Hoshiarpur: The Hoshiarpur unit of Congress today installed a retail stall of sand at Clock Tower Chowk in the leadership of DCC President MLA Sunder Sham Arora and sold sand to the general public. The Congress used this gesture to protest against the smuggling of sand by the leaders of ruling parties.
MLA Sunder Sham Arora alleged that the leaders of the ruling parties were involved in the illegal mining and smuggling of sand. He said that the people of Punjab would punish the ruling parties in the coming 2017 assembly elections for their anti-people activities.
MLA Arora sought apology from the people for the inconvenience caused during the protest at Clock Tower Chowk. He said that these protests are necessary for making the people aware against the misdeeds of the ruling parties.
Many leaders and workers of Hoshiarpur Congress were present in the protest.
