We have been asking the time for a long time, a protester said.

"Protesting is your right," said Warring, adding that "I along with Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa stepped out of our cars to talk to you." To this, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said, "It's a drama." "The government is doing drama," a protestor replied, adding that the government made a lot of promises before the 2017 polls but nothing was fulfilled.

To this, Warring asked the protestor to have some respect. "You are talking to a Home Minister and a Deputy Chief Minister," said Warring. "Do whatever you want then," Randhawa said.

The Deputy CM further directed the DC to suspend the protesting employees who are supposed to be on duty. "This is what you can do," the protesters replied. Meanwhile, the protesters alleged that Sukhjinder Randhawa misbehaved with them.
