CHANDIGARH: SAD president Sukhbir Badal categorically held the Punjab government, especially Bhagwant Mann “squarely responsible for the murder of the innocent young boy, Shubhkaran Singh.

In a statement issued today, Sukhbir Badal questioned the CM that “Why a murder case has not been registered so far by the Punjab government for Shubhkaran’s brutal killing? Why is “Punjab da Puttar” silent on the killing of the true son of Punjabs soil by outsiders? Whose permission is Bhagwant Mann waiting for to book the guilty?” asked the SAD president.

Badal also reminded the chief minister of his own loud claims that no police personnel could open fire without the direct orders of the Chief Minister. “Time has come for you to live up to your words and book the man who alone in your opinion could have ordered the police to fire at farmers, killing a young Punjabi farmer inside your own state, ” said the former Deputy Chief Minister.

Badal said Shubhkaran’s “assassination” could have been prevented by the Chief Minister if he had listened to us and other Opposition parties who “had been crying aloud for the past six days asking Bhagwant Mann to intervene to stop the Haryana government from invading Punjab to attack our farmers on Punjab soil. Shubhkaran would still have been with us if Bhagwant Mann had not acted with stubborn arrogance.”

Badal accused the Chief Minister of playing a double-game with the farmers, pretending to be their friend while actually acting as hidden agent of the Centre & Haryana government. “Bhagwant Mann kept distracting and confusing the farmers by giving false hopes to them. He was merely providing time to the Haryana government to fortify their borders against the farmers. I am sad that the innocent farmers walked into his trap”, he added.
