Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday demanded “immediate” resignation of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal over Nabha jailbreak in which six prisoners, including Khalistan Liberation Front chief Harminder Mintoo, escaped.
Blaming Punjab police for killing a woman, he tweeted, “Punjab Home Minister shud immediately resign taking responsibility of jail break and killing of innocent girl by Punjab police.”
“This shows complete breakdown of law• order in Punjab,” Kejriwal said in another tweet attacking Sukhbir who also holds the portfolio of the home minister of the state.
Meanwhile, AAP national spokesperson Sanjay Singh demanded resignations of jail minister Sohan Singh Thandal and the Deputy Chief Minister.
Sukhbir has no “moral right” to keep the portfolio of the Punjab home minister “even for a day” because under him the state is being “pushed toward anarchy”, he said.
“Be it attack on a religious preacher, murder of Mata Chand Kaur of Namdhari Sect, series of sacrilege incidents, the drug haul in Punjab, murder of RSS ideologue or the jailbreak, he has completely failed as the home minister,” Singh said.
On Sukhbir alleging that Pakistan “could be behind the jailbreak”, the AAP leader said, “If he is right that Pakistan was indeed behind Nabha jailbreak, then Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh should also quit for failing to protect the international
Slamming Sukhbir, AAP Punjab convener Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi alleged, “He does not think twice before blaming Pakistan for the ills of Punjab. Every time he constitutes a Special Investigation Team and puts the issue under the carpet. They have yielded no results so far.”
