Jalandhar: Expressing concern over the steep increase in the rate of crime in Punjab, Jalandhar MP Choudhary Santokh Singh on Monday said that the law & order situation has stooped new low in the state and people have lost faith in the state government.
Citing the recent cases of murders including of Mata Chand Kaur of Namdhari Sect in Ludhiana, an industrialist of Jalandhar, who was shot dead in broad day light and now fierce attack on the RSS Co-Chief Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja (retd), Chaudhary said that the law & order situation was heading towards worse times than the hay days of terrorism.
The MP said that it has become more serious, as the Punjab Police has failed to track down even a single case of these heinous crimes. “I will strongly rake up this issue in the Parliament”, he said.
Training his guns on saffron party, Chaudhary said “What for BJP is waiting? If BJP would have reacted strongly against the deteriorated law & order at appropriate time, firing incident on Gagneja could have been avoided”.
“Leave apart the security of leaders of opposition parties or common man, if BJP fails to protect its own leader, how could anybody expect security from the Punjab Police, which is virtually functioning as a political tool in the hands of Akalis”, Chaudhary alleged.
“Smelling humiliating defeat in the upcoming assembly polls, SAD has frustrated to adopt cheap tactics of communal divide in the state for vertical polarisation of people on the basis of religion”, he alleged further.
Posing a query towards Akalis, Chaudhary said “CM Badal should explain that where are the culprits of sacrilege incidents of Guru Granth Sahib? What is the outcome of CBI’s probe into Bargari’s sacrilege incident and police fining in which two innocent youth lost their lives?”
