Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday said chief minister Parkash Badal Singh was suffering from “severe symptoms of selective dementia as he has forgotten the present and was only brooding over the past”.
“And that is the reason the rampant lawlessness and anarchy does not concern him as he seems to be blissfully unaware of whatever is happening in Punjab and still believes that the state is peaceful and prosperous”, Amarinder said in a statement here.
“Badal is not able to remember the recent killing of a policeman in broad daylight by criminals, the attack on a religious preacher, killing of the Namdhari sect matriarch and many moiré such incidents. He will still try to make us believe that Punjab is a completely peaceful state,” he added.
Amarinder pointed out that almost every day there were reports of farmers committing suicide or the gangsters killing each other and at times even policemen and youth dying of drug overdose and addiction or in a shootout.
“And Badal has the audacity to describe all these happenings as petty incidents”, he added.
