punjab: BSF’s enhanced presence will make us stronger: Amarinder | India News – Times of India


CHANDIGARH: Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday endorsed the Centre’s decision on enhanced jurisdiction of the Border Security Force, in contrast to the stand of the Punjab government.
“Our soldiers are being killed in Kashmir. We’re seeing more & more weapons & drugs being pushed by Pak-backed terrorists into Punjab. BSF’s enhanced presence & powers will only make us stronger. Let’s not drag central armed forces into politics,” Amarinder was quoted in a tweet by his media adviser Raveen Thukral.
“Partisan considerations can’t & shouldn’t dictate our stand on issues of national security. I’d said that at the time of the 2016 surgical strikes & am saying it again. We’ve to rise above politics when India’s security is at stake, as it is now,” added another tweet by Thukral.
