TAKING STRONG exception to the latest statements by two advisors of Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on delicate points like Kashmir and Pakistan, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday warned towards such “atrocious and ill-conceived” feedback that had been “doubtlessly harmful to the peace and stability of the state and the nation”.
The CM urged Sidhu’s advisors to “stick with giving recommendation to the PPCC president” and “not communicate on issues of which they clearly had little or no data, and had no understanding of the implications of their feedback”.
Amarinder was reacting to Dr Pyare Lal Garg’s comment allegedly questioning the CM’s criticism of Pakistan, as nicely to an earlier assertion by Malwinder Singh Mali on Kashmir. Garg and Mali had been just lately appointed by Sidhu as his advisors.
He stated that the statements had been “completely misplaced and antagonistic to the said place of India and the Congress on Pakistan and Kashmir”. He urged the Punjab Congress president to rein in his advisors “earlier than they find yourself doing extra harm to India’s pursuits”.
