San Antonio’s Sikh community feeds federal agents during government shutdown
The Sikh community is offering langar to federal agents during government shutdown from Saturday at the Sikh Center of San Antonio. The langar will be available for all government employees during the shutdown. The ongoing partial government shutdown enters its 22nd day. And the federal employees did not receive their paychecks.
The President of the Sikh Center of San Antonio, Balwinder Dhillon, said that the Sikh Community is there to support the federal employees who did not receive their paychecks. Also, the Sikh Community appreciates their services and believes in giving gratitude to those men and women for doing a wonderful service for the nation.
The Sikh Community is serving freshly cooked vegetables, lentils, rice and chapatti in langar. The langar is being prepared by volunteers from the community. They started preparing at around 4:00 am.
Balwinder Dhillon told the media that they would continue feeding federal employees as long as the shutdown continues.
