According to Punjab minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer, Simranjit Singh Mann of Sangrur should really apologise for referring to the great freedom fighter Bhagat Singh as a “terrorist” on Friday.
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) chief and Lok Sabha MP from Sangrur, Simranjit Singh Mann, has once again been into controversy for calling the great freedom fighter Bhagat Singh as a “terrorist”. Punjab health minister and AAP leader Gurmeet Singh Meet has slammed Simranjit Mann over his derogatory remark.
In a Tweet in Punjabi language, minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer said, “A newly elected Member of Parliament has insulted the sacrifices made by legendary martyr Shaheed Bhagat Singh Ji, who laid down his life for the independence of the country.”
“ਸ਼ਹੀਦ -ਏ-ਆਜ਼ਮ ਸਰਦਾਰ ਭਗਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਸਾਡੇ ਨੌਜਵਾਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਰੋਲ ਮਾਡਲ ਹਨ । ਉਹਨਾਂ ਦੀ ਕੁਰਬਾਨੀ ਬੇਮਿਸਾਲ ਹੈ । ਸਾਨੂੰ ਸਭ ਨੂੰ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਤੇ ਫ਼ਖਰ ਹੈ । ਸ਼ਹੀਦ ਭਗਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਦਹਿਸ਼ਤਗਰਦ ਕਹਿਣਾ ਸ਼ਰਮਨਾਕ ਅਤੇ ਕਰੋੜਾਂ ਭਾਰਤੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਪੰਜਾਬੀਆਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਭਾਵਨਾਂਵਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਸੱਟ ਮਾਰਨਾਂ ਹੈ ।” #ShaheedBhagatSingh
“The people of our country are able to breathe today in a free nation because Sardar Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev sacrificed their lives at a very young age for our country. Unfortunately, Simranjit Singh Mann has no respect for a national hero, ” said Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer.
What was the statement given by Simranjit Singh Mann?
While talking to the media personnel in Karnal on Thursday, when asked about his past referral to Bhagat Singh as a “terrorist”, Sangrur MP and SAD (Amritsar) chief Simranjit Singh Mann said, “Sardar Bhagat Singh had killed an Amritdhari Sikh constable Channan Singh, he hurdled a bomb into the national assembly then. Now you tell me, was he a terrorist or not?”
Now the Aam Aadmi Party has lashed out at Simranjit Singh Mann for his controversial remarks on Bhagat Singh. Minister Hayer even added that the AAP is a democratic party, and if needed, a legal action will be initiated against Simranjit Singh Mann.
