Members of the Bathinda unit of BKU (Qadian) on Monday staged a protest against the state government and banks in front of the District Administrative Complex (DAC) here.

They gathered at Children’s Park and later they took out a protest march and staged a protest in front of the DAC. The protest was headed by union district president Jagsir Jeeda. The members raised slogans against the state government.

Union leaders Sukhdarshan Singh Khemuana and Beant Singh Mehma Sarja said Primary Agricultural Development Banks (PADBs) were sending kurki notices to farmers, so they were feeling harassed and under pressure.
