Christian woman MPA from Punjab express concern on land grabbers of cemetery


Mandi Bahauddin: June 2, 2017. (Sher Gondal) Punjab MPA Mst Shunila Ruth visited Chillianwala Christian cemetery, 23 KM in the East from here.
The cemetery is stretched over land measuring 260 Kanal and is located in Chillianwala estate. Seeing most of the graveyard under illegal occupation, the MPA said this was shocking for her. She said the land mafia had occupied the land with allegedly connivance of local administration. This illegal exercise is not acceptable.
She urged Punjab CM to direct relevant authority to get the graveyard land vacated. She also demanded legal action against those who had occupied the land. She also urged local government to treat minorities as envisaged in the constitution. She said that she would raise this point in the Punjab Assembly as well in its next session.
Local leaders of Christian community accompanied the MPA during her tour in Mandi Bahauddim district.
