Amarinder Singh cautions againstreturn of 1980s dark era in Punjab

Warning against the return of the dark era of the 1980s in Punjab, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday stated that the way things were unfolding in the state recently, reminded him of the days of the 1980s. Calling the situation ‘worrisome’, Singh further condemned the Aam Aadmi Party-led government in the state for not taking action against the accused in the murder of the Shiv Sena leader Sudhir Suri in Amritsar on Friday. “I am reminded of the 1980s when the situation started drifting and deteriorating into terrorism and we had to pay such a huge price”, the former Chief Minister warned, while cautioning the AAP government against any laxity and inaction. “What to speak of taking any action, nobody from the AAP has even condemned the brutal murder of the Shiv Sena leader so far,” he added.
Expressing his concern over the brutal murder of Shiv Sena leader Sudhir Suri, Amarinder Singh questioned how someone with high security could be shot dead in full public view with so many policemen around. “What action has the government taken?” he asked.
Indirectly pointing toward to murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, Singh said, “This is criminal negligence on part of the AAP government as it has repeatedly failed in tackling serious incidents of crime. Gangsters are also having a free run in the state and are killing people like international sports stars and singers openly.”
