Good Samaritans offer 'langar' to people at Delhi's Burari ground


Burari, Nov 28 : Even as the Delhi Police has allowed farmers to visit Burari ground in north Delhi to hold their protest against three central farm laws, a couple of good Samaritans are offering free 'langar sewa' or community kitchen food there to ensure that no one goes hungry. Even though farmers from Punjab and Haryana, who have rallied at Tikari and Singhu borders as well as Burari, have brought along their own dry provisions and other essentials to prepare food in community kitchens (langar) for the protesters, there are people who don't have any arrangements for meals during the agitation. Thus, the good Samaritans from across Delhi have been visiting the Burari ground, also known as Nirankari ground, bringing along cooked food so that no one goes hungry. "We have been serving 'langar' to the poor in Delhi in the past. But since it was the need of the hour, we have come to the Burari ground to serve food to whosoever wants. If needed, we will come here again," Parvinder Singh, a volunteer with 'Guru Ki Langar Sewa' NGO that has been feeding the hungry since 1987, told IANS. He said that they had made arrangement to feed up to 1,000 persons. /IANS
