    The devilish game has started as soon as they come to power

    Punjab had been suffering from misrule for the last five years. The state unit president of Congress, Shri Sidhu, was constantly fighting against the selected Chief Minister, first Captain Amrinder Singh and later Charanjit Singh Channi. So, the expected thing happened. The party was booted out of power.

    The Aam Admi Party (AAP) grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Arvind Kejriwal promised everything, free electricity, free water, highest price of agricultural goods, etc. to the Punjabis and the party has come to power. However, some observers have noted that the party did not speak much about the drug menace in the state or the conspiracy across the border.. The person who has been brought as the Chief Minister, is famous(!) for various other well-known reasons, except administrative work. Arvind Kejriwal has started ruling the state from Delhi as AAP Chief Minister does not instill much confidence.

    Under these circumstances, yesterday Patiala witnessed a very disturbing incident. Khalistani supporters attacked others, especially some devotees near a local Shiva Temple. They brandished swords and other weapons openly. The police did not do much due to the absence of clear instructions.

    People of India note with growing concern that immediately after AAP's ascendancy to power in Punjab, anti-national forces are becoming stronger in the state. This is of much concern because it is a border-state, has a long history of Khalistani terrorism and ongoing drug menace. The problem is more complicated because of a worthless chief minister.

    It is noted with concern that the devilish game has started as soon as they have come to power.

    It is very unfortunate that Khalistan which was the closed subject has once again gaining importance thanks to the incompetence rule of the new Punjab Government and not taking action against those who attacked the devotees of Shiva temple. There seems to no law and order as swords were used openly in the garb of their rights to hold it as religious admittance. What ever it Punjab is the border state of Pakistan and there are every chances that evil forces would enter the state and later the country to create unwanted uneasy calm in future. Home Ministry at Delhi should take this issue seriously and if that is not controlled by the state govt, then President rule be imposed because there should not be let loose of the situation. And Kejriwal should know that controlling the Khalistan is the first step he should do.

    It is too early to talk about President's rule there in that State. As mentioned by the author the State government here should be very alert and should have a constant vigil on the borders so that evil forces will not attack the public here openly. If necessary they should take the support of the home ministry of the Central government and see that the border is under constant watch.
    If the AAP chief has to rule this State also from Delhi, it will be difficult and a strong Chief Minister is required. It is the culture of some parties in India to keep CMs of the state just for sake of having a CM and the party's top people from their Head office will administer everything in the state. That will not suit this state and we should have a strong CM and should also have good relations with the Central government. The ultimate motto of all leaders should be to save the interests of the nation and see that peace is maintained in the country.

    AAP is an opportune party and played it's cards well in Punjab elections and came to power. Let us try to understand that if a party comes in power by promising people some freebies then how it would be generating proper revenues and administer the state. It clearly shows that party has only the objective of getting power at any cost. If some anti social or terrorist elements start their activities in such a situation then such a regime might not be able to take a strong decision against them. That is a big problem for the state as well as the country. The common public is happy with the freebies and concessions given by the Govt and these political parties are enjoying their positions.

    Many people feel that the country is suffering from misrule for the past few years. The BJP also promised several freebies to the people like AAP but failed to grab the power. The AAP was successful as the people believed it. Bhagwant Singh Mann was declared before the elections as the Chief Minister's face of AAP if it came to power. The people of Punjab believed in his capabilities and AAP came to power.
    The Patiala disturbances are unfortunate and the investigation will show the people and the purpose behind them. Punjab is having the drug menace for a long. This is not a new issue. Let us wait and see how the new government will tackle the problem. Punjab is a border State and the duty of safeguarding the borders is the duty of the military and paramilitary forces. The government is new and already the devilish game to destabilize it has started. These destabilizing forces are a real danger not only to the State of Punjab but also to the country.

    1. I raised this thread as an almost ignorant 'aam-admi' to express concern of an aam-admi about the unfortunate violence unleashed by the Khalistanis at Patiala, Punjab day before yesterday.

    2. Mohan Sir, Dr. Rao Sir, Umesh Sir and KVRR Sir have expressed their valuable opinion on this issue. I thank them all because their comments have enriched my knowledge.

    3. However, KVRR Sir has made a comment which has perplexed me. He has said: "Punjab is a border State and the duty of safeguarding the borders is the duty of the military and paramilitary forces. The government is new and already the devilish game to destabilize it has started."--- An erudite and very knowledgeable, updated gentleman like KVRR Sir definitely knows about West Bengal. The state government and supporters of the local ruling party do their level best to hamper the working of BSF along the international border in the state. If BSF doesn't get cooperation from local government, it can't function properly and as a result, the cow smuggling, food items smuggling and business of illegal arms and fake currency prosper. This is exactly happening in the state of West Bengal. Some people (whom KVRR Sir would find terrible) opine that the local ruling party leaders are actively associated with these smuggling and illegal business and armed dealings in West Bengal.

    4. So, in Punjab also, Army and BSF can function only with the help of local Government. But, unfortunately, the earlier dubious role played by AAP leaders during the anti-CAA agitation and farmers' agitation in Delhi raises concern. AAP leaders sided with anti-national forces during these movements; some directly and many others, indirectly.

    5. So, the common excuse that the border is the responsibility of the Central Government no longer stands the scrutiny of logic of common man. However, the logic of top-level intellectuals is definitely different.

    One small example how AAP leaders incite violence. This is the case of Haryana. Former AAP Councillor Nisha Singh (a close confidante of Manish Sisodia, the Deputy CM of Delhi) has been held guilty and sentenced to seven years in prison for inciting violence against the HUDA anti-encroachment drive in 2015. But, the apologists have been trying to put the matter under the carpet, or, trying to say that Nisha Singh was innocent.

    Partha sir, the Union Government is supposed to work in tandem with the State Governments. This is not happening. Sometimes decisions are taken without consulting the State Governments. The Governors are also not performing to the level expected of them. Every political party has skeletons in its cupboards. Time for the political parties to think about public welfare than playing politics for their selfish ends. The public is knowledgeable know. They started thinking and questioning. The entire political system needs a complete overhaul. There is no point in blaming.

    Yes, the Union Government must work in tandem with the state governments. That is the essence of federal structure. But, from the very real example of West Bengal Government, we can say that some state governments consciously may not work in coordination with the Union Government due to some other factors. In such cases, common people must think and act seriously. The interest of the nation is paramount.

    The West Bengal government is also feeling that the Union government is not working in tandem with it. Many State governments feel the same. The federal structure of the nation should be honored and the State governments should be taken into confidence wherever necessary. Unilateral decisions harm the federal structure. When all the political parties put the interests of the nation before their party interests, India would have been a far better country than it is now.

    KVRR Sir has opined: "The West Bengal government is also feeling that the Union government is not working in tandem with it." In this regard, I 200% agree with him. The present West Bengal Government feels the same. The Union Government will never work in collusion with the State Government to support many questionable activities (I am using the mildest term!).

    Brandishing swords or guns or other weapons is becoming a common trend in political or religious procession. Why these people are openly defying law enforcement agencies without any fear of punishment is a serious matter. Perhaps they are so much confident that they will be acquited from prison very soon because of their political support .
    What happened in Punjab is a matter of concern. If there are still some groups longing for Khalistan then government should take strict action against such fringe elements.
    This week in Ayodhya seven anti social elements have been arrested by police for instigating communal violance in the state. Four other culprits are absconding.

    When Indira Gandhi was the PM the Khalistan movement was at the peak and she dealt that with iron hand and the movement got back seat. Now with AAP clandestine dealing with anti national forces, the Khalistan once again opening its tentacles and I am sure if the situation escalates, the Pakistan would be the beneficiary because there is a change of govt there, and enemy country evil designs are best known to us. So in the interest of the nation the Khalistan should be tamed immediately before it flares up to biggest level in future and better APP chief Kejriwal also understands this.

    Now Shri Kejriwal ordered his subordinate Shri Mann to send police force from Punjab to arrest a BJP leader from Delhi. This leader, Shri Tejinder Singh Bagga, had earlier protested Shri Kejriwal's attitude about the film 'The Kashmir Files' and the hapless Kashmiri Pandits. So, Punjab Police team has been sent to Delhi to arrest Shri Bagga today morning.

    Let us wait for more such dangerous tactic from Shri Kejriwal.
