He said that a few days ago a Youth Congress leader was shot dead in Tarn Taran, while a murderous attempt was made on the life of three-time MLA Rana Gurmeet Singh Sodhi.
He said instead of investigating the incidents and punishing the culprits, the state police were giving them a clean chit in so-called inquiries. "This (police probe) is just an eyewash," he said. "When Sodhi's PA suffered gunshot injuries, the police were claiming that no shots were fired."
The Congress leader said the criminal intimidation and arm-twisting of Congress workers would ultimately boomerang on the government.
