Students,teachers and literary organisations held a peace rally at the Students Centre on Monday with a view to improve people-to-people contact between India and Pakistan.
The rally was part of a campaign,launched by Yuvsatta,to collect thousands of signatures from 50 cities across India to establish peace between the two nations. Professor Sukhdev Singh,general secretary,Punjabi Sahit Academy,Ludhiana,said: It is painful to know that India has refused a visa to Madiha Gohars theatre due to security purposes. This is the second time that the Indian government has refused visa.
Promod Sharma,coordinator,Yuvsatta,said: All the signatures collected from various parts of the country will be submitted to the Prime Minister of India on February 8.
