The Zila Banao Sangharsh Samiti has intensified its agitation for granting the district status to Nurpur. To pressure Himahcal Pradesh Govt, Zila Banao Sangharsh Samiti organised a public meeting and Nurpur, which was attended by people from all four Assembly segments of lower Kangra – Nurpur, Jawali, Fatehpur and Indora.
The samiti, led by its president Mastan Singh, served one month’s ultimatum on the state government to fulfill its demand. While addressing the public meeting, local MLA Rakesh Pathania announced that the samiti would further intensify the stir if Nurpur was not accorded the district status within one month and he would sit on an indefinite fast.
Later, the samiti submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister through the local SDM. The samiti also launched a special awareness campaign in support of its demand by taking out a procession of around 200 vehicles carrying samiti members through the four Assembly segments of lower Kangra, which got a rousing reception from people.
