By pasting stickers and flags on my car, I can aware others. And you will see plethora of cars and two-wheelers with the messages written for the farmers,” he added.

At some areas like Urban Estate, ‘no farmer, no food’ stickers can also been seen pasted on fruit vends. People have also installed flags outside their homes to express solidarity.

Shivani Sharma, a house maker, said that all day, news channels are on in her house. “There is no other channel we watch now, only news and just for the farmers. Even my children now know very well that farmers are fighting for their rights. We have also pasted stickers on our cars because we are with them in this fight,” she said.
