HomeBJP leaders face protests in Amritsar, Jalandhar

BJP leaders face protests in Amritsar, Jalandhar

A group of farmers raised anti-BJP slogans when Rajya Sabha MP and former BJP state president Shwait Malik visited the Regional Passport Office (RPO) here today.

As Malik came out of the office, a farmers’ group, under the banner of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee (KMSC), blocked the exit gate and started raising slogans. A heavy contingent of the police, deployed there, facilitated the cavalcade of Malik to pass through and averted any untoward incident.

Malik said the protesters were not “real” farmers, but a group of people with ulterior political motives. “They are associated with the Left parties. I will consider them farmers if they quit their political membership. They have been misguiding the farmers about the farm laws that were enacted for the benefit of farmers,” he said.
