Politians should personally make efforts to improve the ‘volatile’ situation in Phagwara – Kainth
Captain led Govt should immediately call for an All Party meet – NSCA
Every party should rise above from the vote bank politics and try to mend the situation in Phagwara – Kainth
Chandigarh, 17th April – The situation in the doaba region of Punjab is day by day deteriorating due to the incident which happened in Phagwara last week. The circumstances in the city are volatile and people are in continuous fear of violence and oppression. In the wake of the incident, Captain Amrinder Singh led Congress Govt should call for an All Party meeting immediately, so as to resolve the rising tension in the area and find a peaceful and collective decision to tackle the problem, said Paramjit Singh Kainth, President of the National Scheduled Castes Alliance, a socio-political organization working for the Scheduled Castes community in Punjab.
Kainth further reiterated that “ The situation of law & order in Punjab has been on the decline and instances of caste based violence have increased manifold under the present Congress regime and it is high time that Captain Amrinder should take a serious look into the condition of his government in the State. He should take this issue and enquire into the reason behind such incidents very seriously. Caste based violence are a hindrance to the development and unity of the society and this cannot be taken lightly.”
Kainth further demanded that such individuals or groups should be dealt with strictly and the government should adopt a hard-line strategy to tackle such miscreants. The implacable attempts of such anti-Scheduled Castes elements to disrupt the peaceful co-existence of people in society has resulted in the recent events that unfolded in Phagwara and then led to further spread in the whole doaba region including Jalandhar, Nawanshehar etc.
Kainth said “All the political parties should further rise above the vote bank politics and try to mend the ever increasing distance between the relations of Scheduled Castes community and the general community. Instances such as this fuel the tensions even more and it is the duty of the government as well as other political parties to become a bridge to end the gap between the 2 sections of the society.”
National Scheduled Castes Alliance will try to help anyone affected in the incidents through its reach and will also provide assistance if required to mend the situation in the area.
