Jalandhar, July 9

Latifpura residents, along with a 17-member delegation of the Latifpura Murh Waseba Morcha, held a protest outside the rented residence of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann at Jalandhar Cantonment here today. The delegation demanded reconstruction of the demolished houses on the original site.

Members of the displaced families said they had been forced to sleep under the open sky for the past over one and a half years. The government had shown little interest in addressing their plight.

The delegation members handed over a demand letter to CM’s OSD Onkar Singh and sought a meeting with Mann on the issue. Onkar Singh assured the delegation members that their meeting with the CM would be scheduled after July 15 and their grievances would be resolved.

The delegation members said due to the negligence of the state government, several residents, who were living under open sky, had fallen ill. One of the residents, Mohinder Singh, even died today. They warned that if the government failed to fulfil their demands, they would be forced to intensify their protest.

Mahendra Singh Bajwa, president of the Kisan Union Amritsar, Lakhvir Singh, chief speaker of the Kisan Union Rajewal, along with other leaders Kashmir Singh Jandiala, Mandeep Singh, Pargat Singh Makhu, Makhan Singh were part of the delegation.
