Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder today slammed Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal for "shedding crocodile tears" over the death of senior RSS leader Jagdish Gagneja.
Reacting to Badal's allegations that Congress was playing politics over Gagneja's death, Amarinder asked him as with what face he had gone to meet Gagneja's family and condole his death when they were still awaiting justice as none of the culprits had even been identified so far, leave aside arrested.
"One and a half month has passed and you continue to remain clueless about the culprits and still you have the audacity to blame us for playing politics when we are asking the genuine questions", he said.
Calling Badal's bluff, Amarinder asked why no action had been taken against the culprits responsible for murderous attack on Sant Ranjit Singh Dhadarianwale as everybody knew who was responsible.
"When you are shielding the mastermind of the attack, how can you deny our charges of your involvement in all these incidents?" he asked, while adding "everybody knows that you wanted to silence the Sants who were exposing you for your involvement in the Bargadi sacrilege".
The PCC president alleged that Badal h ad a purpose in
all this to create a sense of fear among people.
"Whether it was the sacrilege in Bargadi, Malerkotla or Ludhiana or the attack on Sant Dhadarianwale and the killing of Brig Gagneja and Namdhari Mata Chand Kaur, every probe and investigation will lead to Badal", he alleged.
