Punjab Congress today blasted the claims of the Akali-BJP government that Punjab was the “safest state” in the country as recently claimed by the state goverment on the floor of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha.In a statement the party general secretary and Dhuri MLA Arvind Khanna said, this is high time that the government came out of the denial mode and accepted that the law and order was becoming a serious problem in the state and it needed to be sorted out at an urgent priority.He said, it is not the matter of statistics that the government is trying to seek solace from but the actual fear factor prevailing across Punjab. "People are scared to come out of their homes after sunset", he pointed out, while adding, nobody feels safe in Punjab today. He said, people's confidence needs to be restored and it cannot be restored by merely taking recourse to statistical figures but actual action at the ground level which unfortunately is not being taken.The Congress general secretary pointed out, some recent incidents in the state like the gang-rape and subsequent suicide by a teen-aged in Samana, another rape in Bathinda, manhandling of an AIG to quote a few examples only do not reflect well on the law and order situation in the state. Khanna said, the issue with this government was that it was not prepared to accept that there was a problem. “As long as you don’t realise that there is a problem you will never try to find out the solution”, he observed, while asking the government that instead of going on denying everything and accusing the Congress of politicising these incidents, it should seriously work to solve the law and order problem in the state.
