SAD holds protest in solidarity with sugarcane farmers in Morinda
Demanding increase in State Advised Price (SAP) for sugarcane farmers, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Friday protested against the Captain Amarinder Singh led Punjab government.
The protestors were joined by thousands of Shiromani Akali Dal and BJP workers, with the SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal leading the demonstration at Morinda.
