Muktsar: Residents of Gurusar village in Gidderbaha subdivision here have announced that they wouldn't allow any politician to visit their residences in the wake of their protest against the farm Acts. The decision was taken in a meeting held at the village gurdwara. It has been decided that the restrictions would be lifted after the Centre withdraws the three laws. "We, the farmers of the village, have decided not to allow any politician to visit our residences. To ensure the same, 200 out of 300 stickers have been pasted instructing no entry to any bureaucrat. The objective is to build pressure on the authorities. We are hopeful that other villages too will follow the suit," said Harman Singh, a farmer of the village.
