Most respectfully and humbly, may I have the privilege to draw your kind attention to the fact that Mr Arvind Kejriwal, while holding the constitutional office of the Chief Minister of Delhi, had stayed in the house of former Chief of Khalistan Liberation Force, Gurwinder Singh, ahead of Punjab Legislative Assembly polls in 2017.
The said terrorist is accused of inciting Sikh-Hindu riots during the years when terrorism was at its peak in Punjab and was even jailed in cases relating to murder and other heinous crimes.
As lawlessness has engulfed Aam Aadmi Party-ruled Punjab, it is the right time to recall what former DGP, Mr KPS Gill, IPS had said about its all India convenor Mr Arvind Kejriwal way back in 2017. Mr Gill who was responsible for quelling the spread of separatism in Punjab had slammed AAP for providing a platform to the ‘radical Sikh diaspora’ which aimed to create a base to operate.
He had called the 2017 Maur Mandi blasts ahead of assembly polls “very very serious” and that the Aam Aadmi Party is “not aware of what they are doing.” Notably, on January 29, 2017 twin blasts occurred in Maur, Punjab wherein 7 people lost their lives and 25 were severely injured. “Actually, I had predicted that because of the activities of certain political parties, there will be terrorist incidents,” Mr Gill had said.
Mr KPS Gill had underscored that the Khalistan supporters abroad were looking for a window of opportunity to return to Punjab and work on their separatist designs.
However, over the years they were not able to do so but with the presence of Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab, that window has opened leading to an influx of them from foreign countries. “Now with Aam Aadmi Party, there is an influx of them from foreign countries.
They think this is the opportunity which is very good for them and they would be able to create a big base from which to operate”, he had said. Mr Gill had also asserted that AAP has ‘unwittingly’ provided a platform to radical NRIs who have a sole agenda of spreading terrorism in the state.
He had also stated that if the Bhartiya Janata Party and Shiromani Akali Dal or even Congress come to power, it will be difficult for the radical elements to revive themselves but the same cannot be said about AAP if it wins the elections.
AAP has time and again been accused of promoting extremist forces like Khalistan Liberation Force in Punjab.
On February 16, 2022 during an interview with news agency ANI, former Aam Aadmi Party leader and poet Dr. Kumar Vishwas called out Chief Minister of Delhi, Mr Arvind Kejriwal, for extending support to separatists. He said that at one point, Mr Kejriwal claimed that he would either become Chief Minister of Punjab or will become first Prime Minister of an independent nation (Khalistan). Dr Vishwas was talking about Mr Kejriwal’s campaigns in the Punjab assembly elections.
He said Mr Kejriwal should understand Punjab is not just a state but an emotion. He said, “Amidst this, a person like him, whom I suggested not to take support from the separatists and fringe elements who were linked to the Khalistani movement in the last elections, and he told me not to worry. When I asked him how he would become CM, he told me the formula as well.
He is on the same path. Even if he is not on the same path, he will use a puppet to control the government.” After violence led by supporters of pro-Khalistan leader Amritpal Singh in Ajnala, where they were seen brandishing swords, the Punjab Police was quick to surrender as it took back the FIR registered against Amritpal Singh’s close aid Lovepreet Singh Toofan.
During the hours-long standoff and eventual takeover of the police station, the Punjab Police was compelled to give in to the demands of Khalistani Amritpal Singh. On February 21, Amritpal Singh had issued a veiled threat to the Home Minister of India, Shri Amit ShahJi,
saying that the latter will have to face a similar fate as that of Indira Gandhi. “Indira tried to suppress, what happened? Now Amit Shah can fulfill his wish and see”, he said. Under the leadership of CM Mr Bhagwant Mann the state of Punjab is left in utter chaos and anarchy while he claims that the law and order are in absolute control.
It is really intriguing that the fugitive Amritpal Singh has disappeared from Punjab’s Jalandhar district on March 18 following a 25-km police chase, a part of which was livestreamed on Facebook from his SUV.
Since then, the 30-year-old head of Waris Punjab De (heirs of Punjab) has travelled across several districts, switching vehicles and changing appearances, before he reportedly crossed over to adjoining states of Haryana, Delhi, Uttarakhand and UP is now stated to be trying to sneak into Nepal according to certain media reports. As the countrywide crackdown launched by the State and Central governments against Amritpal Singh and his supporters continues, the Punjab Police has claimed that the self-styled Sikh separatist leader was raising a nascent militia called Anandpur Khalsa Fauj (AKF) for the creation of Khalistan, a sovereign Sikh state.
Moreover as per certain media reports, huge funds running into several crores of rupees, out of the money laundered from the recent Delhi Excise Scam, were routed through Hawala Channels into various accounts of the Khalstani ideologue Amritpal Singh.
On the other hand in a preliminary inquiry, the CBI has found that the feedback unit (FBU) set up by the Delhi government to check corruption allegedly collected “political intelligence”. On the other hand, the Lt Governor of Delhi has noted that there was an attempt by the Delhi government to create an agency (FBU) outside its mandate.
He also wrote that the agenda for creating the feedback unit was tabled without the cabinet’s approval and it (FBU) was being headed by Delhi CM, Mr Arvind Kejriwal, and Deputy CM, Mr Manish Sisodia.
In view of the facts and circumstances explained above, it is most respectfully prayed that the above matters, which are directly related to sovereignty and integrity of our beloved motherland, may kindly be assigned to the National Investigation Agency for registration of appropriate FIRs under the National Security Act, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and IPC.
After investigation if the prosecutable and incontrovertible evidence for the above offences including sedition is found, all the offenders may be subjected to face trial before the court of law for bringing them to justice, in the overall national interest.
