Punjab Congress condemns Suri’s murder, says PPCC president, complete breakdown of law and order | Tech Reddy
CHANDIGARH: Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring has strongly condemned the killing of Shiv Sena leader Sudhir Suri in Amritsar today.
At the same time he appealed for peace and harmony and urged the people to defeat the nefarious designs of the enemies of Punjab.
“There is a complete collapse of law and order in the state and the culprits are choosing and killing their targets with such ease and convenience,” the CPC president said in a statement today.
He said, the killing reflects the failure of the government in managing the law and order situation in a state like Punjab. “This had to happen as the entire government is busy with the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections,” he observed while warning Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann not to take things lightly.
Warring said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal can afford to leave his state Delhi and live in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh but Punjab CM cannot as Punjab is not so easy to govern and administer as ‘and it has been proven over and over again. Punjab needs a full-time government, he remarked.
The PCC president said, Suri, regardless of his political views, was a high-risk target and the government should be more careful and attentive to his security. He said, his killing sent a shock wave across Punjab and caused a sense of fear among people.
He warned that Punjab cannot afford to allow the situation to slip into the dark era once again. “We have saved Punjab after so many sacrifices of people and it is our duty to preserve that hard-earned peace,” he said, while appealing for unity and harmony and above partisan politics.
