Jobless protest in Bathinda

Bathinda, June 1

The joint front of unemployed youth staged a protest and burnt an effigy of the state government over its alleged failure in fulfilling its pre-poll promises and giving them jobs.

The union representatives said meetings scheduled with the government were cancelled on numerous occasions and now they had decided to gherao the Moti Mahal residence of the CM in Patiala on June 8. Notably, members of the front have been sitting on an indefinite dharna outside the Education Minister’s residence since December 31. After the panel meeting with the government on May 31 remained inconsequential, they decided to protest on June 1. — TNS
