Vacating border villages creating panic in Punjab: AAP
The AAP on Friday claimed that over 950 villages have been vacated in Punjab following the anti-terror strike by the army across the LOC and questioned why is it being done in the state alone as it was leading to panic there. AAP leader H S Poolkha said villages are being vacated at a time when crops are at a stage of maturity and harvest is about to start.
Alleging that villages in Punjab alone are being vacated, he questioned why is the state being singled out when there is “no such movement in neighbouring Rajasthan and Gujarat”. “People are going through lot of hardship. Their animals, belongings are left behind. Crops at stage of maturity and harvesting is about to start. Why only in Punjab?,” AAP leader said.
