Expressing grave concern over the targeted killing by gangsters in the state, Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring today said that there was an atmosphere of fear and terror prevailing here and people were feeling unsafe and insecure and they had even started moving out.

Addressing a press conference here today, Warring referred to several killings by the gangsters after the victims refused and resisted to pay ransom money to them. This, he said, had never happened in Punjab where gangsters were ruling the roost.

He said, the level of fear among people was so much that they had started moving out of the state including out of the country. He said, applications for passports and renewals from Punjab were highest and people were trying to leave, as was the state of affairs here.

The PCC president blamed the failure of the Aam Aadmi Party government to set its priority right. He said the AAP had wasted Punjab’s resources in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and despite that it had been rejected in both the states. “What happened to AAP’s Delhi and Punjab model in Himachal and Gujarat?” he taunted the AAP leadership.

He gave details of the huge money spent by the Punjab’s AAP government for Gujarat elections. “Despite that they were rejected there as people did not buy into their deceit”, he said, while adding, the AAP model stands rejected everywhere.

He reiterated his allegation that AAP and Arvind Kejriwal were working for the BJP. He alleged that AAP deliberately worked in Gujarat to divide the anti-incumbency vote in the state. He pointed out, with no AAP in Himachal Congress swept the state.

He said, Himachal will mark the fresh beginning for the Congress and this performance will be followed up in states like Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan also.

The PCC president condemned the demolition of residential houses in Jalandhar without any prior notice to the house owners. He said, even if there were some court directions, the government could have helped the house occupants with legal remedies instead of rendering them homeless.

Replying to a question on GST raids on small shopkeepers, he said, it was quite an irony that while the government was splurging crores of Punjab’s rupees on advertisements in Gujarat and on chartered flights, it was harassing small traders with GST raids which had never happened till now in Punjab.
