Some two lakh farmers from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Kerala and Punjab are reaching Delhi as part of their two-day ‘Delhi Chalo’ protest march on Thursday and Friday.
Clarion India reported that the person who picked up the phone promptly asked for the address where food needed to be delivered. Asked if the food was being prepared at a centralised place, he said kitchens had been set up at several places. “You give the address, food will be sent from the nearest point of distribution.”
The organisers plan to continue this free delivery of food as long as the situation demands, he said.
He also said that although the food was being distributed through mosques in various localities, the contribution for this was coming from all sides. “It’s an all-religion initiative,” he added.
