New Delhi, Dec 27 (TIWN) Despite the chilling cold, a large number of farmers have been stoutly protesting for the last one month at the borders of New Delhi amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But it raises the question that from where is the protest by the farmers, who have left farming work and are marching on the streets, gathering strength from. Various speculative claims have been made over this question. However, many say it is the passion and brotherhood of Punjabi farmers that gives strength to this mass movement.  The farmers, who are agitating against the three farm laws implemented by the central government, have been camping in the national capital since November 26 at the Singhu, Tikri and the Ghazipur borders.  Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader, Pal Majra, was asked about where he was getting money to run the farmer protests. He said that everyone in Punjab is contributing to the farm protests. When someone from the villages of Punjab leaves for the Delhi farmer protests, the people in the villages also send financial aid according to their capacity, Majra said.
