Chandigarh, March 14, 2019: The Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday accused Capt. Amarinder Singh led Congress govt. for turning a blind eye to the depleting law and order situation in the state. In a press statement issued from the party headquarters, AAP state chief and Member of Parliament from Sangrur, Bhagwant Mann said that the law and order situation in the state has gone for a toss. Not a single day passes when incidents of crime taking place in various parts of the state in broad daylight are not reported.

Mann said that in the recent incident the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) district president Patiala (Rural) Chetan Singh Joumajra was attacked by some armed miscreants, firing at him from a close range, leaving him grievously injured. He said that Jormajra was attacked at a time when he tried to save a girl from the clutches of a group of goon who had reportedly waylaid her with an ulterior motive of kidnapping her. He had to be rushed to the nearby hospital in a precarious condition by bystanders, where he is undergoing treatment.

Mann said that this is not an isolated case where criminals had their way without the scantest fear of the law. Party workers and the who’s who of other walks of life, more often than not, fall prey to the crime-mongers, which is a matter of grave concern.

A delegation of Aam Aadmi Party comprising MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan, MLA Amarjeet Singh Sandoa and head of Legal cell Adv. Jastej Singh today met the Chief Electoral Officer Punjab in this regard. Addressing the media after that Sandhwan said that due to the laidback attitude of the dispensation our daughters are not safe enough to walk free. There are recurring incidents of rape, chain-snatching, stalking, modesty blaze and other misadventures and so on.

There had been a spurt in the incidents of violence in the recent past that keep pouring in from various parts of the state. More often than not, police have been found wanting when it comes to the call of duty.  Cops, more often than not, who are supposed to be the first to reach the spot of crime, land last of all. There is no denying the fact that the criminals have a free run under the protective patronage of the police.
