Chandigarh, March 3, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
BJP National General Secretary Tarun chugh today down heavily on the Amarinder Singh government for patronising gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari evade appearance in courts in Uttar Pradesh.
In a statement Chugh said the Amarinder government was doing it to please Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
Quoting a communication from BJP MLA from Mohammadabad seat, Alka Rai, in which she accused the Congress government in Punjab of helping Mukhtar Ansari, Chugh asked the chief minister why he was trying to save this notorious criminal.
Alka Rai is the wife of MLA Krishanand Rai, who was shot dead in 2005 along with six others.
Ansari, sitting BSP MLA from Mau, is presently lodged in a Ropar jail in connection with an extortion case.
Chugh said courts in Uttar Pradesh had summoned Mukhtar Ansari but the Punjab government is not ready to send him to UP. He demanded action against the jail authorities which were hand-in-glove with Ansari in protecting him.
Chugh said the Congress proposed to use Ansari for Muslim votes in the coming UP elections but the Yogi Government wouldn’t let Congress play its game.
