The party would raise its voice against the state government on April 6, during the workers meeting, said Pawan Dewan, president of district Congress (urban), on Tuesday.


Dewan added that top leaders of the party will attend the meeting.

He was speaking during a meeting with the members of Valmiki community and said that the state government is not doing enough for the unprivileged people of Punjab including the members of the Valmiki community.

'A lot of funds were being released by the central government but that was not being provided to the community,' Dewan added.

The SAD-BJP government had also announced closure of 690 primary schools in the state that would affect the education of poor students, Dewan added.

He said the Congress would not tolerate the policy of state government towards the unprivileged and down-trodden.
