The two PSOs attached to the MLA have also come under the Chief Minister’s scanner for evidently failing to protect him. They have been transferred to the Police Lines and the Chief Minister has directed the DGP to investigate their role in the entire episode. Besides Amarjit, his gunman Head Constable Sukhdeep Singh was also injured in the attack which reportedly took place on Thursday afternoon, said the spokesperson.

CAPTAIN GOVT. FAILED TO REIGN IN MINING MAFIA ALLEGES KHAIRA, SUMMON MLAs MEETING

LoP Khaira in a hard hitting statement released here today, castigated Capt. Amarinder Singh for his failure to reign in mining mafia in the state. He said that the attack on the MLA has totally exposed Capt. Amarinder Singh for his failure to control illegal mining in the state and it also shows that there is no rule of law in the state. Khaira said if a MLA who has been provided security by the government can be attacked in broadaylight, one can imagine the plight of ordinary people or even officials who are facing the wrath of this mafia across the state. 

 
 Khaira said the other day mining mafia beat up forest officials in Kharar but the police acted like a mute spectator, although local MLA Kanwar Sandhu had brought this incident to the notice of Mohali administration. Khaira said  it is a litmus test of impartiality of Capt. Amarinder Singh as Chief Minister, whether the government and police is here only to protect Congress leaders and workers or they can ensure safety to the life and liberty of opposition leaders and ordinary citizens. Khaira reminded the CM that he was very quick to act when a youth Congress leader of Dhuri was beaten up a couple of days back, where the SHO was suspended within the hours but will the CM now ensure strict action against the mining mafia goons who attacked elected representative?  

Khaira demanded immediate registration of FIR under criminal sections, arrest of the guilty and also criminal action against those who abetting this goondaism. Khaira said that illegal mining in the state is not taking in place without active and tacit support of Congress leaders because of which Capt. Amarinder Singh took no action on the six illegal mining khuds of Nawanshahar tweeted by him from his helicopter. Capt. Amarinder Singh pushed the matter below the carpet because all the said six khuds were connected to the Congress leaders. Khaira said that he had called an emergency meeting of AAP MLA’s today to discuss the further course of action on the sensational matter.

ATTACKS ON MLA,FOREST OFFICERSA TELLING COMMENT ON LAW AND ORDER SITUATION:CHUGH 

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today said that the recent attacks on Forest Officers followed by attack on a MLA and the cops guarding him by mafia were a telling comment on the law and order situation in Punjab. 

BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh said that the daylight attacks have exposed Congress Government’s patronage to the sand mafia. He said only the Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues could explain why the mafia was being allowed to run its riot.  

The attack on AAP MLA Amarjit Singh Sandoa and his security personnel has raised serious questions on government’s failure to protect even the lawmakers from the terror posed by the mafia which is enjoying a free run as the state was providing cover to  it for the reasons known to people of Punjab, by now. The BJP leader said while the Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh was claiming that his government has crushed the sand mafia, the unscrupulous elements were challenging his claims with a series of attacks on whosoever comes in their way. 
“The mafia in Punjab has become so powerful that it was challenging the might of Police and the political authority of the government indicating that it wields more power than the state. This turn of events is very dangerous for the state,” Chugh said. Chugh asked Capt Amarinder Singh, Navjot Sidhu, Manpreet Badal and PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar to tell people of Punjab as to who was supporting mafia to take on the power of the state.

 “People want to know who was the force behind this mafia and what prevents Congress Government from acting against it,” he asked.Chugh asked why the mining policy studied and recommended by Navjot Sidhu after his visit to Hyderabad was not implemented. The government must tell why the policy was rejected, he said.
