Amarinder Singh On PM’s Security Violation: CM Channi, Randhawa, And Sidhu “Confuse Lot”

Amarinder Singh mocked Deputy Chief Minister Randhawa for claiming that central security agencies should have assured the Prime Minister’s safe passage.
Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh criticised the state government’s top leadership and the ruling Congress of making reckless statements about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security breach and acting in uncertainty rather than taking responsibility on Friday. Singh singled out Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, and state Congress president Novjot Singh Sidhu, describing them as “confused.”

Amarinder Singh said in a statement that Channi, Randhawa, and Sidhu are acting like a befuddled bunch who have no idea how to do their jobs or perform their obligations. Rather of accepting responsibility, they have all shied away from it.

Are avoiding it and passing it on to their juniors, which is cowardice and not true leadership, according to the former Punjab chief minister

He also told Sidhu not to discuss subjects about which he claimed he was unaware. Amarinder Singh, referring to Channi’s muddled and inconsistent claims on the security breach, said, “In the morning he says something and orders an inquiry, but by the evening he straightaway denies that anything happened.” He also mocked Chief Minister Channi’s juvenile declaration that if the Prime Minister’s life was threatened, he would take bullets in his chest. You are not there to take bullets to the chest; instead, concentrate on your work as chief minister, advised Amarinder Singh.

The former CM also mocked the state Home Minister, Deputy CM Randhawa, for claiming that central security agencies should have assured the Prime Minister’s safe transit. The deputy CM appeared to be unaware that the Prime Minister was in Punjab, and that it was the Punjab government’s responsibility to provide all kinds of protection, as he pointed out.

You (Randhawa) were recently crying hysterically against the BSF’s expansion of jurisdiction in Punjab’s border districts, claiming that law and order is a state matter, despite the fact that it had nothing to do with law and order, Amarinder Singh reminded Randhawa.

“Listen to the prudent counsel of their own party president Sonia Gandhi, who has ordered the Chief Minister to probe the problem and identify the responsibility,” Amarinder Singh also counselled the Congress leaders. He remarked, “Now, I imagine, you’ll say, even Ms Gandhi is attempting to stand with Prime Minister Modi.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convoy was stranded on a flyover in Ferozepur on Wednesday due to a “serious security lapse” when some protesting farmers stopped the route, forcing him to return from poll-bound Punjab without attending any event, including a rally.

The Union Home Ministry has asked the state government for an explanation as soon as possible.

The PM’s security lapse, he claims, was due to a failure to achieve the required deployment. Home Minister Amit Shah has also stated that such a breach of security during the prime minister’s visit is unacceptable, and that accountability will be established.
