New Delhi :Khalsa Aid, an international NGO has setup foot massage centre at SinghuBorder for the convenience of the farmers, who are primarily old in age, protesting against the new farmlaws for past 17 days.

"We have received an amazing response with this service to an extent that many eyes were filled with tears of joy as for them it was hard to believe that such a service could be provided in these conditions," one of the volunteers of the organisation told IANS while adding that 25 machines have been set up.
