Channi later said: â€œAll parties unanimously passed a resolution demanding that the Center reconsider its decision on BSF. If the Center does not give in, the parties decided at the meeting that an assembly session would be called soon. Moreover, since it is an infringement of the rights of the State, the parties have agreed to jointly launch any agitation against the movement of the Center.
The second resolution dealt with the agricultural laws of the Center and we will cancel them at the next session of the assembly. We are preparing to move the Supreme Court against the BSF decision. ”
After the marathon meeting, Channi and Sidhu held a joint press conference. Sidhu said the Center was weakening the country’s federal structure, creating â€œa state within a stateâ€. An attempt is underway to modify the definition of BSF. â€œIt is a political decision because the timing is questionable before the legislative elections. It is imposed on the state without its consent. They know that they (BJP) have no political support in Punjab because there is political outrage against them. That is why they are trying to spoil law and order. There is also no official explanation from the Center so far, “he said.
â€œThe BJP is trying to impose the President’s government on the Punjab under the guise of national security and will start harassing the Punjabis. Half of the state’s land has been submitted. What is the ulterior motive? is a state matter, â€Sidhu said, adding that there should be a Vidhan Sabha session. Sidhu added, â€œThe powers of persuasion of Vidhan Sabha and Parliament will be used. It was suggested that we appeal to the â€œbandhâ€, but we don’t want to disturb people. We will instead use Satyagraha to reclaim our rights. ”
Citing the example of West Bengal, Sidhu alleged that BSF daily “violates” the country’s constitutional provision in the name of security and that it is possible that cases of “torture, false cases, arbitrary detention and illegal arrests “are happening in Punjab. too much. He claimed that there are a number of cases in Bengal where BSF failed to notify local police after shooting incidents. Over the past five years, the government of Bengal had filed a total of 240 cases accusing BSF of extrajudicial torture, 60 cases of extrajudicial execution and eight cases of enforced disappearance.
Sidhu also tweeted: â€œOf these, in 33 cases, the NHRC recommended compensation to the victims or their relatives. If the UP police can illegally detain Priyanka Gandhi Ji for more than 60 hours without any valid reason, who guarantees an ordinary person if BSF detains him / her? ”
Channi said: “I want to assure people that positions do not matter to us, whether it is the position of chief minister or our ministers. For us, the interests of the state are paramount.” AAP leaders Bhagwant Mann, Aman Arora and Harpal Singh Cheema, Daljeet Cheema and Prem Singh Chandumajra of SAD, Simarjeet Singh Bains of LIP, as well as Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa attended the meeting.
Dhindsa said it had been decided that the special session of the Assembly would be broadcast live.
“Those whose emergency advice is compromised”
Without naming names, Sidhu alleged, â€œWho are the people dancing to their music?
Channi clarifies her meeting with hm
Reacting to the opposition’s accusation of the BSF’s decision coming shortly after Channi raised the issue of border security with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Channi said: agricultural laws and the Kartarpur Corridor with them. I said that we need to take steps to ensure that drugs are not allowed to enter across the border. It was a formality to meet them in a democratic system. The question has been twisted. Sealing the border is a demand that even SAD (Amritsar) has raised. Even Sukhbir Badal met with the interior minister recently. Did he come to an agreement on the GSTP votes in Delhi or on the BSF issue? â€Channi said.
Share details of meeting with Shah: Mann
Referring to recent meetings of CM Charanjit Singh Channi with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, PAA Punjab leader Bhagwant Mann said on Monday that Congress had “mortgaged the Punjab to the government of the Union â€.
Speaking after attending the all-party meeting on extending the jurisdiction of the BSF to the Center, Mann asserted: at the BSF … Therefore, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi should tell the people the truth of the Punjab, on the reasons why 50% of the Punjab was taken over by the BJP.
Mann said at the multi-party meeting that he “slammed” Punjab’s deputy chief minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, who also has the Home Office, for saying there was very little time. for a government coup. “I immediately corrected Randhawa Sahib and said the government was not overthrown, only you (MPs and ministers of Congress) were overthrown.”
SAD for the session to reject the movement

BJP boycotts multi-party meetings
The Punjab BJP boycotted the multi-party meeting on the issue of extending the jurisdiction of the BSF, saying the ruling would end the influx of drugs, prohibited items and illegal entry by foreigners.

He stated that the sole purpose of the notification is to improve the operational efficiency of the OSB and that after the detention of a suspect or the seizure of a consignment in the specified area, the OSB can only proceed to preliminary questioning and must hand the suspect over to the Punjabi police. in 24 hours.
