Kapurthala: Senior Congress leader and Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjeet Singh today said that the Akalis’ dharna against the Border Security Force along the international border at different places today was an act of frustration done with a guilty conscience.
Addressing a massive dharna organised by the party against the drug trafficking by the Akalis and in support of the BSF, Rana said, it was a well established fact that the Akalis were patronising the synthetic drug trade. He said, the problem in Punjab was not due to the drugs smuggled from across the border, but the synthetic drugs produced locally in Punjab with the Akalis’ patronage.
The senior Congress leader said, now that the Akalis were exposed and cornered and facing the music from the law enforcement agencies like Enforcement Directorate, they were now trying to shift the blame on the BSF which is already doing its job well.
Rana said, the countdown of the Akali-BJP government had already started and the acts of staging dharnas by a ruling party were just the symptoms of their fears of losing power very soon.
Thousands of party workers staged a dharna condemning the Akalis attempts of maligning the image of the BSF. They were demanding the dismissal of the Akali government for this anti-national act.
