Daily wagers seek loan waiver



Tribune News Service

Bathinda, January 24

Mazdoor Mukti Morcha members carried out a protest march in Bathinda on Sunday demanding a loan waiver for women from micro finance firms.

Harwinder Singh Sema, state leader of the union, said, “Since our demand for a loan waiver for women was not fulfilled for a long time, we have started a 15-day-long sit-in in front of office of Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal and other Cabinet ministers in the state. We also demand that the government must provide panchayati and government-owned land to landless people so that they can construct houses.”

“While we stand against the Union Government and support farmers in their struggle against the three laws, we also oppose the apathetic stance of the state government for not fulfilling the promises made to the worker class. Heavy electricity bills have adversely affected lives of poor people in the state,” he added.
