Centre won’t let anti-India forces destabilise Punjab: Puri | India News

NEW DELHI: The Centre will not allow the situation in Punjab to be destabilised by forces operating either inside or outside India, Union minister Hardeep Singh said on Friday and noted that steps are under way to get to the bottom of the Ludhiana blast.
Puri, who is also a BJP co-in-charge of the upcoming Punjab assembly polls, said a lot of activities have happened in the state which point to some “sinister force” at work and the objective seems to be to somehow create confusion and chaos. Noting that Union minister Kiren Rijiju visited Ludhiana and Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting here on the situation in Punjab, Puri said: “You will get the facts very soon. I will not jump to conclusions… We will get to the bottom of this and all such acts.” Rijiju on Friday visited the Ludhiana district court rocked by a bomb blast a day earlier and said the Centre and the state will work together to ensure strong action against the domestic and foreign elements trying to spoil peace and harmony in the state as well as the country.
To a question about the Allahabad High Court’s remarks urging PM Modi and the Election Commission to ban political meetings and defer the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls in view of the rising threat of Omicron, 0Puri and BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said the poll watchdog is the constitutional body to take a decision on such issues.
Rijiju said the Centre and the state will work together to ensure strong action against elements trying to spoil peace.
