Facing heat over his Kartarpur corridor remark, Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta has offered regret.

Gupta, who came under huge criticism following his remark which was construed as anti-Sikh statement and also termed as ‘hate speech’ against the Sikh community, Sunday took to Twitter to offer his regret.

Gupta Tweeted Sunday evening his regret in the following form:

“In case any remark made by me has inadvertently caused any hurt to the people of my state, I express my sincere regret as it was never my intention at all. I only want to ensure a safe & peaceful environment in Punjab necessary for every citizen to flourish and prosper.”

It may be recalled that Gupta, while speaking at Indian Express Idea Exchange at Panchkula talking in context to visit of Sikh devotees to Kartarpur Corridor had made certain remarks which when published by the Indian Express had angered and annoyed Sikh community.

Gupta’s remarks were not only criticized but also challenged by SAD, SGPC, DSGMC, AAP, Lok Insaaf Party, SAD Taksali and several other organizations and leaders.

It remains to be seen whether the regret offered by the DGP would be accepted and the issue gets buried as SAD, AAP and LIP have announced to take up the issue in the Budget Session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha.
