Tewari targets SAD-BJP government over law and order

Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari today launched a scathing attack on the ruling SAD-BJP alliance, alleging that Punjab's law and order situation has deteriorated under the present regime.

Referring to incidents of killing of an ASI in Amritsar and a recent hotel brawl in Ludhiana in which a police officer was injured, Tewari accused Akali Dal of patronising criminal elements.

"The law and order situation in Punjab has reached such a grave situation that Akali leaders now do not even hesitate in attacking senior police officers," the Union minister, who was addressing a gathering at Galib Kalan village near here, said after laying the foundation stone of 7.6-km link road.

"The law enforcing machinery is so intimidated that the badly injured senior police officer (AIG S S Mand) didn't even dare to lodge an FIR regarding the attack on him by the leaders of the ruling party," he said, adding that there is no fear of law in the minds of criminal elements.
