BJP MP Shwait Malik faces farmers’ ire in Bathinda

BSP holds bike rally against Hardeep Singh Puri, Ravneet Bittu

Bathinda, June 30

Senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member Shwait Malik, who arrived at AIIMS here today to attend its first estate committee meeting, faced the wrath of farmers.

Under the banners of the BKU (Ekta-Ugrahan), BKU (Sidhupur), BKU (Dakonda) and Democratic Kisan, farmers in large numbers gathered outside AIIMS and staged a protest. The police had to arrange Malik’s escape through a temporary route. When Malik’s convoy was entering AIIMS around 10 am amid heavy police deployment and barricading, farmers raised slogans against the Centre, demanding repeal of the farm laws. They also showed him black flags. Meanwhile, protesting against the comments on ‘panthic’ seats by Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and Congress MP Ravneet Bittu, BSP workers took out a bike rally from Morinda to Chamkaur Sahib today. — TNS
