Amritsar: Terming the visit of Pakistan's Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe Pathankot terror attack as "disgusting", senior AAP leader Gurpreet Ghuggi on Tuesday said the country does not need a "certificate" from its neighbours on the authenticity of the probe conducted by Indian investigation agencies.

"It is unfortunate that the largest democracy of the world is now dependent on the JIT sent by Pakistan where the masterminds of the attacks are enjoying Nawaz Sharif's patronage, to probe Pathankot attacks," he said while addressing a gathering at Sultan village during a campaign of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

"Let Prime Minister Modi explain whether he does not have faith in the investigation by Indian agencies? Where was the need to invite Pakistan's team to probe the attacks? What, if Pakistan denies any role of its nationals in the attack?," quipped Ghuggi.

The AAP leader alleged India has already accepted its weakness and defeat against cross-border terrorism by allowing the visit of JIT.

Ghuggi charged that apart from cross-border terrorism, people of Punjab were also facing 'narcotic terrorism' under the patronage of ruling Akalis.

"I am surprised to know that drug is available in this village at every nook and corner and peddlers have no fear of police. The youth of Punjab is directionless in the absence of job opportunities which drag them deep into the drug net," he said.

He added that AAP, if voted to power in the state, would not only generate employment but also give a direction to the youth.
