Anti-Punjab Conspiracy: Apologise to Punjabis for Branding them as Drug Addicts, Demands Akali Dal to Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal

Chandigarh, Sep 11, 2017: Punjab’s opposition Akali Dal on Sunday said that latest findings of PGIMER survey listing drug addiction in the state at less than a per cent had yet again nailed the “anti-Punjab conspiracy” of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and demanded they apologise to the people.

“The latest comprehensive survey which was carried out in all 22 districts as well as 22 villages in each district, had exposed the anti-Punjab conspiracy of Rahul Gandhi and his team as well as that of AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal,” SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal said in a statement here.

“Both leaders and their parties should now tell Punjabis why they branded them as drug addicts and tender an unconditional apology to the people of the state.”

Claiming that the “entire conspiracy was hatched to counter the development narrative of the previous SAD-BJP government”, Badal said though the Congress had succeeded in its goal of achieving power in Punjab, it had caused incalculable damage to its people and its economy.

“Both Congress and AAP played with the lives of the youth and made them virtually unhireable. The image distortion also dented the image of Punjab and Punjabis worldwide,” he said.

Highlighting Rahul Gandhi’s “nefarious role in this sordid chapter of Punjab politics”, Badal said he was “definitely the villain-in-chief”.

“Rahul uttered an utter lie to reap political mileage for his flagging party by claiming in October 2012 at a NSUI function in Chandigarh that 70 per cent of the state’s youth were drug addicts.

“This despite the fact that he knew well that he was reading out a sample survey of drug addicts of which youth formed a big share,” he said.

“During the Punjab assembly campaign this year, he insisted he was speaking the truth and even had the gall to ask Punjabis to admit they were drug addicts. Such behaviour coming from the chosen scion of the Gandhi dynasty is shameful,” he added.

A survey done by a team of doctors and researchers of the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research had revealed that drugs abuse in Punjab was just around one per cent of the 2.8 crore population in the state.

Badal said that Aam Aadmi Party leader Kejriwal and “his gang of outsiders had also tried to doom the future of the youth by claiming 40 lakh youth were drug addicts”.

“The PGIMER report puts the entire number of addicts in the state at 2.7 lakh. Other reports, included that conducted by AIIMS, had come out with even lower figures than this,” he added.

A detailed survey by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi had put the drug addiction at 0.84 per cent.

“The Punjab government also got a dope test conducted on 3.76 lakh youth who presented themselves for police recruitment. The test, which was conducted by the Baba Farid Health Sciences University, saw only 1.27 per cent candidates testing positive,” Badal said, citing a survey done during the Akali government last year.

New Delhi, Mar 25, 2017: BJP MP proposed ‘The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill, 2016’ which seeks deletion of Section 19, which makes it mandatory for anyone having knowledge about molestation of a child to report it to the police, as reported by PTI.

The section says “any person who has the knowledge that such an offence (like molestation of a child) has been committed, shall provide the information to the police.”

According to Subramanian Swamy, the section is creating problems for even the judges who are hearing the cases. Often in divorce cases, the wife would say to the judges that her husband had molested her child, and according to the provision of the present law it makes it mandatory for the judge to report it, and many wives and husbands have filed FIR against judges under Section 21. As a result judges are afraid of taking divorce cases and it has caused a great backlog of such cases.

Swamy had said that the amendment in the section (19) would have an exception which would enable  who conduct judicial proceedings shall be exempt from this section Swamy said.

The passage of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2012 was widely welcomed but the drafting of some sections has been so poor which has caused many people especially in the judiciary to speak up against it as they have themselves faced harassment due to the application of this act.

October 20, 2016: In poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, it was  a jolt to Congress when Rita Bahuguna Joshi, the leader of the senior party, joined BJP. Following her joining, Rahul Gandhi was attacked by Joshi over his methods of running the party and his response to the Surgical Strikes by the army.

67-year-old Joshi is the daughter of the renowned Congress veteran late Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna who has been highly speculated over deserting the Congress party. Today, in the presence of the president of the BJP party Amit Shah, Joshi joined the party at the headquarters in New Delhi.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

There can be no alternative to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP party- a former president of UPCC, resigning today from the power of a Congress MLA, was reported as saying.

Joshi was said to be not happy regarding the leadership of Congress over the projection of Sheila Dikshit as the face of its chief minister in UP. She strongly repented the present conditions of the party affairs and has alleged that the extremely poor shape of the party has led it to hand over the working contractually to Prashant Kishore, the strategist.

Joshi stated that she has been utterly disheartened by recent events and slammed Rahul for his disparaging remarks of “Dalali” at Modi, regarding the Surgical Strikes.

“Along with the nation, I too was happy. The whole world accepted India’s arguments behind the strikes. Congress, however, behaved like a small party and went on to question it. The whole nation was upset with a phrase like ‘khoon like dalali’,” she said attacking Gandhi.

Joshi claimed that his barb presented Pakistan with an opportunity to question the Surgical Strikes. Joshi stated that out of her political career of 27 years, 24 years had been spent in Congress and only 10 months in the Samajwadi Party. She added, “The decision to quit Congress was not easy. However, I took it in the interest of the nation and the state (UP).”

Joining of Joshi in the party will supposedly boost up the efforts of BJP to combine the Brahmin voters into a single unit as it looks forward to undergo a colossal transfiguration and rise to power in the state after a huge time of 15 years.
