Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh
CHANDIGARH: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) asked Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh to leave soldiering to the Army and to stand with the national government in sending a clear message to the Chinese that India is united in this hour of crisis.
In a statement, senior SAD leader and Rajya Sabh member Balwinder Singh Bhunder said it is very distressing to see the CM undermining the national government at a crucial juncture with statements aimed at inflaming passions and politicising an issue of national security. “Such statements create divisions and are likely to be exploited by our enemies at a time when four bravehearts from Punjab have been martyred.
This is unbecoming of any chief minister. We request you to let the Indian Army decide on the best tactical response needed to counter our adversaries on our borders,” he said.
