Senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Daljit Singh Cheema opposed Cente’s move to empowered the Border Security Force (BSF) to conduct searches, arrest suspects and make seizures up to an area of 50 km inside the Indian territory from International Border (IB) along India-Pakistan and India-Bangladesh borders.

“With this move, the center is aiming to bring the whole state of Punjab under BSF. This is clearly against the principle of federalism. The Central government wants to rule in the border state of Punjab indirectly. I strongly oppose the decision and demands its immediate withdrawal,” said Daljit Singh Cheema.
