According to Lakhwinder Singh of Azad Kisan Committee, Dwaba, the crowd of protesters started growing after the conclusion of an annual religious gathering on Finghpur Sahib in Punjab on 26 December on the Singhu boarder. He said, “All those people who were in Fatehpur Sahib are now joining the protests and last week we felt that the crowd in front of the stage has increased considerably.” He said, “We have had many people who said that they could not see or hear the speakers properly away from the stage, so we decided to put the screen on.”
Lakhwinder is also part of the United Kisan Morcha management team. “We want to ensure that all our farmer brothers and sisters are well aware of our movement or about the strategies shared by our leaders on the platform,” he said. ‘It is natural that not everyone can stay in front of the stage all the time. So microphones help all farmers to stay connected. “
Farmer leaders and key members of the management team have placed walkie-talkies that keep them in the “2-3 km range”. “Our phones practically don’t work here and calls drop frequently, so walkie talkies help us stay in touch,” said Jaskaran Singh, who sees stage and lighting arrangements at the protest venue.
