Press statement by Hon’ble BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda ji regarding the Congress Government’s dirty tricks during PM visit, even compromise his security
Fearing a resounding defeat at the hands of the electorate, the Congress Government in Punjab tried all possible tricks to scuttle the PM’s programmes in the state.
In doing so they did not bother that the PM was to pay tributes to Bhagat Singh and other martyrs, and lay the foundation stone for key development works in the state.
By their cheap antics, the Congress government in Punjab has shown that they are anti-development and have no respect for our great freedom fighters too.
What is extremely worrisome is that this incident was also a big security lapse as far as the PM is concerned. Protestors were given access to the Prime Minister’s route while the Punjab CS and DGP gave assurances to SPG that the route is clear.
To make matters worse, CM Channi refused to get on the phone to either address the matter or solve it.
The tactics used by the Congress government in Punjab would pain anyone who believes in democratic principles. The state police were instructed to prevent people from attending the rally. Large number of buses were stranded because of the high-handedness of the police & connivance with protestors.
It is sad that the PM’s visit to launch development projects worth thousands of crores for Punjab was disrupted. But we will not let such a cheap mentality hinder progress of Punjab and will continue the effort for the development of Punjab.
