Chandigarh, August 14, 2020: In what would come as a major embarrassment for Government of Punjab, a Khalistan flag was hoisted on Moga Deputy Commissioner’s office on Friday, a day before India’s Independence Day.
What is shocking is that the incident happened amid tight security around government buildings in run up to Independence Day and this major security lapse shows that the Punjab Police isn’t as alert as it should be.
Reacting to the incident, Lok Sabha MP Ravneet Singh Bittu tweeted, “The poison being spread by Pannu and Jathedar Sahib has shown its effect in Moga where two persons removed the Tricolor flag & hoisted the Khalistani flag above the DC office. The law should arrest these anti-national elements and put a mark of "TRAITORS" on their forehead. Now is the time to clearly differentiate between those who love this country and those who want to destroy it.”
