Chandigarh, February 1
Amid growing concerns over the persons from Punjab reportedly missing in the Delhi-Haryana region since the Republic Day tractor rally, CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday announced helpline number 112 to report all such instances, even as 70 lawyers were appointed by state Advocate General Atul Nanda on his directive to provide free legal aid to farmers facing cases in the national capital.
Assuring all possible help, the CM said his Cabinet colleagues had met the Union Home Minister on the issue and he would personally take up the cases of such missing persons or farmers with the Ministry of Home Affairs. “We will do everything possible to locate those who are missing,” he said. — TNS
