Linemen and TET unions postpone protest at mela

It was tense time for police in the entire mela as they were on toes because of the calls given by unemployed linemen and TET pass unions to lodge their protest at the SAD conference on Thursday. However, the protest was postponed.

According to president of Unemployed Linemen Union Peermal Singh, "We had a meeting with DIG S S Dhillon who led a delegation to meet Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal. The CM assured us to take up our demands soon. So we postponed our protest."

The TET union too gave the same reply.

The police were alert all the time and when the CM was giving a speech, about four-five people were turned out of the conference hall. Singh, however, stated that no one from their union was in that pandal and they would wait for response of the government and later would intensify the protest if the government backtracked again.
