CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) senior leader and Leader of Opposition (LoP) Harpal Singh Cheema and Garhshankar MLA Jai Krishan Singh Rouri have strongly condemned the blind murder of Aam Aadmi Party leader and booth in-charge Paramjit Pamma at his native village Ranewal under the Nawanshahr constituency, terming it a plain political assassination.

In a statement issued from the party headquarters on Tuesday, Harpal Singh Cheema and Jai Krishan Singh Rouri, expressing their deep shock over the blind murder of the AAP leader, offered heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family of Paramjit Pamma and assured to buy justice to the family and exemplary punishment for the killers.

Harpal Singh Cheema alleged that a local leader of the ruling Congress Party and some police personnel owing allegiance to him were ‘directly’ involved in the heinous crime assassinating Paramjit Pamma.

The AAP leader has sought a time-bound judicial inquiry into the matter, saying that it was the second such brutal killing in Nawanshahr district within a week. The assassination of Manpreet Mangat, a journalist from Rahon, was the outcome of the alleged collusion between the politicians and the mafia, as Mangat, an upright journalist, had been raising his voice against the sand mafia active in the region. Similarly, Paramjit Pamma had been involving in the party activities and was raising his voice against highhandedness of the local leaders, which had annoyed them to the hilt.

Jai Krishan Singh Rouri on the occasion alleged that Paramjit Pamma had already been implicated in a false and frivolous case by a local Congress leader, adding that the brutal murder of AAP leader Paramjit Pamma was repeatedly crushed under the moving jeep, which corroborated the assassins were professional killers, allegedly hires by the local Congress leader.

Cheema and Rouri said that such heinous crimes were being perpetrated upon the people of the state, which proved there was no rule of law and that gangs of criminals were having their way without the scantest fear of the law, while Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, who also holds the Home Department, was engaged in dinner diplomacy at his sprawling Siswa farmhouse, alleging that law and order machiney had gone for toss in the state, leaving the people to fend for themselves.
