Sunil Jakhar´s statement on security to Badals

It seems to be a script gone awry for the ruling Congress in Punjab. The sense of jubilation in the Congress camp since the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission report changed the political discourse in the state has given way to disquiet after October 7 show of radicals at Bargari.On Sunday, the congregation became a ragtag bunch of radicals, written-off politicians and ambitious Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebels joining ranks to take on the government. That too on an agenda that had been set by the Congress to corner former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his son and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Badal.Amarinder also does not share the views of Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar on “urgency” to act against the culprits at Bargari, nor on the unfolding revolt in the Akali Dal.
Jakhar had said in an interview on Saturday that the Bargari upsurge has shown people are losing patience and want action. He had also said the SAD needs to be saved from Sukhbir. But the CM dubbed it as Jakhar’s personal views.“It is an internal matter of the Akalis and we should not interfere in it,” he added. He also blunted the criticism of radicals on Monday by reading the riot act to them against “disturbing hard-earned peace of Punjab”.
