Each season, Singh offers potatoes to Pepsico and takes wheat and paddy to the APMC mandi. This season, he is cheerful that potatoes will bring great returns.

I left my farm vehicle and my streetcar at the morcha. It wouldn’t have looked great on the off chance that I eliminated my streetcar from the lines of streetcars arranged at the Singhu fringe. So I acquired my companion’s farm hauler to reap potatoes”. “onney mennu bhaicharey ch de ditta (he offered it to me in light of our fellowship),” he added.
