Radical Sikh body Dal Khalsa has launched a campaign to garner support for its June 6 Amritsar bandh call to mark the 32nd anniversary of Operation Bluestar.
On Tuesday, youth groups associated with the Dal Khalsa distributed posters and leaflets across the city, urging traders and educational bodies to keep their establishments closed.
Activists of ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’, led by its chief Paramjit Singh, also interacted with people in various markets and localities.
Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh, however, said medical stores would remain open, adding that the bandh would be peaceful and road and rail traffic will not be disrupted.
Earlier, in a meeting held under the chairmanship of Harpal Singh Cheema, it was decided that Dal Khalsa activists will hit the streets on June 3 --- the day army launched its operation in June 1984.
