Amarinder accuses PM of bias on religious matters


Amarinder accuses PM of bias on religious matters

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 15

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of discrimination against the Congress government in Punjab in matters of religious importance as part of his party’s divisive agenda. Modi had on Sunday targeted him during a speech at Kathua.

He questioned why the PM had not pointed fingers at Akali leaders for failing to attend the Union Government’s function to commemorate the centenary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

“Neither Parkash Singh Badal, nor Sukhbir, nor Harsimrat, who happens to be a minister in Modi’s own Cabinet, deemed it fit to pay homage to martyrs at Jallianwala Bagh,” said the CM. “Yet Modi, who himself chose to keep away from this occasion of national importance, criticised me even though I was part of a series of events at the Jallianwala Bagh memorial over two days,” he said.

“Why was Modi not present at this major event? Why did the Badals fail to turn up? And why did the PM choose to conveniently ignore their absence?” he asked

Capt Amarinder said, “By holding a parallel event to mark the Jallianwala Bagh centenary instead of supporting the state government’s commemorative programmes, the Prime Minister exposed his true intent.”
