Earlier on Thrusday, Bhagwant Mann hit out at the BJP-led central government over the non-inclusion of the state’s tableau for the Republic Day parade, alleging the Centre has discriminated against the states ruled by the Aam Aadmi Party.
The Punjab Chief Minister said on Wednesday that, like last year, this year too, Punjab’s tableau for January 26 will not be included.
“The Centre has discriminated against Punjab,” said Mann, adding that both Punjab and Delhi are not on the list.
Addressing a press conference at Punjab Bhawan in Chandigarh after visiting Fatehgarh Sahib, Mann said they received a letter from the Centre on Wednesday, which shows that Punjab’s tableau has not been included.
CM Mann also claimed that the decision of the centre shows how much “poison” it has in its heart against the people of Punjab.
Taking to ‘X’, CM Mann wrote, “Today, the value of the martyrdom of Punjabis by the BJP government at the centre has been presented to 3 crore Punjabis through the media. This time again, the tableau of Punjab was not included in the 26th January parade…we sent 3 subjects… 1. History of Martyrs of Punjabis 2. History of Mai Bhago Ji 3. Priceless heritage of Punjab.” (ANI)
