New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at Charanjit Singh Channi led government Punjab over “internal disputes” and said that Punjab needs a strong and actionable government.
Criticizing the series of incident that occurred in Punjab and demanded strict action against those purposefully disturbing the peace of Punjab.
Addressing the media, Mr Kejriwal said, “Channi government is a very weak government. They have internal disputes. Today, Punjab needs a strong and actionable government.”
“First sacrilege and now this blast in Ludhiana, that too before polls are seemingly a conspiracy to disturb the peace. Some people are deliberately doing it. They should be strictly punished. I appeal to people of Punjab not to let such minds succeed,’ he added.
Further lashing out on the state government, the AAP convenor said, “The person who attempted to desecrate Guru Granth Sahib could have been sent by someone. It’s food for thought…Unless the state government is not honest, committed, such incidents will recur.”
AAP will give a strong government in Punjab and punish masterminds behind such crimes,” Mr Kejriwal promised.
“Channi government is a very weak government. They have internal disputes. Today, Punjab needs a strong and actionable government.”
On Thursday, an explosion was reported from a district court complex of Ludhiana, killing one and leaving at least five people injured.
The explosion came after two alleged incidents of sacrilege were reported in the poll-bound state. A man was lynched on Saturday after an alleged attempt to commit sacrilege inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Golden Temple.
The man reportedly jumped the golden grills inside the sanctum sanctorum and picked a sword and reached the place where a Sikh priest was reciting the holy Guru Granth Sahib.
Another incident was reported from Kapurthala, where an unidentified man was lynched at a gurdwara over an alleged sacrilege. However, the police said, there was “no visible sign” of sacrilege and it appeared the man wanted to commit theft at the gurdwara.
