The leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and co-head of Punjab affairs, Raghav Chadha, blamed the Congressional government for Punjab’s lax security system and called the Channi government a very weak and unnecessary government. He claimed that the Congressional government had completely failed to protect the people of the Punjab. During the press conference held at the party’s headquarters on Thursday, Chadha said that the Punjab is the land of gurus. The people of the Punjab are peace loving people; Living together and mutual brotherhood is the beauty of Punjab. But some anti-Punjab forces attempt to spoil the peace, prosperity and brotherhood of Punjab whenever elections approach. Also in 2017, just before the elections, there were bombings in Maur and sacrilegious incidents by Sri Guru Granth Sahib and Coran Sahib. Likewise, once again, with the approach of elections, some anti-Punjab forces are engaging in bombings and sacrilege of religious scriptures to create an atmosphere of fear. There was an attempted sacrilege in Sri Harmandir Sahib and a bombing occurred in broad daylight in Ludhiana.
Chadha expressed concern over the Prime Minister Modi’s security failure incident and said that Prime Minister Modi and the BJP are extremely unpopular in Punjab. Our political ideology is also completely different from that of Modi and the BJP but it is a big surprise that there is a loophole in the security of the Prime Minister. However, the Prime Minister needed an excuse to cancel the rally as the chairs were completely empty at the rally. And the weak Congressional government gave them the excuse of security. He demanded an impartial investigation into the Prime Minister’s security breaches. Chadha attacked the Congressional government, claiming that the Channi government was so incompetent and weak that within 100 days, four DGPs were changed and every twelve hours a new transfer list is issued. The leaders of Congress, fighting among themselves for power, will never be able to protect the Punjab. He said that the Punjab needs a government that ensures peace and at the same time better security. Neither Channi’s weak government nor Badal’s corrupt government can do this job. He promised the people of Punjab that the Aam Aadmi party would give a stable and strong government to the Punjab. The AAP government will fully protect the Punjab and the people of Punjab and make the Punjab peaceful, happy and prosperous. Speaking to the media, AAP leader and Assembly opposition leader Harpal Singh Cheema said the congressional government could not catch even a single culprit for the Maur and the blast. sacrilege case over the past five years. On the contrary, it protects the mafia and the criminals. If those responsible for the sacrileges, shooting and bombings had been punished, no such tragic incident would have happened in Punjab today. He said the traditional parties were trying to get votes from the people of Punjab by creating an atmosphere of panic and fear. But now the people of Punjab have understood their infamous intention. This time, the people of Punjab will not allow their malicious desires to come true.
