Jalandhar, March 31
Residents of villages, bastis, slums and residential areas here today banged utensils on their rooftops to protest the unavailability of food on a call of the Zameen Prapti Sangharsh Committee and Pendu Mazdoor Union.
Residents of Nurmahal, Nakodar, Shahkot, Jalandhar West, Kartarpur, among other areas stood on their rooftops banging pots, pans, containers, tin cans and utensils.
