CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today strongly condemned the dastardly attack on Brig (Retd.) Jagdish Gagneja, Vice President of the RSS (Punjab) who was attacked in Jalandhar tonight. The Chief Minister has directed the district civil and police authorities to maintain maximum vigil against anti social elements and ensure that the culprits are apprehended at the earliest.

Badal also immediately directed authorities in Ludhiana to arrange for a team of top senior surgeons from the local DMC to be rushed to Jalandhar to attend to Brig Gagneja.

He said that his government has zero tolerance towards attempts to disturb the peace of Punjab.

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh also condemned the murderous attack on an RSS leader Jagdish Gagneja in Jalandhar today.

In a statement issued here today, Capt Amarinder said, such attacks do not portend well for Punjab. "Such nefarious designs deserve to be nipped in the bud lest these push Punjab into anarchy", he warned.

The PCC president said, people may not agree or approve of RSS ideology, but in a democracy everyone has a right to pursue his political and ideological beliefs.

Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal National Secretary Bharatiya Janata Party Kisan Morcha strongly condemned the hideous act of shooting RSS Punjab Chief Jagdish Gagneja in Jalandhar who is said to be critical with 3 close range bullet injuries.

Grewal said the state of Law and Order in Punjab is in shambolic state and one after one acts of crime by organised mafia of Punjab hints at political patronage of these organised criminals groups. Grewal further pointed out the series of deadly acts previously carried out by the mafia in Punjab in which Mata Chand Kaur of Namdhari samaj was shot from close range at bhaini Sahib and a few weeks later a convoy of Sikh preacher Sant Dhandriwale was attacked and in which his close was shot dead.

Grewal said the state of security of life in Punjab is at lowest and it doesn't look like it will get better until the coming elections . Grewal asked the Home Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal to come forward and take responsibility. Grewal said Brigadier Jagdish Jagneja is a national hero and fought wars for his country. He is a braveheart and this act won't detoriate his love for India and Punjab. He said we aIl pray for his early recovery.
