Chandigarh, October 2:
The Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Saturday urged the Chairman, Railway Board, Government of India (GoI), New Delhi to withdraw the cases registered by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) against the members of Kissan organizations.
A spokesperson of the Chief Minister's Office said that the Chief Minister has impressed upon the Chairman, Railway Board to take a sympathetic view of the matter and consider the withdrawal of cases against the members of various farmers' organizations.
