Political parties also reacted
Politics has also heated up regarding the action against Amritpal Singh, head of Waris Punjab De Sanstha. Congress state head Amarinder Singh Raja Wading tweeted – True Sikhs do not run away from the Guru. The Punjab Police is doing its job under compulsion. People keep calm. On the other hand, Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu has taken a dig at Amritpal by uploading the video on Twitter. He said that I am watching on TV. Amritpal is running ahead, while the Punjab Police is behind him. Does a Sikh with a bane ever run like this? If Amritpal Singh was right, he should have been arrested directly in front of the Punjab Police. He has come to kill people’s children. This is the man of the agencies. This is a jackal.
Former cabinet minister and Congress leader Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has tweeted that he welcomes the belated action of the Punjab Police. Bharatiya Janata Party Punjab State President Ashwani Sharma said that the people of Punjab should maintain peace and brotherhood and let the law take its course. He said that the Bhagwant Mann government has delayed taking this step.
