ka complete collapse of governance in Punjab where the Charanjit Singh Channi-led Congress government “is muzzled in its internal conflicts”, the BJP Saturday said. On a day Punjab advocate general hit out at state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, BJP leader Tarun Chugh said the ruling party is taking the state to “dumps” and the governor should intervene.

Advocate General APS Deol, earlier in the day, accused Sidhu of obstructing the functioning of the state government and his office as well as “spreading misinformation to gain political advantage”, his remarks coming a day after Congress leader withdrew his resignation as state party chief but declared that he will not re-assume charge till former is removed from post and a panel set up for the appointment of a new director general of police.

Taking strong exception to the charges made by Deol against Sidhu for interfering and scuttling the working of the AG office, Chugh said the infighting in the Congress has brought Punjab to the brink where drug mafia, sand mafia and liquor mafia are controlling the state.

Sidhu has been indulging in gross breach of Constitutional norms by interfering in the working of the state government, Chugh said, adding that “the Congress government in Punjab is taking the state to dumps and the governor should intervene to check disruptions in the working of a Constitutional office by political leaders”.

“Sidhu is making political capital out of the incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib which is unfortunate and reprehensible,” he said while asserting that the Congress has been playing politics on the issue instead of punishing the culprits.
