The Army is deployed in the vicinity of the Dera headquarters to maintain law and order in the nearby areas where curfew is in force since Thursday night. There are some 120 social organisations engaged in social work in Sirsa assembly constituency, which has a population of 2.5 lakh.
People have also constructed a long wall called "neki ki diwar" on Dabwali Road where locals keep items they do not need so that the needy could use them.
Also, a "roti bank", which works on the principle of collecting food from donors and distributing it among the poor, was launched in Sirsa recently.
Kandoi, a supplier of mustard oil, said there are 40 people in his group who serve tea, snacks, lunch and dinner to security personnel and journalists.
Another resident, Mahender Kumar, said the residents come forward and donate money everyday for serving tea, snacks and food to security personnel.
"We will continue to make such arrangements for security personnel till they are here," Suresh Soni, a resident of Beghu, said.
