PPCC chief Jakhar ridicules AAP’s demand for deploying Punjab Police at Delhi borders

Ridiculing the demand of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for deployment of Punjab Police to protect the agitating farmers at the borders of the national capital, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee chief, Sunil Jakhar, on Saturday said even the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) cannot enter a state without permission, and added that, in any case, “Congress was not running an anarchist government in Punjab like Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi, where street politics by the ruling party had long replaced real governance.”

The PPCC Chief was reacting to AAP spokesman Raghav Chadha’s statement asking that Punjab Police be positioned at the Delhi borders for the safety and security of farmers from attacks by alleged BJP goons, who he said had the protection of Delhi Police.

“Don’t you know anything about the principles and rules of police jurisdiction?,” the PPCC chief remarked, asking Chadha to stop making a mockery of the sensitive and grave situation prevailing in the national capital with his frivolous and senseless statements. “How can a state police force enter Delhi or any other state, when even a central agency like CBI has no such authority or jurisdiction?” asked Jakhar. Unlike the AAP government in Delhi, which clearly had no scruples about trampling the law in favour of political theatrics and drama, the Congress  government in Punjab believed in following the rule of the law, he added.

Further taking a dig at the AAP leader, Jakhar asked “why doesn’t your AAP government in the capital send out the Delhi Home Guards, who report directly to the state government, to protect the farmers sitting at your doorstep?” “And with 66 MLAs spread around the city, why don’t you help out the farmers instead of wasting your time giving advice to Punjab government,” he further quipped.

Trashing Chadha’s comments on the protection provided by Punjab Police to various leaders etc, Jakhar asked the AAP spokesperson if he knew more about individual threat perceptions in Punjab than the Chief Minister or his government. “Why don’t you leave the job of running Punjab to us while you concentrate on managing the situation in Delhi, where all the problem is happening?”

The PPCC chief also lashed out at the AAP leader on Chief Minister Captain, Amarinder Singh’s Pakistan remarks, warning against ignoring or undermining the Pak threat in Punjab. “Either you are completely ignorant about the situation on the ground in Punjab, which you are dreaming of ruling, or you are deliberately choosing to play it down,” he said, in response to the AAP allegation that the Chief Minister was trying to protect the BJP by linking Pakistan to the Red Fort attack.  Pointing out that it was not just BJP supporters but also AAP members (like Amrik Micky) who were seen inciting the violence at Red Fort, he asked Chadha “does that means the Chief Minister is also trying to save your AAP?” Jakhar said, “who knows if Deep Sidhu or Amrik Micky or both weren’t working on the bidding of Pakistan’s ISI”.

Chadha is speaking nonsense, with no logic to his banter, said Jakhar. Everyone knows who is toeing the BJP line, he added, pointing to the quick implementation of one of the Farm Laws in Delhi by the Kejriwal government.
