People of villages in sub tehsil Kumkalan should be given ownership rights
CPI will stand by them in their just struggle
Ludhiana: In connection with the proposed Industrial Park in Matewara, a delegation of the Communist Party of India including Comrades Gulzar Goria – Member National Council, M S Bhatia, Gurdev Raur, Mahinder Majalian and Dr Nand Lal visited the area. They met former Sarpanch of village Sekhowal S.Dhira Singh and others. The party is the firm view point that the land was a jungle at one time which the people of the area made fertile after hard labour for decades and now this is their sole bread earning place. Earlier too, the government and the land mafia tried to grab this land but it was saved after consistent struggle led by Comrades Nahar Singh Mangat, Labh Singh Raur, Ajit Singh Leli and Yudh Shamsher Singh. Ultimately the supreme court gave the land to Gram Panchayat. Party demands that the people should not be displaced and they should be given ownership rights of the land which they have been tilling for years together.
