Chandigarh, Dec 16: Aam Aadmi Party today dubbed as shameful Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal's remarks in Parliament terming the Abohar killing as a "gang war" and said that instead of providing justice to the victim's family, she was making excuses.
AAP in its statement here claimed that it was shameful that in place of providing justice to the 27-year-old victim's family, Kaur is making excuses and "lying" in the Parliament.
Kaur, yesterday, in Lok Sabha had accused Congress of politicising the issue of a "gang war" in which a Dalit man was killed and his limbs were chopped off.
She said in the incident, a Jat Sikh was also dismembered but the opposition was not talking about it as Jat Sikhs were not its vote bank.
AAP further said yesterday Union Minster Vijay Sampla had told the media that the case had nothing to do with a gang war. He had also accused SAD leader Shiv Lal and his nephew, Amit Doda, of the brutal murder.
Sampla had also deemed the killing as "most brutal attack ever reported in Punjab", the party said.
The party demanded a clarification from the government on the statement of Sampla, a member of BJP, which is an alliance partner in Punjab, saying that he had also contradicted the version of police of their own government.
Criticising the reports of Shiv Lal Doda of being a member of SAD, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had claimed that he has nothing to do with the party.
AAP said that photos of Doda with Badal during Sangat Darshan programme and rallies unmask his "lies".
Mann said that people should understand that these statements are issued to stall the process of justice in the case.
