Capt Lashes Out At DGP Saini For Shameless Self-Praise

CHANDIGARH – Former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh lashed out at state police chief Sumedh Singh Saini for his “shameless self-praise when he should have felt sorry and apologised to the people of Punjab for failing to hold free and fair poll to the Zila Parishads and Block Samitis.”

The former Chief Minister blasted the police theory on the assault on Congress MLA from Guruharsahai Rana Gurjit Sodhi and his personal assistant. “The police is shamelessly trying to cover up when everything is only too obvious”.

Debunking the police claims of peaceful elections, Capt Amarinder said if that was so, newspapers and television channels showing violence, particularly in the Chief Minister’s constituency, were lying.

“It is disgustingly shameful on the part of DGP Saini to parrot what he has been preached by his political bosses,” he said. Rather, the police should apologise to the people for the poll violence, he said.

“The very claim of the police that it had controlled everything up to the booth level is an admission that the elections were rigged and that is what precisely the Congress has been saying,” said Amarinder.
