Palampur Zila Banao Sangharsh Samiti intensifies its agitation

The Palampur Zila Banao Sangharsh Samiti intensified its agitation in support of their demand to accord the district status for Palampur. The samiti flagged off a Rath Yatra that would pass through 500 villages under three sub-divisions of Jaisinghpur, Baijnath and Palampur. The Yatra will return to Palampur on May 16, 2012.

Jagmel Katoch, president of the Palampur Zila Banao Sangharsh Samiti, said a yatra will be followed by the complete strike on May 16 across this region and a protest march would also be held at Palampur on that day in which residents of all the three sub-divisions of the Palampur region would participate.
