Bathinda, December 21
Farmer unions and other organisations today staged a protest in front of the Income Tax Department office in Mansa district and burnt an effigy of the Union Government to express their resentment over I-T raids on the premises of several arhtiyas amid the farmers’ agitation.
Earlier, the protesters gathered at the city railway station and raised slogans against the Centre and the department.
Gurjant Singh, a leader of the Punjab Kisan Union, said, “People from all walks of life have extended their support to the farmers’ agitation, and this has not gone down well with the Central Government. It is now resorting to such tactics to sabotage the farmers’ movement.” Krantikari Kisan Union leader Bhajan Singh said, “We condemn this move of the department. If the raids continued, we will chalk out the future course of action and intensify our protest.” — TNS
