Bathinda, November 25
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.
They demanded that these notices should be cancelled, release the cheque books of new debt cooperative societies, members of cooperative societies should give diesel payment, give coupon in cash as per the directions of NABARD, the interest on animal feed and important items should be reduced to 4 per cent from 11 per cent, etc.
A delegation of the union members submitted a memorandum of demands to the Deputy Commissioner through Tehsildar Sukhbir Singh Brar.
They also demanded the cancellation of the cases registered against farmers for burning stubble.
Union members Surjit Singh Sandoha, Resham Singh, Bhola Singh, Gurpreet Singh, Nachatar Singh and others were present.
