As the farmer's protest has entered its 25th day and farmers continue to stick to their demands, doctors and nurses from Punjab on Sunday reached Singhu border to extend their support to the farmers. The medical staff from Punjab said that they are available to provide any assistance and aid to the farmers if anyone falls sick in the cold climate. 

Harshdeep Kaur, a nurse from a hospital in Ludhiana said, "We are here to support the farmers’ protest. We also want to serve them if they fall ill. Medical treatment is the basic requirement for everyone because of the cold weather. We would like to help the farmers if they require it.”

Sukhman Kaur, another doctor present at the border shared a similar mindset. She said, "We are descendent of Mata Gujri who was a courageous woman from Punjab. We came here to support the protesting farmers. Everybody in Punjab is only demanding the revocation of the (farm) laws.”


Meantime, the protesting site has become a site that would inspire generations to come. A group of tattoo artists from Punjab has installed a stall at the protest site in solidarity with the farmers. 

Maps of Punjab, the head of a lion, pictures of farmers harvesting crops, farm equipment, tractors are among the tattoo patterns in demand. There are tattoos with slogans and motivational quotes too, such as ''kar har maidan Fateh'' (win every battle), and ''nishchay kar apni jeet karo'' (emerge victorious with firm resolve).

Youths have also organised blood donation camps while parents have brought their children on the site to teach them about the importance of farmers and why they are protesting.

Farmers have been protesting at the borders of Delhi since November 26 against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
