SAD expresses concern over Patiala clashes, appeals Punjabis to maintain peace and communal harmony

Chandigarh, April 29, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today while expressing grave concern at the incidents of clashes in Patiala and appealing to Punjabis to maintain peace and communal harmony at all costs, asked chief minister Bhagwant Mann to fulfill his responsibilities and immediately tackle the law and order situation which had plummeted to an all time low in the State.

Expressing shock at the manner in which the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government failed to preempt the disturbing incidents at Patiala by taking timely action, SAD senior leader Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said “this is a classic example of a complete collapse of the law and order situation.

The AAP government did not act decisively despite advance warning. Even now rather than setting its own house in order, its spokespersons are choosing to go into a blame game with the opposition. Its Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha has even shamelessly claimed that the incident was the result of a clash between the SAD and the Shiv Sena. Such cheap allegations are despicable and indicate that AAP has not learnt a lesson from the past and is ready to politicize unfortunate clashes which could again vitiate the communal atmosphere in the State”.

Dr Daljit Cheema said it was for the first time that a communal clash of this magnitude had occurred in the State. “Punjabis have always maintained communal harmony even in very trying times”. He said the situation had taken a turn for the worse because of complete administrative paralysis. “Nothing has been done to tackle the deteriorating law and order situation in the State since the last one month.

It is high time the chief minister wakes up from his slumber. He should realize that governments are not run by propaganda and sleaze campaigns against the opposition. The chief minister should go into the reasons behind the incident, including gross intelligence failure, and take immediate corrective action to instill confidence in the people who are shaken by repeated incidents of violence including murders, targeted killings and dacoities”.

The SAD leader also asked the chief minister to immediately convene a peace committee at Patiala to ensure such an incident did not occur again. “Attempts should be made to ensure genuine reconciliation amongst all persons involved”. He said simultaneously protocols should be established to ensure such flare ups did not happen in future.
