Khalistan flags spotted in Himachal Pradesh: ‘BJP can’t even save Assembly’, taunts AAP

After visuals of Khalistan flags tied to the gates of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly emerged, Dharamshala MLA Vishal Mehra visited the spot and called the incident an act of ‘cowardice’. He further mentioned that strict actions will be taken against the people responsible for the same. Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has launched a scathing attack on the BJP. 


Addressing the media, Vishal Mehra said, “Earlier also we have seen such act by Khalistan (symphatisers). We challenge then if they have courage then do this in day light”. 


He added that they are not scared of any Khalistani member. All the CCTV footage is being checked and accordingly, action will be taken against the people responsible, he informed. 


Attacking the BJP over the recent incident, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia tweeted, “While the BJP is trying to save a goon, Khalistan (terrorists) placed a flag (in Himachal Assembly) and left. A government which is not able to save the Assembly, how will it save the people? This is a matter of Himachal’s honour, it is a matter of the country’s security. The BJP government has completely failed”. 


पूरी भाजपा एक गुंडे को बचाने में लगी है और उधर ख़ालिस्तानी झंडे लगाकर चले गए.


जो सरकार विधान सभा ना बचा पाए, वो जनता को कैसे बचाएगी। ये हिमाचल की आबरू का मामला है, देश की सुरक्षा का मामला है। भाजपा सरकार पूरी तरह फेल हो गयी।

I urge the people of the State to maintain peace. We will soon review security at our borders with other states”.
