Won't allow violence of any form from any sect in Punjab: Amarinder Singh

By Chennabasaveshwar

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday chaired a high-level meeting over law and order situation in the state in the wake of violence in neighbouring Haryana after Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted in a rape case.

Amarinder Singh told reporters, ''I will not allow violence of any form from any sect in Punjab.''

    ''There were no deaths in Punjab, everything was peaceful here. There was no firing, lathicharge.'' he added.

    In a veiled attack against the BJP government in Haryana, Singh said ''Fault was in allowing people to gather in Panchkula when the verdict was coming; they should have known that there could be a problem.''

    When asked about the transportation provided to Dera supporters, Punjab CM said that people were given buses so that they could be transported safely back to their respective places without any violence.

    ''We will be making a list of all the damaged public and private property and as per Punjab and Haryana High Court, the cost will have to be paid by Dera,'' he added.

    He further said, we are prepared for any violence that may occur on the day of sentencing. All the key issues will be covered, said Amarinder Singh.
