Labh Singh, who runs a salon in Kurukshetra, has put up a stall a Singhu border and is providing free service to the protesting farmers. He has come with five workers.

"Ninety per cent of visitors to my salon in Kurukshetra are farmers. I've shut it and have come here to support farmers. I'll stay here to provide them services till the protest lasts," Singh said.

 

Asked about how he will pay his five employees, the salon owner said he had some money saved with which he will pay his workers.

"My workers have no problem in providing free services. I have some money saved. For now, I am living on that. I will also pay my workers with that," he added.

The farmers protesting at Singhu border appreciated Labh Singh's services and said it has made their life easier.
