He said the killing of Shiv Sena activist Sudhir Suri reflects the failure of the state government in handling law and order situation in a state like Punjab. "This had to happen as the entire government is busy with Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections", he observed while cautioning Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann against taking things lightly. 

Raja Warring alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal could can afford to leave his state Delhi and campaign in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, but the Punjab CM could not as the state was not so easy to govern and administer as had been proven time and again. "Punjab needs full time governance," he added. 

The PCC president said Suri, irrespective of his political opinions, was a high risk target and the government should have been more alert and careful about his security. His killing had sent a shock wave across Punjab and caused a sense of fear among people.
