Sampla asks CM Amarinder to Focus on Governance not Publicity
Stop browbeating elected representatives: Sampla
Union Minister and Punjab Bharatiya Janata Party president Vijay Sampla today accused the ruling Capt. Amarinder Singh government of unleashing political vendetta against the SAD-BJP, adding that the gang war in Kapurthala Jail followed by jailbreak attempt in Gurdaspur was an inkling of what was to come in the days to come.
Sampla said, “Maintaining law & order doesn’t seem to be a priority of Punjab government and it is busy resorting to vendetta politics.”
Citing incidents where Congress leaders had tried to forcibly take control of cash-rich Truck Unions at gun point, the murder of SAD worker Gurbachan Singh Khalsa by Congress activist Col. (retd) Surjit Singh in Ferochichi village in Amritsar, and several other incidents of Congress leaders browbeating the SAD-BJP workers, Sampla said that Capt. Amarinder Singh’s government had failed to rein in the Congress’ Goons.
Complaints of newly elected Congress MLAs trying to wrest control of municipalities or panchayats ruled by SAD-BJP alliance by intimidating the elected representatives are pouring in from all over Punjab and BJP will not be mute spectator to it and hit streets warned Sampla.
Lambasting the Chief Minister, Sampla said, “Instead of focusing on good governance and devoting time to improve the deteriorating Law and Order situation in Punjab, Capt. Amarinder Singh is busy hogging the limelight by taking news-oriented token decisions and giving interviews to various channels and news dailies”.
Cautioning that it was unbecoming of a Chief Minister, Sampla asked Capt. Amarinder to instead focus on the poll promises which he had made in his poll manifesto.
