Punjab CM not interested in what's going on in state, Centre must intercede: Captain Amarinder Singh
Chandigarh (Punjab), February 26: Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday slammed the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the state over the Ajnala incident and urged the Centre to intervene.
"If the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government cannot handle law and order, the Centre should intervene to deal with the situation," the former CM said.
Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday said, "He (CM Bhagwant Mann) is not interested in what is going on in Punjab. He is afraid of taking any steps. Police officials may have got orders not to take any step during the Ajnala incident. The law and order has deteriorated in Punjab."
"No government can run like this, the way this government is running. The day when Ajnala incident took place, Bhagwant Mann was sitting in Mumbai with Arvind Kejriwal," he further said.

Singh also raised concerns about the internal security of the country and said, "the law and order situation in Punjab is horrible. The law and order is not the Centre's subject. If they (Punjab government) are not able to handle it then the central government will have to take charge. There are drones getting caught every single day, I think the Centre must see it."
The remarks from the former CM came days after thousands of supporters of Amritpal Singh, a Khalistan sympathizer, had on Thursday staged a massive demonstration in Amritsar to protest against the arrest of his aide Lovepreet Singh Toofan.
