Minutes after Republic broke its mega global exclusive, which uncovered the ‘Break India’ movement of the front for Khalistani groups, whose members have been caught on camera accepting working hand in hand with China, Pakistan and Maoists to wreak havoc in the country, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said, “Peace will prevail in Punjab and if anyone is going to try and harm us then we will teach them a lesson.”
“We're not concerned about what they are doing abroad. Whether they're in Canada, UK or the kind of place they're in, we are not concerned. But I assure you that they (pro Khalistan elements) will not harm the environment in Punjab,” said Amarinder Singh.
On one of the stung front of Khalistani groups’ claim that Dal Khalsa campaigned for AAP in Punjab during Punjab Elections in 2017, Amarinder Singh said:
“Regarding the donation to the political party is concerned, Income Tax is going to look into it. We are probing where the money is coming from and how it is coming. We have got a lot of information that will be passed on to the appropriate authority.”
In Republic TV's sting, Gurcharan Singh was caught on camera claiming that Dal Khalsa backed the Aam Aadmi Party in the Punjab Assembly Elections 2017. Singh also alleged that the campaigning wasn't about AAP but it was just to upset the political forces in Punjab.
“Look at Punjab. AAP won the elections. They won 95 seats. We were on the ground. Campaigning for the party. We funded the party to see what a campaign makes a difference. And it does make a difference. People voted for AAP. They did not win because of the EVM,” said Gurcharan Singh.
When Singh was told that AAP didn't win the Punjab elections, he said that the campaigning wasn’t about AAP, it was “To counter, to upset the political forces in Punjab. And, see how it happens.”
Even though Republic TV isn’t taking the claim made by Gurcharan Singh at face value, the claims deserve to be investigated.
The Aam Aadmi Party finished second in the Punjab Assembly elections 2017, way behind the Congress, which later formed government in the state with Captain Amarinder Singh as the Chief Minister.
