ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
PUNJAB, Sep 13 (Agencies): National Commission for Minorities (NCM) member Ajaib Singh today alleged that Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has failed to protect the rights of Sikh farmers residing in the Kutch region of Gujarat.

"Badal is not serious about the cause of Sikh farmers and has failed to protect their rights."

"If he has any sympathy for them, he should impress upon Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the eviction case against Sikh farmers filed in the Apex Court," Singh told reporters here.

He said he had written letters to both Chief Ministers and urged them to show concern for Punjab farmers.

The High Court of Gujarat has ruled unanimously in favour of Sikh farmers residing in Kutch region, but the Gujarat government has appealed against the verdict in the Supreme Court, he noted.

Singh also expressed his displeasure towards Punjab government for not properly distributing scholarships meant for the minority community and said he would seek a complete report from the government in this regard.

Singh sought another report from the state government on allegations of land grabbing of a graveyard meant for the minority community at Amloh in Fatehgarh Sahib district.
