Chandigarh, June 16

Taking cognisance of the reports of attempts by the UP government to displace more than 30,000 Sikh farmers by evicting them from the land which they had cultivated, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh today said he would take up the issue with his Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

Such an act was against the federal structure of the country and its constitutional polity, said the CM.

Reportedly, the Sikh families had been settled in the districts of Rampur, Bijnaur and Lakhimpur for three generations now, and had even received proprietorship rights from the UP government in 1980, said Capt Amarinder. — TNS
