Youth throws degrees at Badal's car
Upset over not being allowed to meet Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, an unemployed youth on Monday threw his degrees and certificates at the car of the chief minister in Punjab's Muktsar district.
Dinesh Kumar, 25, threw his certificates towards Badal's car as it came out from Badal's farmhouse in Badal village of Muktsar, 260 km from here.
The chief minister's security personnel immediately detained the youth. He was later let off with a warning, police officials said. His certificates were returned to him.
Kumar, who hails from Killianwali village,the certificates in disgust as Badal's security personnel did not allow him to meet the chief minister.
Badal, 88, enjoys Z-plus security cover.
The Punjab government and the chief minister face protests from unemployed youth and others at a number of venues. With assembly elections just around four months away, the protests have also increased.
