"It is the government's responsibility to keep the state in order. Terrorism has previously wreaked havoc on Punjab, and the people of Punjab do not want such a situation to recur."

The former Punjab Chief Minister further said that "everyone knows that Pakistan is spreading terrorism in Punjab."

"Every day, drones are sent from Pakistan. Drones used to come even while I was the CM, but I took action on the matter. However, more drones are now entering Punjab to smuggle weapons and drugs. It is dangerous to the state," he added.
