Chandigarh (Punjab):

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has ordered an immediate withdrawal of an official letter that incorrectly claimed that some farm protests have been organised by the state government.

"The Punjab Chief Minister today ordered shifting of the Sardulgarh BDPO to the headquarters and immediate withdrawal of the letter issued by him regarding some farm protests which he incorrectly claimed to have been organised by the State Govt," read a press statement from Punjab Chief Minister's Office.

The Sardulgarh Block Development and Panchayat Officer (BDPO) had, on his own, announced protest dharna on September 21 and issued a letter asking all Panchayat Secretaries under his block to intimate all sarpanches about the same.

State Govt had neither planned such protests against farm ordinances nor asked BDPO to issue letter, said the Punjab CMO.
