Effigies burnt
: Leaders and members of 16 Hindu organisations burnt effigies of the Punjab Local Bodies Minister, Chaudhary Jagjit Singh, and Mayor Surinder Mahey on Tuesday in front of the office of the local Municipal Corporation to lodge their protest against the “non-acceptance” of their long-pending demand that Maqsudan Chowk be renamed after Shaheed Madan Lal Dhingra.
