“Everyone brings something. We brought ‘Kachua Chap’ (mosquito coils) with us after many farmers complained about mosquitoes, ”says Sahab Singh, who is also a farmer.
During the afternoon, the two friends sit in their car and hold packages with mosquito coils in their hands.
‘Kachua jalao, macchar bhagao’ (light the coils, repel mosquitoes) ”, shouts Sahab Singh over the loudspeaker.
Surmail Singh, 26, says the farmers camp outside and there are open drains that are breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
“We started distributing the mosquito coils an hour ago and one box is already empty,” says Surmail Singh.
