Muktsar, July 24

Despite the Punjab and Haryana High Court issuing a notice of motion to Gidderbaha MLA Amrinder Singh Raja Warring and calling for an action-taken report in an FIR registered under the Epidemic Diseases Act for allegedly holding a political event, the Congress leaders are still not ready to relent.

On Thursday, Simarjit Singh Bhina Brar, a Zila Parishad member and Maninder Singh Mani Charewan, a member of Panchayat Samiti, addressed a gathering at Chauntra village while inaugurating development works.

Scores of people could be seen without masks in photos uploaded on the social media, but the authorities concerned have turned a blind eye.

Notably, the state government has put a complete ban on all public gatherings, except marriages and certain social functions. Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has made it mandatory to register an FIR against those found violating the norms.

Charewan, said, “We had gone to Chauntra village to launch development works. We followed the state government’s health guidelines. Some people present at the village ground gathered on the spot.”

Recently, Youth Congress activists had held a meeting to discuss their future strategy at the Zila Parishad Complex in Muktsar but no action was taken against them.

However, Mukstar SAD MLA Kanwarjit Singh Rozy Barkandi had held a meeting of his workers at his residence and a case was slapped on him for violating safety norms.
