Amarinder Singh hits out at Pragat Singh says his accusations surrounding BSF are ridiculous

Chandigarh: Punjab former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh hit out at a minister in the new state cabinet and a close aide of state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, Pragat Singh saying that his accusations surrounding the BSF controversy were “ridiculous stories for cheap publicity”.

Captain also targeted Punjab Congress Chief (PCC) Navjot Singh Sidhu.

The comment followed a charge by Pargat Singh over the centre’s move to expand powers of the Border Security Force or BSF up to 50 km from the border that has triggered a major row since it spills over into the state government’s jurisdiction.

“I’ve always said Captain is with BJP only. Earlier he went to Delhi to make delay in paddy procurement and now this… If you’re deploying BSF in Punjab it shows your motive to impose governor rule,” Pargat Singh told news agency ANI.

The accusation came after Captain Amarinder Singh appeared to welcome the centre’s decision, saying that the enhanced presence of the BSF will make Punjab stronger. He added that the central armed forces should not be dragged into politics.
