Capt, Kejriwal in war of words
Chandigarh, October 14
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday lashed out at his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal, asking him to refrain from “doing politics” on the issue of sacrilege and police firing incidents in Faridkot in 2015.
Capt Amarinder chided Kejriwal after the latter accused the Congress-led Punjab government of “failing” to punish those responsible for the sacrilege of the Sikh holy book and deaths of two persons in the alleged police firing at Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan.
“Stop politicking @ArvindKejriwal. It’s shocking a man in your position talks of subverting law instead of waiting for SIT’s findings,” the CM tweeted. The Punjab government had set up a five-member SIT to probe the police firing incidents.
Two persons were killed in the alleged police firing at protesters at Behbal Kalan following sacrilege incidents in 2015. Earlier in the day, Kejriwal alleged that the state had “badly failed” in punishing the culprits of sacrilege and police firing.
“On the third death anniversary of Behbal Kalan victims Krishan Bhagwan Singh & Gurjit Singh, I offer condolences to their families. Highly unfortunate that @capt_amarinder govt has badly failed to punish the culprits of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and the murderers of two innocents,” Kejriwal tweeted.
