Despite ban, local unit of the Aam Aadmi Party organised a protest march here demanding to save the traders and business community from economic woes and to wake up the state government. The protesters raised slogans against the state government and demanded to act wisely and save people of the state from economic woes as soon as possible in this time of Covid-19 epidemic. Sandeep Saini of the AAP said the government was duty-bound to provide livelihood to the people, but it was unfortunate that the Capt government even during the severe period of this pandemic, is busy doing politics and sadly the government is also dividing business community into what is needed and what is not. “The general public of Punjab is demanding an answer from Capt as to how any business, that bears the financial burden of one's home and the family, can be unnecessary”, he said, adding that if the Capt government was a true benefactor of the people then he should credit financial assistance in the bank accounts of the people of Punjab on the lines of Delhi government. Ajay Verma, vice-president, intellectual cell, said that with the onset of lockdown, trade and commerce in almost the entire Punjab was on the verge of extinction. He said that it was not understandable that why Capt was coming up with such policies which were breaking the back of trade. He appealed to government to reconsider its decisions and implement pro-people policies in Punjab. Khushiram Dhiman, Yogendra Singh Raja, Ajaib Singh, Rajesh Sharda, Raju Khatri, Nitish Kumar Nishu, Tarun Gupta and others were present on the occasion.
