Hoshiarpur: The president of Bharat Jagao Andolan and Social Democratic Party, Mr. Jai Gopal Dhiman along with Seema Rani visited the Takhni village in the mountainous area of Hoshiarpur district. He along with the residents of Takhni burnt the effigy of the Punjab Government for the least development in the area.
Jai Gopal Dhiman said, “There is no drinking facility, wild animals destroy the crops, no proper electricity supply and no specific cremation place at Takhni village.” He added, “The Punjab as well as Union Government have ignored such areas of Hoshiarpur district and these areas have null and void the developmental claims of Punjab Government.”
Jai Gopal Dhiman said that the villagers have been drinking polluted water which causes various types of diseases to them. He said that the villagers have approached their representatives (MP, MLAs) and even administrative officials for their problems but they provided no solution.
He said that the Punjab Government must hear the cry of these people and provide them required facilities.
