Amarinder said while speaking to journalists at Zirakpur, adding that Akali Dal veteran Parkash Singh Badal was trying to divert the people’s attention from the findings of the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission, which had squarely blamed the previous (SAD-BJP) regime for the desecration of holy scriptures.On the proposed Congress rally in Mr. Badal’s home ground Lambi, Capt. Amarinder said he would expose the malicious intent of the Badals to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere in Punjab by exercising his party’s political right to hold a rally in any part of the State.Badal rallyNotably, Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal had also announced to hold a rally in Patiala — the home town of Capt. Amarinder — on the same day as the Congress rally in Lambi.Senior SAD leader Daljit Singh Cheema said that a high-level joint delegation led by Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and Punjab BJP president Shwait Malik will meet Governor V.P. Singh Badnore on Tuesday to apprise him of the alleged deteriorating law and order situation in the State.‘Petty politicking’“The situation is getting worse each day and the Congress government is busy in petty politicking. Its Ministers are busy in one-upmanship, which has left them with no time to concentrate on the problems of the State,” alleged Mr. Cheema.Mr. Cheema claimed that tension have been mounting in the State in run-up to the Zila Parishad and Panchayat Samiti elections because under the pressure of Congress leaders, several officials are discriminating against the non-Congress candidates.“The polling has already been vitiated as a large number of nominations of Akali Dal candidates have been rejected without reason,” alleged Mr. Cheema.last_img
