Bharat Bandh: Congress activists protest across Punjab
The protests were held in Ludhiana, Amritsar, Jalandhar, Patiala, Bathinda, Ferozepur and other towns across Punjab.
In Ludhiana, the protest was led by MP Ravneet Singh Bittu. He said that the Central government has failed to deliver on any of the promises made to the people in the 2014 general elections.
Fuel prices have affected the lives of everyone, especially the common man, he added.
The protesters took out a march against the Central government and burnt effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
