IEP Chandigarh, October 3
Punjab Information and Public Relations Minister Mr. Aman Arora on Monday cornered Congress MLAs including Leader of Opposition for acting as a ‘B’ team of BJP, which has launched ‘Operation Lotus’ to topple the Aam Aadmi Party Government in Punjab and creating ruckus during the proceedings of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha Session.
Congress should introspect before pointing finger at Chief Minister S Bhagwant Mann led Punjab Government, said the Cabinet Minister, while adding that strict actions are being taken against culprits indulging in anti-social activities within no time.
Replying to LoP Partap Singh Bajwa over law and order situation in Punjab, Mr. Aman Arora said that the CM Bhagwant Mann led Punjab Government has been trying to improve law and order situation, which had deteriorated during the previous governments.
Reminding the opposition about the mess they had created during their party regime in Punjab, Mr. Aman Arora said that numerous target killings including Gurdeep Pehalwan, Mahinderpal Bittu, two ASIs, Comrade Balwinder Singh, Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja and Mata Chand Kaur had taken place during the tenure of Congress and SAD-BJP governments. “Wasn’t the law and order situation the worst during your government,” questioned Mr Aman Arora, while adding that the law and order situation had not deteriorated in the blink of an eye. “We are cleaning the mess created by the previous governments,” he added.
On the escape of Gangster Lawrance Bishnoi’s accomplice Deepak Tinu, who is an accused in Sidhu Moosewala murder case, the Cabinet Minister said that Mann Government had immediately issued lookout circular and ordered to launch a manhunt to nab the escapee, while, the errant Mansa CIA Staff Incharge Pritpal Singh has been dismissed and arrested promptly. “Unlike previous governments, prompt action is being ensured now,” said the Minister.
