On Thursday, the Congress party denounced the arrest of Punjab Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira and declared that any such action constitutes an abuse of authority, to which Congress firmly and unanimously objects. The All India Kissan Congress Chairman Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s arrest, according to Congress, is evidence of abuse of authority and retaliation. “The entire Congress family is with him in opposing this small-minded plot to muzzle his outspoken criticism of injustice. We are not prepared to stop or to kneel. The Congress tweeted, “We will fight and prevail.
Amarinder Singh Raja Brar, the state president of the Congress, also denounced Khaira’s detention and called it “Jungle Raj.” “The AAP government’s recent arrest of Sukhpal Khaira ji smells of political vendetta; it is an effort to intimidate the opposition and a ruse to divert attention from important issues. The Congress PCC Chief declared, “We stand firmly with Sukhpal Khaira and will carry this fight to its just conclusion. The Sukhpal Khaira family was also met by the Congress PCC Chief, who gave them the party’s support. Partap Singh Bajwa, a leader for the Congress in the state Assembly, criticized Bhagwant Mann for keeping the Congress MLA in custody.
