Agitation on despite curbs in Bathinda

Bathinda, September 12

Despite the pandemic and the fact that Section 144 has been imposed in the district, farmer unions and other organisations have been continuously staging protests outside the District Administrative Complex (DAC) in Bathinda on almost a daily basis.

Irked over non-fulfillment of demands, BKU Sidhupur activists have been staging an indefinite protest against the state government for the last 10 days outside the DAC. The activists on Friday intensified their protest and gheraoed the complex.

BKU Sidhupur leader Kaka Singh Kotra said, “We are protesting against the decision of making Mandikalan nagar panchayat to gram panchayat and demanding cancelling of cases registered against farmers for stubble burning and removal of red entry in revenue for those who burnt stubble”. — TNS
