Amarinder asks Badal to rein in police officials
Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh on Sunday asked Parkash Singh Badal, who is set to take oath as Chief Minister for the second consecutive term, to rein in state police officials accusing them of victimising Congress workers to please their political masters.
It is not even a week since this government (Akali-BJP) was re-elected but some police officials, in an over enthusiastic bid to oblige their political masters, have started harassing Congress workers, Amarinder alleged in a statement here.
The PCC chief claimed he has started receiving reports from defeated party MLAs across the state that their workers and supporters are being harassed and victimised by the Akali workers and the police.
"This is absolutely unacceptable and intolerable", he said and warned against a "Congress backlash" which can only lead to confrontation.
The former Chief Minister hoped that Badal stands by his assurance that there will be no vendetta. "His intentions should reflect in deeds and not merely in words", he said.
