06 January, 2022 –Holding the Charanjit Singh Channi government responsible for the security lapse during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Punjab, which eventually led to the cancellation of all his programmes today, former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has demanded the dismissal of the government and imposition of the President’s rule in the state.
In a statement issued here today, the former Chief Minister said, “This government has lost all moral and constitutional authority to continue in office as it has failed in its constitutional duty to provide security to the Prime Minister.”
He said, “By trying to deflect the issue and claim that it was a spontaneous protest by some people that blocked the Prime Minister’s route, the government is trying to defend the indefensible and run away from responsibility.”
“If the Prime Minister has to cancel all his programmes owing to a grave security breach, what would be the plight of an ordinary man living in Punjab?” he asked.
