Chandigarh, May 30
Activists from Punjab Youth Congress and Chandigarh Youth Congress organized a candle light march in memory of Shubhdeep Singh aka Sidhu Moosewala here at Punjab Congress Bhawan.
The famous Punjabi singer and Congress leader was shot dead in broad daylight.
Punjab Youth Congress Chairman Brinder Singh Dhillon said the law and order situation in Punjab has deteriorated. He said shooting in broad daylight in this way raises a big question mark over the Punjab government and the state police.
Dhillon has said in the recent past that the Aam Aadmi Party-led government has taken security away from many prominent figures, including Moosewala, who has been promoted in the media for political gain and publicity. He said the security takedown list was also released, which led to the incident. Dhillon said security was withdrawn due to a political vendetta.
Speaking on the occasion, the President of the Chandigarh Youth Congress, Manoj Lubana, said security is only provided by the police administration to a leader of any organization or political party only on the basis of intelligence and that the government AAP immediately withdrew or reduced security from its political opponents. With the publication of the list, these leaders were directly targeted by anti-social elements.
