Hoshiarpur: Senior leader of Congress and former Minister Naresh Thakur today declared support to SAD MLA Bibi Mohinder Kaur Josh and various farmer organizations for shifting wood market to Naushehra. The wood market will be managed by Market Committee of Hoshiarpur.
Naresh Thakur said, “The brokers used to loot farmers with various types of fee and cess and it was totally illegal.” He added, “The Market Committee of Hoshiarpur have stopped this loot by shifting wood market to Naushehra and it is a welcome step in favour of farmers.”
Naresh Thakur said, “I am with the farmers and thus rising above the party lines, I support MLA Mohinder Kaur Josh in this regard.”
It is noteworthy here that the brokers staged a dharna at Kakkon on Saturday and blocked Hoshiarpur-Dasuya road. They were demanding the restoration of wood market at the previous place Kakkon.
Notably, on one hand where the wood market at Kakkon is disadvantageous for the farmers, it also create traffic problems on Hoshiarpur-Dasuya road.
