Chandigarh: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)on Friday, condemned Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh’s remarks against its leadership, saying these amounted to provoking the people to physically harm the Akalis.
Amarinder, while joining the Congress protest in front of the residence of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here, warned the Badals, “Today, people are only burning your effigies. Tomorrow, they will be after your life.”
It shows the “extreme frustration” of Amarinder and his dangerous moves and evil designs to capture power in the state, the SAD said.
SAD secretary and spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema said no one imagined that the Congress chief will think so low about their political rivals.
“This is a criminal act which cannot be approved by any right thinking individual in the state and the country,” he said.
Cheema said that the Congress party is trying to create disorder in the state by physically attacking the political opponents as well as attacking and insulting the law enforcing agencies in order to demoralise the state force.
He said that when CM has given a patience hearing to the agitating Congress workers and ordered an inquiry to be conducted by the DGP into the Ludhiana clash between Congress and Akali workers, then it was the duty of the Congress party to have waited patiently.
Since the moto of the Congress is to create disturbance in the state, they (Congress MLAs and leaders) have chosen a path of unwarranted confrontation and even threatening the senior SAD leadership, he said.
