Sangrur: Various farm and civil rights bodies on the occasion of World Human Rights day reportedly submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner of district Sangrur against the proposal of the Punjab Government to implement the Punjab Control of Organised Crime Act (PCOCA) in the state.
“The state wants to convert Punjab into a police state by passing PCOCA, which is against the democratic rights of the people of the state. We have decided to oppose it,” reads the statement of Sanjeev Mintu, president of Krantikari Pendu Mazdoor Union (KPMU) published in an English vernacular.
Apart from the KPMU, other organisations, which participated in a meeting near the DC office, included Punjab Subordinate Services Association, BKU Ugraha, Zamhoori Kisan Sabha, BKU Dakaunda, Zamhoori Adhikar Sabha, Zameen Prapati Sangharsh Committee, Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union, Tarksheel Society, Democratic Teachers Front and Naujwan Bharat Sabha, notes The Tribune (TT).
