Meanwhile, Apni Party leaders and workers today organized a protest demonstration at Akhnoor Tehsil demanding a regular Sub Divisional Magistrate in the Akhnoor Sub Division.
While speaking at the protesting site, party leaders emphasis that Akhnoor Sub Division comprised of larger area and population which is badly suffering due to ad-hoc arrangement of SDM assigning additional charge to SDM Chowki Chora to attend for few days at Akhnoor Sub Division which does not meet the requirements to redress the grievances and disposal of official /public related issues in a time bound manner.
The protesters also highlighted and raised the issue of opening of roads through the army area from Grenadier Chowk to Daskal Akhnoor at village Gurha Talab Panchayat Halqa Ambaran.
