Punjab elections are in news for different reasons. The first news came, with the controversial release of Bollywood movie-Udta Punjab, in June last year. There was conspiracy theory floating at that time too; like which party is running the drug peddling business in Punjab. The opposition left no chance, and stooped to a new low; by making drug abuse a major political issue.
Hindu reported that giving a new political twist to the Udta Punjab controversy, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani ‘ alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party had given money to the makers of the film.

What about Khalistan then?
It is alleged that drug mafia and terrorism in Pakistan is run with support of Pakistan. Then we guess, the nation wants to know why AAP political members have been meeting Khalistan movement leaders.

Another report in Zeenews, showed the poster urged people to celebrate Bhindranwale’s birthday on February 12.
Besides the Khalistan movement spearhead and the Delhi CM (who was in a turban), the poster featured Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh, party’s Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur, AAP MP Bhagwant Mann and Faridkot MP Professor Sadhu Singh.
The message in Punjabi says: “On February 12, the AAP will observe the birth anniversary of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. On this day, all party workers should visit the nearest Gurdwaras and pledge to walk the path shown by Sants.” It further says the poster was issued by the AAP, Punjab, and “Bhindranwale, a lion. We will fulfil your dream”.
And it doesn’t stop here.
Our honorable PM Narendra Modi is under threat from Khalistan leaders. Only yesterday, he was under security threat on his visit to Patna. It was the grand occasion of Guru Gobind Singh’s 25th Birth Anniversary.
With assembly polls in Punjab round the corner, the state is now facing threats from Khalistan elements, which even though few in number, are still active and reportedly getting support from foreign-based intelligence agencies like Pakistan‘s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Speaking exclusively to ANI, the Chairman of the All-India Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) M S Bitta warned political factions in the state to protect themselves from the temptation of vote bank politics, which can be used by these foreign agencies to entice parties.
“All political parties must refrain from indulging in any kind of vote-bank politics, especially in such sensitive times when the polls are near. The ISI in Pakistan doesn’t have a better moment than this to strike and make parties forget their morals, thus creating unrest,” Bitta said.
Further asserting that no political parties must associate themselves with Khalistani elements whatsoever, he added that the Centre and intelligence agencies must take charge and ensure that nothing untoward happens in the state.
