Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for their provocative and inflammatory actions, aimed at disturbing the state’s law and order, in the wake of the attack on Ashwani Sharma’s motorcade, for which the police has already identified several farmer union members as being responsible.
Slamming Sharma’s rabble-rousing statements and baseless accusations against the Punjab Congress, the Chief Minister said the BJP Punjab unit president seemed bent on spreading false propaganda to promote the interests of his party. These actions were clearly aimed at diverting the attention of the people from the farmers’ angst against the BJP over the Farm Laws, he said.
A criminal case under relevant sections of law has been registered against the protestors on the statement of ASI Hari Singh, PSO of Shri. Ashwani Sharma u/s 341, 427, 148, 149, 120 B IPC, 8 B of The National Highways Act 1956 and investigations are in progress.
The DGP further disclosed that Sharma had, in fact, planned a Party conclave of the senior BJP office bearers at Vijay Resorts, Jalandhar, on 12.10.20. Around 100 aggressive Kisan leaders and workers of different Kisan Unions from Jalandhar and Kapurthala suddenly gathered there and wanted to force their way into the venue.
