Amarinder hits out, calls remarks by Sidhu advisers ‘atrocious’, ‘anti-India’ – Times of India

CHANDIGARH: Taking serious note of the recent statements by Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu’s advisers on issues like Kashmir and Pakistan, CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday warned them against making what he described as “atrocious and ill-conceived comments”. He said such utterances were potentially dangerous to peace and stability of the state and the country.
The CM also urged Sidhu to rein in his advisers before they end up damaging India’s interests. He urged the two advisers, Malwinder Singh Mali and Pyare Lal Garg, to “stick to advising the Punjab Congress president and not speak on matters of which they had little or no knowledge, and have no understanding of the implications of their comments.”
He was reacting to reported remarks by Garg questioning Capt Amarinder’s criticism of Pakistan as well as the earlier controversial statement by Mali on Kashmir. Expressing shock at the statements, the CM said these statements were misplaced and antagonistic to the stated position of India and Congress on Pakistan and Kashmir.
“Kashmir was and is an inalienable part of India,” said Amarinder, adding that with his proclamation to the contrary, Mali had effectively and inexplicably toed Islamabad’s line. “This is totally anti-national,” he said. The CM also slammed Mali for not withdrawing his statement despite widespread condemnation it had evoked not only from other parties, but also from within the Congress.Ridiculing Garg’s statement that criticism of Pakistan by Amarinder was not in the interest of Punjab, the chief minister said Sidhu’s adviser was clearly disconnected from the ground reality. “The fact, which every Punjabi and every Indian knows, is that Pakistan’s threat to us is real. Every day, they are pushing weapons and drugs into Punjab via drones in a brazen attempt to destabilise our state, and our nation. Punjabi soldiers are dying at the borders at the hands of Pakistan-backed forces,” he added.
