Jalandhar: Hundreds of members of the Dalit Samaj today held a massive protest at Jalandhar demanding resignation of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Congress, President, Partap Singh Bajwa for his being anti-poor and anti-Dalit under the banner of the Dr. Ambedkar Mission. They also demanded the appointment of a Dalit as the PPCC president if the Congress was to be revived in Punjab.
The activists led by Vicky Sahota, Naresh Nahar and Deepak Kumar Sonu burnt the effigy of the PPCC president at the Workshop Chowk here. They were shouting slogans against Bajwa and seeking his immediate removal. They said while Bajwa had ignored all the genuine and well meaning workers of the party, he had also totally ignored the Dalit Samaj. He never attended any of their programmes even after making commitment.
Kumar said that if the Congress was to be revived in Punjab, it must remove Bajwa and appoint some dalit leader.
Among others present on the occasion included Sandeep Kumar Advocate, Sikander Gill, Rohan, Sandeep Kumar Sonu Advocate, Karan Manga, Gurmail Singh, Chinki, Lucky, Kamal Sahota, Monu Sahota, Moni Sahota, Raj Kumar Nagar and Sunil Hans.
