Sangrur, August 11

Despite claims of various governments of providing ample help to family members of freedom fighters, many are still living in penury. They plan to disrupt Independence Day functions across Punjab, if their demands are not fulfilled.

Harinder Khalsa, president of Freedom Fighters' Successors Organisation Punjab, said they planned to disrupt Independence Day functions across the state, if the Punjab Government failed to fulfil their demands before August 15,

On Monday, family members of freedom fighters gathered at Sunam to start an indefinite protest against the state government. Their main demands include houses for the families, free electricity, exemption from toll at plazas, free medical and education facilities and jobs.

Later, the protesters met Sangrur Deputy Commissioner Ramvir.

"I had called them to know about their demands. The protesters said they wanted to meet senior authorities in the CM's office. I have conveyed this to the CMO," he said. — TNS
