Jalandhar, September 12

Members of the district Congress on Saturday staged a protest over the exclusion of Punjabi as one of the official languages of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The Congress leaders condemned the Centre’s approval to a Bill which proposes to make Kashmiri, Dogri and Hindi the official languages of Jammu and Kashmir.

Led by MLA Rajinder Beri, Congress leaders burnt an effigy of PM Narendra Modi outside the Municipal Corporation office. District Congress Committee urban president Baldev Singh and Jalandhar Youth Congress president Angad Dutta also protested against the move.
