Congress will stage dharnas at various places in Punjab on Wednesday to bring to attention of the government issues concerning people.


The party's state unit chief Partap Singh Bajwa on Tuesday said the Congressmen would stage dharnas at the district headquarters raising issues including "power shortage, increasing corruption and to press the demand for CBI probe into drug racket (in Punjab)".

Decision to this effect had been announced by Congress general secretary Shakeel Ahmed after a meeting of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) here on July 15, he said.

Congressmen would submit memorandum to the respective deputy commissioners, Bajwa said here.
