"Shocked to hear about the horrible murder of a young Kabaddi player in vill Dhilwan in Kapurthala. They knocked on the door and said to the parents, "Aah maar ditta tuhada Sher putt," displaying the murderers' level of courage. It's not just this one instance. The SAD leader posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that Punjab is experiencing a complete Jungle Raj and that homicides, looting, snatchings, and robberies are becoming routine occurrences.


It has been established that @BhagwantMann cannot control the situation, he continued. With immediate effect, he should resign.
