State general secretary Subhash Sharma said Deol was the lawyer of the Behbal Kalan firing accused — ex-DGP Sumedh Saini and suspended IGP Paramraj Umaranangal. “Punjabis are saddened at this as we want a logical conclusion to the sacrilege case,” he said.

AAP targets ministers

  • AAP’s Harpal Cheema flayed the CM’s move to re-induct a former minister into the Cabinet
  • He said the inclusion of corrupt and tainted leaders had proved the Congress could not change its character by changing faces
  • “Such ministers also nixed Channi’s claim that he won’t tolerate corruption,” he said

Meanwhile, AAP MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan said: “By appointing a man who defended Saini, the Congress has proved its intent.” — TNS
