Capt attacks Badals for ‘derailing’ SIT
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, during his visit here on Wednesday, harped heavily on the sacrilege incidents to criticise Akalis and garner votes for Mohammad Sadiq, Congress candidate from the Faridkot Lok Sabha seat.
Addressing a rally here, the Chief Minister was also defensive on Akali and AAP’s attack on him for going back on his oath “on the Gutka” at Takht Damdama Sahib to wipe out drug menace.
“I had promised to break the backbone of the drug cartel in the state. Nabbing over 26,000 drug peddlers and sending over 4 lakh drug addicts to rehabilitation centres for their treatment in the last two years, I have rescued the state from the clutches of drugs as I had promised. There is increase of about five times in the drug prices in the state as the supply line has been cut down. This is a clear indication of drug abuse getting under control,” said the Chief Minister.
