Chandigarh, June 5, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
Reacting sharply to the opposition’s claims, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday said that no clean chit has been given to any political party or persons in the Behbal Kalan firing and desecration incidents.
Addressing a press conference here, AAP’s chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang said that the investigation is underway and those are claiming to get a clean chit in these cases, strict action would be taken against them if found guilty during the investigation.
Accusing former SAD and Congress governments of shielding perpetrators of Behbal Kalan firing and desecration incidents, Kang said that justice was delayed in these wicked acts due to match-fixing of both the parties.
He said that following strenuous efforts under Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s government, Advocate General (AG) gingerly pursued the case and Punjab and Haryana High Court dismissed a bunch of petitions seeking the quashing of FIR and Investigation conducted into the Behbal Kalan firing.
He said that as a result of the challan presented by AG against political leaders and senior officials, the case was quashed by the High Court. It shows the firm commitment of the AAP government to bring the guilty to book and deliver justice to ‘Sikh Sangats’ and Punjabis.
Kang said that while the desecration of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and firing on innocent protestors took place during the SAD regime while Congress-led by former Chief Ministers Captain Amarinder Singh Charanjit Singh Channi had failed to defend the investigation into the Kotkapura desecration incidents.
However, AAP is not here to gain political mileage over this serious issue and justice will be delivered to the people of Punjab in the Behbal Kalan firing case and Guru Granth Sahib ‘Saroops’ stolen incidents and others matters soon, Kang added.
Reiterating his government’s firm commitment, Kang said that the AAP government has been working painstakingly for the welfare of Punjabis and the government will deliver strict punishment to all accused in these cases as per the law soon.
