Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal will visit the mela on September 22, when rural games and fairs would be organised.

The event will conclude on September 23 with a religious procession and deputy CM Sukhbir Badal will be in town.

Some locals claim that due to the heavy security and traffic restrictions, they are subjected to a lot of inconvenience.
