Even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured farmers that his government was committed to their welfare and that the legislation were aimed at giving them alternate markets to boost income, the farmers have refused to budge. Farmers have vowed to expand their protests over the new farm laws. But even as the protest intensifies, so have the facilities at the protest sites. Let's take a look


Makeshift gym at Singhu protest site

Even as the protest intensifies, a 'gym ka langar' has sprung up at the Singhu border.

This makeshift gym caters to sportspersons who have joined the farmers in solidarity and those who wish to work out. 

This open gym is equipped with dumbbells, weight plates, a bench, a rod and two holders. According to reports, some of the gym equipement was made from scratch in Delhi

Besides a gym, the protest site now also has foot massage centres.

International non-profit organisation Khalsa Aid has set up a foot massage centre in makeshift spaces for the protesting farmers. Altogether, some 25 machines have been installed so far, and more are on their way.

Amarpreet, managing director of Khalsa Aid India, told news agency ANI: "We are at Singhu border and we have taken initiative and set up a facility of foot massage for old farmers as they are protesting for a very long time and they must be tired."
