Farmers' protest: Ex-sarpanch starts free taxi service to Delhi

Bathinda, February 8

A former sarpanch of Mehma Sarkari village in Bathinda district has announced bearing commuting charges for those interested to visit protest site at Delhi borders.

Barjinder Singh Brar has hired a taxi (SUV) for the job that leaves for Delhi borders on a weekly basis. The first group of farmers left for the Tikri border on Monday. On an average, taxi service providers charge around Rs 8,000 for one round to Delhi. Many farmers travel by train, bus or tractors on a daily basis to the protest venues at the Delhi borders.

Brar said, “All farmers do not have adequate resources to travel to and from Delhi. The service will facilitate their travel in a hassle-free manner.” — TNS
