Activists of the Punjab Khet Majdoor Union ( PKMU) greeted the Akali leaders, including SAD candidate from here Paramjit Kaur Gulshan, with black flags in Nangal village on Saturday evening when they visited the village to seek votes.


Activists, including women and children, had assembled two hours before the visit of the leaders to the community hall where the SAD candidate was scheduled to address the residents. “We had decided to register our protest by showing black flags to the SAD leaders when they visited our villages to seek votes because the government had backtracked from accepting our demands after a week-long protest in Bathinda in February,” claimed Gurpal Singh, district general secretary of the union.

”When we had been protesting, none of the SAD leaders listened to us. Even during the last year’s kidnapping and rape case, people continued their struggle for many days to get justice, but Paramjit Kaur Gulshan, MP, did not turn up to show sympathy with the victim girl’s family,” alleged Buta Singh, state committee member of union.
