Amarinder questions Badal's silence over attack on Gen Brar
Reiterating that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal was a "moral and physical coward," Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Amarinder Singh today questioned his silence over the attack on Lt Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar in London on Sunday night.
In a statement issued here today, Capt Amarinder remarked, "Badal's silence is just not criminal, it is seditious and betrays his moral and physical cowardice." Capt Amarinder Singh said it was shocking that the Chief Minister had preferred to keep quiet on such a critical issue that was directly related to Punjab.
Asking the Chief Minister to clarify his stand on the attack on Gen Brar, the PCC President said, "Badal's silence simply amounts to approving the attack." He said on such issues Badal could not stick to his characteristic fence sitting positions. "You are either with the terrorists who attacked Gen Brar or against them. With your silence you have clearly conveyed that you are with the terrorists who attacked Gen Brar."
