Sidhu Moosewala & 423 Other VIPs Lose Their Security! Big Step By Punjab Government

The AAP has always been vocal against the promotion of VIP culture, and its national convenor Arvind Kejriwal as well as all the other leaders have always openly condemned it. As per the reports, now the AAP government in Punjab has withdrawn the security of 424 VIPs and that even includes popular face of the Punjabi Music Industry and Congressman, Sidhu Moosewala. Those whose security cover has been withdrawn included many retired police officers, religious leaders and political figures.

Along with this, ten security personnel from the security of Dera Radha Soami, Beas and Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh’s security has also been withdrawn, whereas two personnel from Majitha MLA Ganeive Kaur Majithia’s (former Akali minister Bikram Singh Majithia’s wife) security have been withdrawn and one security personnel of former Punjab DGP PC Dogra has also been withdrawn.

He is the father-in-law of ADGP Gaurav Yadav, currently posted in the CMO. As per the reports, all withdrawn personnel will report to the special DGP at Jalandhar Cantt on Saturday. Notably, the security cover of the family of former Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Captain Amarinder Singh`s son Raninder Singh and the wife of Congress MLA Partap Singh Bajwawere has been withdrawn last month.

In April this year too, the Punjab government had ordered the withdrawal of security cover of 184 persons including former ministers and ex-MLAs, and other leaders. 

Recently, CM Mann had taken a decision against the VIP treatment in Jails. In a video posted on social media, the chief minister had said a network of gangsters operated from the jails of Punjab and his government was committed to taking the gangsters to task. He said when his government took charge, a special drive was launched to crack down on the use of mobile phones inside jails. He said 710 mobile phones have been seized during the drive. Action is being ensured against those using phones inside and those who supplied it inside, Mann said. Listing other initiatives taken by his government, Mann even claimed that his government has done in 50 days what was not done in 50 years.

Now with the withdrawal of security from 424 VIPs, once again the Mann govt of Punjab has cleared its stand against the promotion of VIP culture in the state.
