Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs on Tuesday staged a walk-out of the House while raising slogans and demanding immediate removal of DGP Dinkar Gupta and Cabinet Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu.
Leader of Opposition, Harpal Singh Cheema targeted Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh over the burning issues, but no plausible answers could satisfy the AAP leaders, reads a release issued by AAP.
The statement further reads that AAP MLAs maintained their aggressive stance over the Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s giving ‘clean chit’ to DGP Dinkar Gupta and cabinet Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu.
Talking to media persons after the walkout, Harpal Singh Cheema said the state DGP should be immediately sacked for his highly insensitive statement against the venerable place where the Guru Nanak Ji had spent his last days.
While referring to Punjab DGP’s pictures with Pakistani woman Arusa Alam that were going viral on social media, AAP leader said that it appeared if she was actually running the Punjab government.
Harpal Singh Cheema said that those who were indulging in hate propaganda over the historic Sri Kartarpur Sahib corridor should come and explain on what basis Arusha Alam was staying in Punjab?
Addressing media persons, Bhagwant Mann said that DGP should be removed from his post for his utterances against Kartarpur Sahib.
Bhagwant Mann said that Arusa Alam is running the state administration and clearing administerial appointments.
Talking to a TV journalist Kultar Singh Sandhwan rejected Punjab CM Amarinder Singh’s argument that DGP’s statement was a ‘humanly mistake’. He said the state DGP does not enjoy liberty to commit such kinds of mistakes.
Others who were a part of the walkout included Aman Arora, Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Prof. Baljinder Kaur, Sarabjit Kaur Manuke, Principal Budh Ram, Jai Krishan Singh Rauri, Kulwant Singh Pandori, Rupinder Kaur Ruby, Manjit Singh Bilaspur and Master Baldev Singh (All MLAs).
