Notably, the protesters have been agitating against the scrapping of the GoG scheme in Punjab.

Slamming the Punjab Government for scrapping the Guardians of Governance (GOG) scheme on September 9, 2022, protester Jagjit Singh said that the "government halted the scheme without giving any notice. The dignity of all the soldiers has been hurt by the claims that the scheme (GOG) has failed to achieve the goal for which they were appointed, and that they have made no contribution over the last four years."
