Tribune News Service

Ambala, December 1

Union Minister of State for Jal Shakti and Ambala MP Rattan Lal Kataria and Ambala City MLA Aseem Goel faced opposition from a group of protesters, who are residents of Kola village, today.

The BJP leaders had gone to lay the foundation stone for a railway under-bridge (RUB) project near Jandli level crossing in Ambala City on Tuesday. The railway under-bridge will be constructed at a cost of Rs 7 crore.

The protesters raised slogans 'Kisan ekta zindabad', showed black flags to the BJP leaders and raised slogans against them.

The protesters said they are farmers and the farm laws introduced by the BJP were the only reason behind their protest.

Reacting angrily, Kataria said, "A seven-decade-old demand for an RUB is being fulfilled. Some people are raising slogans and showing us black flags. If nothing else, these people should at least think about the development of their area. They should have protested somewhere else as we are here for developmental work. I request God to give some sense to these people. The new laws are farmer-friendly. The Opposition is trying to mislead the farmers."

City MLA Goel said, "The farmers have the right to protest. If a politician can hear the slogans raised in his favour, he should also be ready to hear the slogans raised against him. But they should have welcomed the work being done here with a big heart. I am grateful to the Railway Minister for giving approval to the project."
