Punjab Pardesh Congress Committee media cell member Parminder Mehta today strongly condemned the Punjab bandh called on March 28 in protest against the Rajoana hanging episode.

Mehta told reporters that law should be allowed to take its own course in the Beant Singh assassination case and chief minister Parkash Singh Badal who had taken oath of the protection of the constitution recently should come forward with firm hands to safeguard the interests of the state.

He said either BJP come out from the alliance in case Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) took a stand in support of radicals or BJP merge its state unit in SAD as it had lost its voice.

He urged the union home ministry to minutely monitor the critical situation developing in the state due to dual stand of SAD and ensure normal life on bandh day. He further urged the law ministry to initiate required steps for speedy justice.
