Excellent work in the ‘land of donators’
The Army and paramilitary forces are deployed to maintain law and order in the vicinity of Dera headquarters and nearby areas where curfew is imposed since Thursday night. Every day people in Sirsa wake up as early as 4 am to prepare breakfast for Army personnel, paramilitary forces, police and media persons, who are working round the clock near the Dera Sach Sauda headquarters in Sirsa which is also known as the "land of donators" in Haryana.
All through the day, a group of people does the rounds in motor bikes, gypsy cars and tractors to deliver snacks, tea, lassi and food to security and Army personnel.
Sirsa, with a population of 2.5 lakh has around 120 social organizations engaged in social work. There is "Neki ki diwar" on the Dabwali road where people keep things that they no longer need, but the same can be used by the needy. Another initiative is the roti bank where food is collected from the do gooders and distributed among the poor.
A businessman named Kandoi has 40 people in his group who serve tea, snacks, lunch and dinner to security personnel and media persons. He informed that the people of Sirsa, popularly known as 'the land of donators' in Haryana, believe in serving humanity. Hence, it was agreed upon to serve Army, paramilitary forces, police personnel and media persons when a curfew was imposed in the area.
