Expressing concerns over the "deteriorating"law and order situation in Punjab in the backdrop of the "molestation"and death of a young girl in a bus in Moga recently, senior Congress leader and former Union minister Manish Tewari on Sunday said that there was a feeling of fear and insecurity among the people in Punjab.

In a statement, Tewari said, "Nobody is feeling safe and the unfortunate thing is that the government was not concerned at all."

He said, "What happened in Moga is the outcome of the deteriorating law and order situation as the criminals have no fear of law. Heinous crimes are being committed in Punjab with all impunity with no fear of law anywhere as the Akali-BJP alliance appears to have abdicated all the responsibility."

Tewari said that it was strange irony that while the common man is feeling scared and insecure, the criminals have no fear of law. "This is because those supposed to govern seem to have forgotten governance and public welfare and are instead focused on their own personal and vested interests,"said the former minister.

Tewari also said that the situation had reached a flashpoint and people of Punjab were feeling restive and restless.
