Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has cautioned about Pakistan's sinister plan it has been pushing illegal drugs and weapons into India amid the farmers' protest to cause a disturbance in the border state and demanded a probe into the matter.
The Punjab chief minister has learnt from the security forces that more and more illegal drugs weapons are being pushed into India from across the border and he feels there's a deep conspiracy behind it which needs to be probed, reports Times Now's Gurpreet.
Amarinder Singh stated that he has been warning the Central government for a long time that "Pakistan is trying to infiltrate". He further warned the authorities saying that Pakistan has sleeper cells that they can activate and "a disturbed Punjab suits Pakistan's policy".
I have a hostile country on my western border. On the north of us, we have China. These two countries are going to collude. About 20 per cent of the Indian army belongs to this area and we can't allow their morale to go down. I think we should be cautious in our choice of putting out news which should not create a situation where the morale of our troops goes down," Punjab CM told news agency ANI.
'Spurt in cross-border smuggling since farmers' agitation'
Amarinder Singh said Pakistan has been sending weapons through drones and is also trying to cause infiltration. There has been a spurt in "drone delivery" since the farmers' agitation started and "weapons, money, and heroine" have been coming in, he added.
The Chief Minister said he met the Union Home Minister Amit Shah in November after the farmers' agitation moved to Delhi borders to convey his concerns about Pakistan's attempts to cause a disturbance.
"I went during to see the Home Minister when everyone started making big news about farmers' struggle to discuss the issue that has taken place. Since the farmers' struggle started in October, the number of weaponry that is coming to Punjab (from Pakistan) has increased.
It is drones that are bringing it in. That was what was concerning me because those drones that bring weapons are meant for something. They are not sent as a present here. We may capture 30 drones, but there are 20-30 that may get past us, to their objectives," he said.
