, while the remaining are for male members of organisations.
