It's been over 300 days since farmers started protesting at the borders of Delhi against the contentious farm laws. Farmers called for a Bharat Bandh on Monday that began at 6 am and ended at 4 pm.

At the Singhu protest site, Newslaundry's Nidhi Suresh spoke with Ajeeth Pal Singh, who has been at the protest site for 10 months. He runs a small stall 'Mitti Aid' and gives free massages to people.
