Chandigarh, September 3

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today warned his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal against trying to exploit the Covid crisis to instigate people in Punjab’s villages, which have witnessed a spurt of fake news and provocative videos, at least one of which was found to have emanated from abroad, most likely Pakistan, and propagated here allegedly by a worker of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

AAP’s Amrinder Singh has been arrested and being questioned to ascertain who motivated him to circulate the post to mislead the people into believing that organs of dead patients were being removed by the Health Department.

The Chief Minister said the video/post allegedly propagated by the AAP worker was seen to be exhorting and provoking people not to cooperate with the health authorities, thus endangering the health and safety of the citizens of the state.

“Such rumours are provoking a section of the community to resist proper medical care which needs to be provided to all Covid-affected citizens. This is a clear case of a deadly criminal conspiracy against the people of the state who are already suffering due to the pandemic,” Capt Amarinder said.
