Sangrur: Lashing out at the opposition for making hue and cry over the alleged deterioration of the law and order situation, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said that the state is in safe hands now and the law and order situation is completely under control.
“The social bond of people in Punjab is very strong. We live in brotherhood and those who spread hatred find no place here, ” CM said during an interaction with media persons here while campaigning for its candidate Gurmail Singh.
Asserting that all perpetrators involved in the gruesome murder of popular Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moosewala to be nabbed soon, CM Mann said that the Punjab government is gingerly investigating the case in association with central agencies and five other states.
“Opposition is baffled by the dynamic functioning of the AAP government in three months. They are trying to mislead the people of Punjab with their scurrilous claims even criminals groomed during the regime of previous governments, ” Mann said while giving a stern warning to elements trying to disturb the peace and harmony of the state.
Replying to a media query over the Agnipath scheme, CM Mann said that the BJP government is not only going to spoil the future of youth but it would also demoralise the spirit of army officials by implementing this scheme.
Stating that 3-4 months of training for youths under this scheme is not enough, Mann asked the BJP government to roll back this scheme immediately for the betterment of the country.
He said that BJP believes in rule and divides communities while AAP is a democratic party, advocating for peace and brotherhood.
Castigating the opposition for questioning the patriotism of revolutionary Bhagat Singh and other freedom fighters, Mann said that it is highly condemnable that opposition leaders are disrespecting them.
Thanking the people of Sangrur for making him MP for two terms and now CM of Punjab, Mann said that he is confident that the revolutionary people of Sangrur will once again vote for a common man and AAP’s Gurmail will win the Sangrur by-poll with a thumping majority.
CM Mann said that, unlike the opposition, AAP is fighting this election on issues including providing jobs to youth, developing schools, and hospitals, eradicating corruption and mafia to make the state again ‘Rangla Punjab’.
