Ludhiana: RSS leader Jagdish Gagneja, who was severely injured after being shot at by some bike-borne assailants, continued to be critical today, doctors said.

He was examined by a team of senior doctors of PGIMER and DMCH this morning, Wander said.

The memorandum which was addressed to Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal also demanded that the government deal firmly with the “forces trying to destablise the country.”
