Jalandhar: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi would be leading party’s dharna to be staged here on June 13 against the scourge of drugs and the deteriorating law and order situation in Punjab.
Disclosing this here on Friday, Punjab Congress vice president and Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjeet Singh, who is in charge of the programme, said on the request of the Punjab Congress President Capt Amarinder Singh, Rahul agreed to participate in the dharna against the drugs and deteriorating law and order situation in Punjab.
Rana said that the Gandhi Scion has been consistently raising the issue of drugs in Punjab. He pointed out, when Rahul raised the issue of drugs in Punjab in 2012, the Akalis accused him of maligning Punjabi youth. However, the situation, he said, has gone from bad to worse as Akalis never bothered to solve the problem.
The PCC vice president said that besides Rahul all the senior party leaders from the state and workers would participate in the dharna. He said, the eradication of drugs from Punjab is the top priority of the Congress party and the current programme was being held in that connection only.
