Capt attacks Badals for ‘derailing’ SIT 

Faridkot, April 24

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, during his visit here on Wednesday, harped heavily on the sacrilege incidents to criticise Akalis and garner votes for Mohammad Sadiq, Congress candidate from the Faridkot Lok Sabha seat.

Addressing a rally here, the Chief Minister was also defensive on Akali and AAP’s attack on him for going back on his oath “on the Gutka” at Takht Damdama Sahib to wipe out drug menace.

“I had promised to break the backbone of the drug cartel in the state. Nabbing over 26,000 drug peddlers and sending over 4 lakh drug addicts to rehabilitation centres for their treatment in the last two years, I have rescued the state from the clutches of drugs as I had promised. There is increase of about five times in the drug prices in the state as the supply line has been cut down. This is a clear indication of drug abuse getting under control,” said the Chief Minister. 

Attacking the Badal family for using their influence to derail Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe in the sacrilege and police firing incidents at Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan, Capt Amarinder alleged that with the shifting out of IGP Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh, the Akalis had slowed down the investigation. However, once the election process was concluded, the IGP would resume investigation in the cases and take it to the logical conclusion, putting all accused behind bars, he said.

Due to his late arrival, the Chief Minister could not accompany Mohammad Sadiq for the filing of his nomination papers. “As all choppers have been booked by BJP leaders, I could not reach on time in absence of one,” said Capt Amarinder.

‘Kept my promise’

Nabbing over 26,000 drug peddlers and sending over 4 lakh drug addicts to rehabilitation centres for their treatment in the last two years, I have rescued the state from the clutches of drugs as I had promised, says Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. The drug prices have increased five times in the state as the supply line has been cut down. This is a clear indication of drug abuse getting under control, he adds.
