Slap sedition charges on Sukhbir: Congress

The Congress Monday demanded Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal should be booked for sedition for his Shiromani Akali Dal’s decision to hold protests against the Border Security Force (BSF) over the issue of drug smuggling.

“The decision of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal to hold four dharnas on the sensitive international border with Pakistan, which is unprecedented and will lead to public disorder and incite violence at the already tense border, is seditious in nature,” state Congress president Pratap Singh Bajwa said here.

He noted that while Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah (whose party is part of the state’s ruling coalition) has announced to begin the BJP’s national anti-drug campaign from Amritsar on Jan 12, “Sukhbir has announced a parallel dharna against the brave soldiers of the BSF guarding this 
sensitive and active border, which is in effect a dharna against the BJP-lead central government”.
