Chandigarh (PTI): Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday dismissed the Khalistani threats against him, saying he would not allow anyone to disturb the state’s peace.
“If they have the guts they should come and speak here instead of misleading people with unsubstantiated statements elsewhere. We want a stable Punjab, we want development. Having been in the Army, I had seen wars and had never worried about any risk or threat to my safety”, he said.
About his charges against Canadian defence minister Harjit Singh Sajjan, the Chief Minister said his job was to raise issues and he wanted to bring big investments in the state which required peace and stability.
He reiterated that Sajjan and several other Canadian parliamentarians had Khalistani leanings and were sympathising with people who wanted to disturb the peace of Punjab, which could not be allowed at any cost.
