Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh has also condemned the attack on the Ludhiana RSS leader.
“We may not agree with the ideology of the RSS but that does not mean anybody can target its activists or create a sense of fear,” said Amarinder, in a statement calling for peace and harmony, and issued here on Monday.
He said that those responsible should be identified and punished, as “Punjab cannot afford the repeat of the dark days of 1980s.”
He also condemned the ink attack on Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, which had come at a function in New Delhi on Sunday. “It is highly condemnable and unacceptable in a democracy, and no way to settle a difference of opinion,” he stated, adding: “Whether you hurl a shoe or smear ink on someone, it is a sign of intolerance, which should not be encouraged.”
