Ludhiana, October 19: In a bizarre incident, a section of farmers were stopped at the gate of Verka Milk Plant in Ludhiana on Thursday, where Punjab Chief Minister arrived to inaugurate a new plant. The farmers were stopped as they were wearing black turbans.

In protest, farmers removed their turbans and placed them on the grill of the gate.

Farmers said wearing black turbans had nothing to do with the event. They were being harassed unnecessarily. The farmers said they belonged to dairy farming and were not aware of the fact that they would not be allowed to participate in the Chief Minister's programme on the ground that they were wearing black turbans.
