Delhi border camps where farmers are staying and protesting against the three Agriculture laws have been seeing commercial ventures, tents and shops. There are hundreds of tents, ‘tiny’ houses made out shipping containers, kitchens built right on the highways and walls to protect them from adverse weather.
They even have plans to build up more things in coming days. People can also be seen enjoying hookahs in the tents with cement and brick walls.
More such videos from various protest sites are viral on social media.

From free tents to free dental check-ups. All facilities for free just to make sure farmers stay and keep protesting.

This is just a glimpse of what is happening at Singhu border.
As of now, because of the road blocks, by some estimates, a loss of Rs 27,000 crore has been incurred by Delhi and neighbouring states. The agitating farmers from Punjab and some from Haryana are protesting against the new farm laws brought in by the Modi government which opens up the market and allows them to sell their produce to whoever they wish to. The old system of farmers bringing their produce to mandis and selling through APMC will continue as is. However, backed by Congress and other political parties, the said farmers from Punjab have been camping at Delhi border.
