Congress work­ers from Atam Na­gar assem­bly con­stituency per­formed surgery on the ef­fi­gies of chief min­is­ter Parkash Singh Badal and deputy chief min­is­ter Sukhbir Singh Badal as a mark of protest against Rs 1,000 crore new taxes in­tro­duced by the rul­ing SAD-BJP al­liance gov­ern­ment in Pun­jab. The protest was led by party MLA Bharat Bhushan Ashu and se­nior Congress leader KK Bawa. “On one side the state gov­ern­ment was con­tem­plat­ing to pur­chase a he­li­copter worth Rs 38 crore and on the other hand it is bur­den­ing peo­ple with un­rea­son­able taxes,” said Bawa.
