New Delhi, January 10
Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has sparked a controversy over his statement that he had briefed party leader Priyanka Gandhi on whatever happened during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s National General Secretary Tarun Chugh on Sunday slammed Channi and said that it is unfortunate that a person holding a constitutional position is reporting to a person who has no authority over PM Modi’s security breach.
Calling Channi a shameless person, Chugh said, “He made the Prime Minister stand at a distance of just 20 km from the Pakistan border within the range of the enemy’s tanks.”
“But Channi has not responded on the matter yet,” he said.
“I am surprised that he is reporting to Priyanka Gandhi ji. I want to ask Channi sahib…who is Priyanka Gandhi ji… which constitutional post she hold? A CM is saying that he has informed Priyanka Gandhi about the people involved in the conspiracy,” the BJP leader said while hitting out at the strange administrative behavior of the chief minister.He further alleged that Congress High command is behind the conspiracy of the PM’s security breach. “The conspiracy is connected to Punjab’s Chief Minister’s residence and Congress High Command, who had given Channi a task to bring PM Modi to a place where his life will be at risk and he is reporting them,” he said. “It is unfortunate that a person holding a constitutional position is reporting to a person who has no authority. Congress has been insulting Constitutional posts from the very beginning,” he added.
