Ludhiana District Court explosion: Akali Dal attacks congressional government over public order situation
Sukhbir Singh Badal also urged everyone to unite and support Akali Dal, saying the attacks on Punjab have started.
Opposition Shiromani Akali Dal today criticized the Congressional government in Punjab after an explosion rocked the Ludhiana District Court. Shiromani Akali Dal Chairman Sukhbir Singh Badal said the government led by CM Charanjit Singh Channi values the vendetta policy on maintaining public order in the state. At least two people died in today’s blast while several others were reportedly injured. The explosion took place on the second floor near courtroom number 14.
“For the past two or three months, the Punjab police, from the DGP down to the lower level, have been given a task and are working eight hours a day to build cases against Majithia and the Badal family. They have no other job. What is happening today? Dacaotis are taking place, rapes are taking place, see today there was an explosion inside a courthouse. When justice is not certain, what can be said about me. The police were removed from their original jobs and deployed for a political vendetta. I mean to the DGP that the political vendetta is not your job, your job is to maintain public order. You don’t. I strongly condemn it and I want to say that this government is a complete failure. The many days he reigns will hurt Punjab, ”Badal said in Punjabi speaking to the media.
The SAD chairman was referring to the drug case in which the name of SAD MP Bikram Singh Majithia popped up. He went into hiding and the Interior Ministry issued a watch against Majithia at the request of the Punjab police.
Sukhbir Singh Badal also urged everyone to unite and support Akali Dal, saying the attacks on Punjab have started. Sukhbir Singh Badal has also excluded the candidacy of Harsimrat Kaur Badal in the legislative elections in Punjab.
