Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

chief today wrote to Union Home Minister demanding dismissal of the Parkash Singh Badal-led Akali-and a probe into the sensational jailbreak in Nabha in which six dreaded criminals escaped.

Blaming the Akali in for Sunday's Nabha jailbreak, the former Chief Minister accused the Badals of trying to polarise the state on communal lines ahead of the Assembly polls, just as they had always done when faced with defeat.



Alleging an Akali hand in Sunday's Nabha jailbreak, he claimed that "Akalis are involved in this with the intention of provoking tension and polarising the state ahead of the assembly polls."

Amarinder said he has written to the Home Minister and the Chief Commissioner demanding dismissal of the Badal and immediate imposition of the in the state.

He also demanded a probe into the incident, saying a fair investigation would not be possible under the Police.

The leader said that the four gangsters who had escaped along with the Khalistani terrorist from jail belonged to Muktsar and Jalalabad area from which the Badals hailed.

Amarinder also warned that the SYL issue had the potential of escalating into an explosive situation, which could even trigger the revival of terrorism in Punjab.

Warning that the entire belt from Sardulgarh to Abhor would go dry if the Supreme Court verdict on SYL is implemented, he said any move to deprive the people of the state of the much-needed river water could lead to the outbreak of violence, culminating in disastrous consequences for Punjab.

Stating that the earlier outbreak of terrorist violence in had arisen from the Anandpur Sahib resolution, with water the main issue of dispute, Amarinder claimed 35,000 people had been killed earlier.

Amarinder said the Supreme Court should have first assessed the quantum of water available with before coming out with its verdict, and stressed that Haryana had no riparian right to Sutlej or Ravi water. He noted that had never staked claim to Yamuna river water, which it could easily have done.

In a separate communication, Amarinder has also written to Chief Commissioner Nasim Zaidi urging imposition of the Code of Conduct without further delay and holding of the Assembly elections under President's Rule.

In his letter to the Home minister, the chief said that going by the trend of the incumbent in the state, "with the elections coming close and with their chances of winning very meagre, they would try to resort to polarisation of communities".
