Punjab politicians slam Kangana for ‘terrorism’ remark

 

Chandigarh, June 7 : Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Bikram Singh Majithia and Sukhpal Singh Khaira are among several other politicians, who have criticised actor and new MP Kangana Ranaut’s remark that “terrorism and extremism were on rise in Punjab” after she was slapped by a CISF jawan at the Chandigarh airport a day back.

Shiromani Akali Dal MP Badal said that no one should be allowed to label Punjabis as ‘Atankwadi’ or ‘Ugravadi’ and fan communal divisions.

Bikram Singh Majithia, while reacting to the incident wrote on X that though he was not a supporter of violence in any form but he had repeatedly said that farmers were supporting nation by providing food and their sons, brothers and sisters were serving at borders and their voice should not go unheard.

He said what happened at Chandigarh airport was result of refusal by rulers to hear farmers and soldiers’ voices.

“Rulers should understand why such a situation has emerged which forced Kulwinder Kaur to take such extreme step,” he said.

Majithia said that a statement has been issued: “Punjabis are turning Terrorists…one need to avoid such statements which create atmosphere of bitterness”.

Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira took to X to condemn Kangna’s comment and wrote: “I never support any kind of violence but she was slapped by CISF personnel Kulwinder Kaur due to her own nefarious divisive agenda and her hate for farmers.

“The CISF personnel hit her because she felt bad when Kangana taunted protesting farmers as paid ‘Daily Wagers’, as her mother was part of the same protest.”

“It appears she has learnt no lesson and is once again spitting venom against farmers and Punjab. She’s trying to portray the slap with revival of Terrorism in Punjab not realising it was a SLAP and not a bullet fired.

“She should now realise she’s an MP and must control her tounge,” Khaira added.
