Gurpatwant takes revenge for action in Jalandhar
Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, a Terrorist of Sikh for Justice living abroad, has claimed responsibility for this attack by sending a voice note. Pannu says that families who migrated from Pakistan in Latifpura in Jalandhar in 1947 have been made homeless by the Punjab government. It’s his revenge.
Pannu’s threat to CM
Gurpatwant Pannu has threatened Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. Pannu says that those following the path of former Chief Minister Beant Singh will be sent to him. If you have the courage, cross the bridge of Tarn Taran today, supporters of referendum are waiting.
Pannu has said that rocket launchers and bombs have reached every house in Punjab. This will give Punjab freedom from the rule of India.
