Punjab BJP chief Sunil Jakhar condemns attack on Kangana Ranaut by CISF constable, calling it 'most unfortunate' and violence as a means of dissent unacceptable.

In a statement, Jakhar said any form of violence as a means of expressing dissent was unacceptable and needed condemnation.

“What is even more concerning is that a person wearing a security uniform indulged in such an unlawful violent act. The statements of Kangana may be insensitive, but a security staffer resorting to physical assault sets a wrong precedent,” the state BJP president said.

Jakhar also questioned the timing of the incident.

“The timing makes the incident curious. It comes at a time when Punjab is undergoing an undercurrent of overt radical posturing,” he said. HTC
