New Delhi: The Moga molestation case rocked both houses of Parliament on Tuesday after Congress moved an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha to discuss the law and order situation in Punjab. However, Speaker Sumitra Maharaj, rejected the adjournment motion saying the issue can be discussed in zero hour.
The adjournment motion in Lok Sabha comes days after a teenaged girl was killed in Moga after being thrown off a moving bus by her molesters.
Former CM Captain Amarinder Singh who moved the adjournment motion met the parents of the girl in Moga on Monday, said that she was pushed off from a moving Orbit bus owned by the ruling Badal family, which reflected complete breakdown of the law and order situation in Punjab.
Singh had yesterday demanded imposition of President’s Rule in Punjab and alleged that the law and order machinery in the state has “total collapsed”.
“The law and order machinery of the state, which had gone bankrupt long back, has totally collapsed,” he had said after meeting the parents of the girl.
Singh had said that crimes of serious nature were regularly taking place in the state and “fear and insecurity are prevailing among people because of such incidents”.
“The SAD-BJP government has lost the will to govern and hence President’s Rule is the only option (left),” he said.
Singh had also condemned the “hush-hush” manner in which the Moga incident victim was cremated.
“The Badals behaved like the Britishers, who had cremated Bhagat Singh in the night to avoid public outburst,” he had said.
Amarinder had also said that he will be seeking time from the President to lead a Congress delegation to him to demand dismissal of the Parkash Singh Badal-led government and imposition of President’s Rule in Punjab at the earliest.
