Shoe Attack At Parkash Singh Badal Leaves Him Bleeding


A man reportedly threw a shoe at Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday in Rattakhera village of his constituency Lambi. The shoe did hit the Punjab CM and even shattered a glass in his hand.

Police sources claimed that Gurbachan Singh is the brother of hardliner Sikh Amrik Singh Ajnala who is "self-styled" parallel jathedar of Takht Keshgarh Sahib. Muktsar senior superintendent of police Dhruman H Nimbale said, "CM Badal was just getting up after completing his address when a shoe was hurled, the accused was arrested and a case has been registered". "Don't know whose conspiracy is this", said Badal after the incident.

Asserting that the manifesto lacks credibility, he asked why should people believe Capt Amarinder, who had promised jobs in his 2002 manifesto but did exactly opposite after he became the chief minister.

Congress believes situation in state is volatile and Election Commission should take cognisance to such incidents at the same time not leaving an opportunity to hit out at the Badal's.

The Raptors, in second place in the Eastern Conference, lost consecutive games for the first time since November 20 and 21. Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, the league's leader in triple-doubles, was ejected from the game in the third quarter.

Badal is expected to contest from the Lambi constituency while his son, Sukhbir Singh Badal might stand from the Jalalabad.

"Our opponents are scared to talk about peace and development as everyone can see the performance of the SAD-BJP government on peace, communal harmony and development fronts", he said, adding as a father figure, he will never be provoked or desisted from his path of service to the people. "Nothing will stop me from following this path shown by the great Gurus", he said.

It was the first day of Shiromani Akali Dal chief's campaigning from his home turf Jalalabad. "Now it is turn of the people to vote for SAD", Badal said.
