Sunil Jakhar, who quit Congress to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) recently, on Sunday termed the murder of Punjabi singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moose Wala “shocking”, and said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann-led Aam Adami Party government in the state should be held accountable. Jakhar claimed that the AAP tinkered with security to “gain cheap publicity”.
Notably, the Punjabi singer was shot dead a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police, along with 424 others.
Taking to Twitter, Jakhar said, “Murder of Sidhu Moosewala is utterly shocking. Aam Adami Party must be held accountable for tinkering with security issues to gain cheap publicity.” Jhakar tagged Bhagwant Mann in the tweet.
