Farm activists protest in Maloya

Chandigarh, July 28

A small group of farm activists today protested near the community centre at Maloya.

The activists had gathered at the venue to protest against the Mayor’s visit. However, none of the BJP representatives showed up at the event organised by a local NGO – Child Women Protect Welfare Society Chandigarh.

Rajwinder Gill, one of the protesters, said, “We had information that the Mayor was to come for this event.”

The founder of the NGO, Babita Chandaliya, was miffed with the protesters. “This was an event of the disabled people, but it has been made political. I support farmers too, but this is unfair.”

The farmers protested at the venue for about 20 minutes and later dispersed. — TNS
