Sukhbir : All’s well in state after Dhadhrianwale was attacked

Days after preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadhrianwale was attacked in Ludhiana, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today asserted that absolute peace prevailed in the state.He was addressing a gathering at Gurdas Nangal, 7 km from here, to mark the 300th death anniversary of Sikh warrior Banda Singh Bahadur. Sukhbir said his government would go to any extent to maintain the hard-earned peace in Punjab.He claimed Punjab was the “safest and the most peaceful” state of the country. “For the last five years, our state has registered a negative crime rate and even the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) had ranked Punjab as a state having one of the lowest incidences of crime against women. Communal harmony and law and order will not be allowed to be disturbed by vested interests. Punjab had remained a prosperous and peace-loving state and this will be maintained in future also,” he said.
