With the Opposition parties cornering the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over law and order in the state, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said as compared to several Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled states, the situation in Punjab was far better.
Winding up discussion on the Governor’s address on the floor of Punjab Assembly, the CM said rather than misleading people on this issue the Congress and BJP leaders must check their facts as the states having governments of their parties were far below Punjab in law and order.
He said the state government will maintain law and order in the state and no one will be allowed to disturb its hard earned peace at any cost.
Accusing the political parties of having anti-people stance, the CM said these were the traitors who have never been loyal to the state and its people. He said the people who had signed the agreement on SYL have big resorts in Haryana whereas the other one who offered the silver spade to the then Prime Minister is today a self proclaimed ‘saviour of water’.
Mann said these people had ignored the interests of the state for their vested political interests, adding that due to this reason only they had completely rejected the people of the state.
The CM said the Aam Aadmi Party is not afraid of the misuse of the CBI and the ED by the Union government and will continue to serve the people without any fear. He said the misuse of Central agencies to muzzle the voice of democracy will not succeed.
Taking the Opposition to cudgels, Mann said those who have killed the innocent people of state through bullets by conniving with the British in pre-Independence era and then ruined the youth with drug pills in post-Independence period are now raising questions against him.
He said that these people have no moral right to question him as they are the culprits of the state. Mann said that the people of Punjab can never forgive these traitors for their anti-Punjab stance.
The CM said the traditional political parties are envious of him because they are not able to digest that the son of a common man is governing the state effectively. He said the people of the state have routed out the traditional political parties because of their anti-people and anti-Punjab stance. Mann said leaders of these parties have now ganging up with each other to mislead the people.
