Chandigarh, Aug 28, 2017: In the wake of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh sentencing, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday said there was “total normalcy” in his state and the forces are alert to check any untoward incident.
“There is total normalcy. Our forces are alert and will not let any untoward incident happen,” Singh told media after a CBI court sentenced Ram Rahim Singh to 10 years in prison for rape and criminal intimidation of two female disciples.
He said he is constantly reviewing the law and order situation in Punjab and also called up Defence Minister Arun Jaitley and thanked him for prompt support from the Army.
The Chief Minister said that the court’s decision must be accepted by the people and peace must prevail.
