Kejriwal helping forces wanting to disturb Punjab peace: Rahul
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said many anti-national forces were raising their ugly head and we must prevent the state and country from such forces. On the last day of the poll campaign in Punjab, Rahul addressed a gathering in Ballian village here and referred to the Tuesday night’s car explosion in Maur Mandi, which left six dead.
Launching an all-out attack against Arvind Kejriwal in the backdrop of the Maur Mandi blast, Rahul accused him of “helping” forces who want to disturb Punjab’s peace and push it back to the dark days of militancy.
The blast had occurred shortly after the “jansabha” of Congress candidate Harminder Singh Jassi, who is contesting the February 4 elections from Maur Assembly seat. Talking about drugs, Rahul said ‘chitta’ had destroyed Punjab and their party on assuming power would end the problem of drugs.
He said the Congress would arrest all smugglers of drugs and confiscate their properties. Rahul said they would clear all backlog of jobs and improve health facilities. He said the Congress would take effective steps to maintain law and order. He urged voters not to switch from “one radical party to another”.
“The most important thing is the atmosphere you live in. If that atmosphere gets spoiled, violence starts or anger prevails, then the work of farmers, labourers, weaker sections suffers, entire state suffers,” Rahul said.
