Former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh on Friday slammed the personal attack by the Punjab government against him and said it is worrying that instead of maintaining law and order amid the festive season, the Punjab government is now focussing on a "baseless" investigation into Amarinder Singh's friend Aroosa Alam's link with the ISI. Amarinder Singh's media advisor Raveen Thukral tweeted the statement of the former chief minister in which Amarinder Singh clarified that Aroosa Alam had been coming to India for 16 years with due clearance from the government of India. "You were a minister in my cabinet. Never heard you complain about Aroosa Alam. And she had been coming for 16 years with due GOI clearance. Or are you alleging that both NDA and Congress-led UPA governments in this period connived with Pak ISI?" the statement aimed at Punjab deputy CM Sukhjinder Randhawa said.

 

"What I am worried about is that instead of focusing on maintaining law & order at a time when terror threat is high and festivals are around the corner, you’ve put DGP Punjab Police on a baseless investigation at the cost of Punjab’s safety," the statement read.

According to the statement, Amarinder Singh also questioned whether the new government has anything else other than resorting to personal attacks. "One month after taking over this is all you have to show to the people. What happened to your tall promises on Bargari & drugs cases? Punjab is still waiting for your promised action," Amarinder Singh said, according to the statement.

The issue of Aroosa Alam was raked up by Sukhjinder Randhawa as he said the government should look into Amarinder Singh's friend's ISI connection as Captain has been raising the issue of drones coming from Pakistan for the last 4.5 years, he said, as quoted by ANI.

Aroosa Alam is a Pakistani journalist who is seen with Captain Amarinder Singh frequently. They reportedly met for the first time in 200 when Amarinder Singh went to Pakistan.
