Mohali blast: BJP leader Shekhawat says AAP-led Punjab govt not serious on border security

Suratgarh (Rajasthan): 

Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Tuesday lashed out at the Aam Aadmi Party-led Punjab government for the explosion in Mohali on May 9. The Union Minister said AAP government is not serious about border security.

Shekhawat said, “Punjab is a border area with sensitive boundaries, and we (BJP) had repeatedly pressed on the need for its security during the elections.” 

The Union Minister termed the incident as ‘unfortunate’ and said Punjab had faced the heat of terrorism for several decades, and therefore, there is a need for a lot of promptness and vigilance in the state.

“Unfortunately, neither the present government nor the previous one is serious about it. Hundreds of such incidents have been registered; weapons are dropped from drones. There is a need for more vigilance and the government of the state needs to make serious efforts,” he said.

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadami Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday condemned the attack occurred in Punjab’s Mohali on May 9. The Chief Minister termed the blast “a cowardly act” and assured the culprits will be punished. 

“Mohali blast is a cowardly act of those who want to disturb the peace of Punjab. Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab government will not allow those people’s wishes to be fulfilled. Peace will be maintained under all circumstances with the cooperation of all the people of Punjab and the culprits will be punished severely,” said the Chief Minister.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday informed that the police have started the investigation into the matter. He further stated those who attempted to spoil the atmosphere of the state will not be spared.

As per news agency ANI, the state Chief Minister has called for a meeting at his residence today with DGP and other senior officers to seek a report on the course of action taken so far.

However, there were media reports claiming that another bomb blast took place in Mohali which was later denied by the Punjab Police. Reports of a second blast in Mohali had come to the fore hours after a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the Intelligence Wing headquarters of the Punjab Police in Mohali on Monday evening.
