Chandigarh, November 16, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today condemned the barbaric treatment being meted out to Dalits during Congress rule even as he expressed his heartfelt sympathy at the demise of a 37 year old Dalit construction worker who passed away today after suffering a harrowing ordeal during the course of which he was beaten and even forced to drink urine.

Stating that the rule of jungle was prevailing in Punjab under the leadership of chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh, the SAD President said there were repeated cases of atrocities against Dalits and that the latest case of 37 year old Jagmail of Sangrur had stricken the conscience of every right thinking Punjabi.

“Jagmail suffered inhuman atrocities at the hands of his tormentors after being tied to a pillar, acid was poured on his legs and when he asked for water he was forced to drink urine. Jagmail died a horrible death at PGIMER, Chandigarh today after both his legs had been amputated earlier”.

Stating that there was no governance in the State, Mr Badal said it was condemnable that the chief minister had proceeded on a 14 day holiday to Europe at a time when all sections of society were suffering.

“This apathy towards the people is shocking”, the SAD President said adding the government had failed to take prompt action against Jagmail’s tormentors and that he was not provided prompt medical attention. The delay in giving treatment to Jagmail amounts to criminal negligence and action should be taken against officials responsible. “This is a direct fall out of the complete lack of interest in the affairs of the State by the chief minister”.

Mr Badal said the SAD would stand by Jagmail’s family and ensure justice was done in the case. “We will not allow such atrocities against the Dalits and other sections of the society. He also demanded that adequate compensation and a government job be given to one of Jagmail’s family members.
