Mansa, December 11

Women advocates from Mansa have been standing strong with farmers in their agitation at the Tikri border . Apart from taking part in the protest, they can be seen preparing food at the site.

Senior Bar member advocate Balveer Kaur Sidhu, Rajinder Kaur and Harsimran Kaur have been putting up at the protest venue for the past few days. Coming from families with well-to-do backgrounds, these women have been sleeping on floor with other women protesters.

Balveer Kaur (40) has been participating in the stir along with her husband and children. She is also a leader and active member of BKU (Dakonda). While she can be spotted participating in and addressing massive gathering till afternoon hours, later she, along with her colleagues, tends to chores and prepares food in the langar for farmers.

Balveer said: "We will stay put until the Centre repeals the new laws... burdened with debt, suicides, low income and ever-increasing input costs, the farming community in the state is already grappling with crises. But with these new laws, the agriculture sector would hit its lowest ebb and we cannot let that happen in front of us," she says. — TNS
