Malout (Punjab): Former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday blamed the Charanjit Singh Channi-led Punjab Government for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "security breach" when the latter was on his way to Ferozepur for a rally on Wednesday.

Parkash Singh Badal said, "Today's government is incompetent. Even when a bomb exploded in Punjab, they were fighting among themselves. Each and everybody was giving different statements. Navjot Singh Sidhu was giving his own statement. Even in a game, when you don't work as a team, you can never win. We see there is no teamwork in the Congress. They don't want to see each other. What can they give to Punjab in this situation?"

"See, like a coin, it is also having two sides of the same story. Here there are two-three sides. Firstly, there should be no obstacle during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit. Secondly, there was no gathering at the spot. It should have been there in any of the PM visits. Apart from that, the people don't want this party, because they have not done good to the farmers," said former Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal.

When asked about the PM security, he said every state had its own different government. In a state where the PM visits, it was the responsibility of the state to ensure the safety of the Prime Minister. "Even the Chief Minister has to receive the PM," added the former CM.

On the Governor rule in Punjab, Parkash Singh Badal said they had asked for a report. Let's see, he added.
