SGPC Claims Crackdown on Amritpal Singh to Gain Political Mileage Ahead of Punjab Bypoll
A member of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has alleged that the crackdown on Amritpal Singh was for political mileage before the upcoming bypolls in Punjab. Singh was arrested last weekend in Moga and shifted to Dibrugarh prison in Assam.
Bhagwant Singh Sialka, an advocate and a member of the SGPC stated that the arrest of Amritpal Singh and the crackdown on ‘Waris Punjab De’ activist group was done to gain political mileage before the upcoming bypolls in Punjab. “The situation is good there. The bypolls are coming up in Punjab, and these things were done by the government to get political mileage. Nothing else,” he said.
