Cops Linked to Drug Trade: AAP MLA’s Explosive Allegations

In a political bombshell, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh has stirred controversy with allegations linking senior party leader Raghav Chadha to officers of the Punjab Police allegedly involved in supporting the drug trade in Amritsar. The accusations, made during a rally in Amritsar, have sparked outrage and calls for investigation from opposition parties in Punjab.

Serious Allegations Unleashed

Singh, a former IPS officer turned MLA from Amritsar North, made the damning accusations during a “mega rally” organized to support AAP’s candidate for the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat. In a widely circulated video, Singh claimed that certain police officers, whom he referred to as Chadha’s “blue-eyed boys,” were facilitating the drug trade in the region.

Singh asserted, “Whatever drugs are sold in Amritsar are of the police… The same people are still there… There is one SP and there is one DSP who look after the civil lines area in Amritsar North and are the blue-eyed boys of Raghav Chadha.”

Political Fallout and Opposition’s Fury

The allegations have not only put AAP in a tight spot but have also emboldened opposition parties to demand immediate action. Senior Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa called for a thorough investigation into Singh’s claims, emphasizing the need for accountability. Congress MLA Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa urged the Election Commission of India to intervene, demanding the registration of an FIR and a comprehensive probe.

Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira questioned Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s silence on the matter, raising concerns about the government’s commitment to combating drug-related issues. Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia seized the opportunity to criticize AAP, highlighting the alleged failures of the party’s governance.

AAP’s Response and Political Tensions

Meanwhile, AAP has yet to officially respond to the allegations, and Raghav Chadha, the focal point of the controversy, remains unreachable for comment. The party’s silence on the matter has fueled speculation and intensified the political storm brewing in Punjab, especially with the Lok Sabha polls looming on the horizon.

Calls for Action and Accountability

As pressure mounts on the AAP government, questions arise about its commitment to tackling drug trafficking and maintaining law and order in Punjab. With the allegations casting a shadow over Chadha’s leadership and AAP’s credibility, the need for a swift and transparent investigation is paramount to restore public trust and uphold the rule of law.

The explosive allegations made by AAP MLA Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh have reignited debates about the nexus between law enforcement agencies and illicit activities in Punjab. As political parties trade accusations and demands for accountability grow louder, the fate of Raghav Chadha and the AAP government hangs in the balance, awaiting a resolution to the unfolding crisis.
