Ludhiana, October 27

Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi today called a special Vidhan Sabha Session on November 8, asking the central government to withdraw the notification of increasing the BSF’s area of control from 15 km to 50 km.

Won’t tolerate centre’s interference

The Centre’s interference won’t be tolerated… we cannot demoralise the Punjab Police. Such directives are akin to imposition of President’s rule. —Charanjit Singh Channi, CM

He made it clear if the notification was not rolled back, the state government would move the Supreme Court. “The central government’s interference in Punjab wouldn’t be tolerated. This is entirely the state’s right to decide the area of control. We cannot demoralise the Punjab Police. Such directives are like imposition of President’s rule in the state,” he said. Channi said during the Assembly session, the focus would also be on withdrawal of the central farm laws. “If these Acts are not withdrawn before November 8, the state government will intensify its protest,” he said. — TNS
