Mansa, July 4
For the first time after the killing of Sidhu Moosewala, his father Balkour Singh today made a public appearance and inaugurated a road in Burj Dhilwan village in Mansa district.
The road was given the go-ahead by Moosewala before the Assembly poll, when he was made the Congress halqa in-charge of Mansa.
Security cut: Cong wants responsibility fixed
- Former Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa today asked Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to answer the charges levelled against his government by Sidhu Moosewala’s father, Balkaur Singh, for the security lapse that led to the murder of his son.
- He also expressed dissatisfaction over the pace of the investigation into Moosewala’s killing, saying the government appeared to be completely clueless so far and was only dependent on the claims made by a foreign-based gangster.
- Randhawa, while supporting the charges of Balkaur Singh, demanded that the responsibility be fixed as to who were the people who decided to prune Moosewala’s security. He said this was a grave intelligence failure on the part of the government.
Talking to villagers on the occasion, an emotional Balkour Singh said: “Your expectations are quite high. I will not be able to do a lot, but whatever dreams my son saw for the constituency, I will try to fulfil these.”
He claimed that eight attempts were made to attack Moosewala during the poll campaign. However, the new government pruned his security, along with that of others, and also leaked the information to the media. He was attacked a day after his security was withdrawn.
Talking about the reason behind the killing of Moosewala, his father said the only reason was that a youth from a normal family had risen so high in just four years. He said gangsters were running a parallel government in the state.
