Slamming the SAD-BJP government in the state for its failure to prevent the terrorist attack on Pathankot airbase, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab incharge Sanjay Singh alleged that there was a nexus between Akali leaders and drug peddlers that was responsible for the attack.

“Contradictory statements of superintendent of police Salwinder Singh and his presence in the area and the very odd hour that day raises many questions,” Sanjay claimed in a press conference, adding that the SP had also met a political leader the night before the attack.

“It is very suspicious that the terrorists did not kill the SP,” he claimed.

Slamming the Centre, the AAP leader alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s handling of Pakistan after the attacks had brought shame and defeat to the country.

“Even during his visit to Pakistan in December, Modi failed to take up the issue of the Dinanagar terror attack,” he claimed. Paying homage to Pathankot martyrs, Sanjay Singh said the country’s foreign policy under Modi had been directionless.

“We are not against talks with Pakistan, but these should be specific and issue-based,” he claimed.

Singh was accompanied by AAP state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur and legal cell incharge Himmat Singh Shergill and Kisan Cell spokesperson Karan Tiwana.
