SAD Mohali Rally: Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal among senior SAD leaders on Wednesday court arrest in Mohali after police denied permission to march towards Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi's residence.
Besides Sukhbir Singh Badal, the other Shiromani Akali Dal leaders including Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra, Daljit Singh Cheema, Bikram Singh Majithia, and NK Sharma have court arrest.
Shiromani Akali Dal held a protest march in Mohali over demands for greater compensation for farmers whose lands have been acquired by the government to develop various road projects.
The SAD also aimed to meet the Punjab governor to submit to him a memorandum in this regard.
The road projects include the Delhi-Jammu-Katra, Jamnagar-Amritsar, Ludhiana-Ropar, Amritsar-Una, and Mohali-Fatehgarh Sahib.
SAD is highlighting the injustice being perpetrated on 2 lakh farmers across 19 districts of Punjab. The agriculture land of farmers are being acquired for road projects under the Bharat Mala scheme at low rates, it alleged.
