He said that this harassment of the masses should be avoided adding he appealed to sangat to lift the roadblock in larger public interest. Lashing out at Akalis and Congress, Bhagwant Mann said that both these parties have connived with each other to save the guilty of these incidents.
The Chief Minister said that, while the unfortunate incidents of desecration and firing on innocents took place during the Akali regime, the Congress actively shielded the perpetrators of these crimes during its tenure. Bhagwant Mann further said that the Akali-Congress, nexus that was shielding the accused, had been broken with the AAP Government coming into power, which is already making strenuous efforts to nab the perpetrators. He said that his government is firmly committed to bring the guilty to book and ensure justice in both these cases to assuage the sentiments of the people.
