Water cannon used on prosters in Chandigarh
Chandigarh: Equating the 11-month rule of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the State with the period of militancy in Punjab, the state BJP today protested and marched to gherao Vidhan Sabha, while lodging a protest against the “deteriorating law and order scenario in the state”. Raising questions over its report card presented in the ongoing budget session, Punjab BJP president Ashwani Sharma said “the activities of Khalistan supporters and separatists had increased manifold ever since the AAP government came to power in Punjab 11 months ago.”
Protesting BJP workers said, “The public is well aware how the law-and-order situation has deteriorated in Punjab in the past 11 months.
Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann is uttering blatant lies about law-and-order and peaceful atmosphere in the state.” Protesters added that “separatists are taking to the social media platforms to disturb the peace and harmony in the state, while the Punjab government is just a mute spectator to these activities.”
A big demonstration was held by the BJP in Chandigarh and the BJP leadership marched towards the Legislative Assembly. The police have stopped the BJP leaders on the way.
