JALANDHAR: Asserting that it was none other than the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal who was responsible for the death of senior RSS leader Brig (Retd) Jagdish Gagneja, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder today said that he (the Chief Minister) was now shedding crocodile tears.
Reacting to Badal’s allegation that the Congress was playing politics over Gagneja’s death, Capt Amarinder asked him as with what face he had gone to meet his family and condole his death when the family was still awaiting justice as none of the culprits had even been identified so far, leave aside arrested.
“One and a half month has passed and you continue to remain clueless about the culprits and still you have the audacity to blame us for playing politics when we are asking the genuine questions”, he told Badal, while asserting, the very fact that the culprits have not even been identified till now further reinforces the public suspicion against him (Badal) and his involvement.
Calling Badal’s bluff, Capt Amarinder asked him why no action had been taken against the culprits responsible for murderous attack on Sant Ranjit Singh Dhadarianwale as everybody knew who was responsible.
“When you are shielding the mastermind of the attack, how can you deny our charges of your involvement in all these incidents?” he asked, while adding “everybody knows that you wanted to silence the Sants who were exposing you for your involvement in the Bargadi sacrilege”.
The PCC president said, Badal had a purpose in all this to create a sense of fear among people. “Whether it was the sacrilege in Bargadi, Malerkotla or Ludhiana or the attack on Sant Dhadarianwale and the killing of Brig Gagneja and Namdhari Mata Chand Kaur, every probe and investigation will lead to Mr Badal”, he reiterated, adding, “it was matter of few months more when everything will be established beyond any doubt”.
