BJP hits out at AAP govt over 'deteriorating' law and order situation in Punjab
Bathinda (Punjab), January 15: BJP state president Ashwani Sharma on Sunday slammed the Aam Aadmi Party-led government in Punjab, saying the law and order situation in the state is 'deteriorating'.
"There is no such thing as a government in Punjab. The government is just sitting on its hands, the law and order have completely collapsed and extortion, murder, and looting are common in Punjab now," Sharma said. Talking about the 2024 General Election, the BJP leader stated that the party would contest the election on its own.
He also accused the Congress party, whose Bharat Jodo Yatra is currently in Punjab, of "dividing" the country.
"Punjab has not forgotten 1984, Gandhi family had divided the country. Today the same Gandhi family is talking about Bharat Jodo. Till now, the Gandhi family has not apologized for the 1984 riots," Sharma added.
Notably, Congress leader Rahul Gandh-led Bharat Jodo Yatra resumed on Saturday morning from Ladowal in Punjab.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began on September 7 in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, will conclude on January 30 in Srinagar, with Rahul hoisting the Tricolour.
The march has already passed through Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and is now in Haryana.
