In his appeal, he said, “We have worked hard to achieve an incident-free agitation so far; I appeal to everyone to keep it this way and maintain disciple.”
He added, “We have worked too hard to throw it all away with a few unsavoury incidents, so please follow all the directions of the jathebandis (Unions) and have a peaceful rally. Happy Independence Day to everyone.”
Amrik Randhawa went on to join films, making a name for himself in films both as actor and producer.
