Singer Sidhu Musewala was shot dead on Sunday evening. A day before this, the government had reduced their security. Since then the government has been facing opposition from the people.
Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann was to visit Musa village of Mansa on Friday to pay tribute to famous singer Sidhu Musewala. Even before reaching Musa village, AAP MLA Gurpreet Singh Banawali had to face opposition from the people. The villagers raised slogans against him. In such a situation, it is now being speculated that the CM’s visit may be cancelled. Security has been tightened in the village in view of the CM’s visit.
Earlier on Thursday, there was an influx of leaders in Musa, the house of Moosewala. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait consoled the family. AAP government’s Finance Minister Harpal Cheema and Panchayat Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal reached Musewala’s house and consoled them by meeting father Balkaur Singh. Former Chief Minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, former Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal, former Rajya Sabha member Balwinder Singh Bhundar and former minister Sikander Singh Maluka reached on Thursday to share grief with Sidhu Musewala’s family.
Musewala’s father has written a letter to the country’s Home Minister Amit Shah regarding this murder case and has demanded an investigation by the central agency. Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, who reached the village, said that removing the security of singer Moosewala by the Punjab government is wrong. The government has failed miserably and there is no such thing as law and order in Punjab. He said that the fear and fear that the people of Punjab were feeling when Punjab was in the era of terrorism, today after the killing of Sidhu Musewala, the same fear has arisen again in the minds of the people.
