Bathinda, March 21

Residents of Ablu village in Bathinda staged a protest against laying of a sewerage pipeline from Bathinda city to Chanbhan drain. The protesters raised slogans against the district administration and state government.

Harpreet Singh Brar, block president of BKU (Sidhupur), said, “With this sewerage pipeline, polluted water from the city will be discharged in the drain. Apart from foul smell, the drain water will also make villagers vulnerable to diseases. It will also adversely affect the value of the land.” Union members said if the work was not stopped, they would start an indefinite stir. — TNS
