Chandigarh: With many videos offering a reward on the head of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his (son) Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal going viral across social media, the Punjab government has decided to come down hard on those posting such material on social networking sites and video sharing platforms. The Punjab Govt is said to be looking into the legal action which can be taken against those posting such videos and sharing them.
Several videos have been posted online offering cash rewards, one in which 10 Lakh rs was offered to anyone who can “bring the head of Badal for his interference in religious affairs for political gains”. In another video, a woman warns people against attending the Akali Dal’s “Sadbhavna” rallies stating that the rallies will “definitely be bombed, killing not just Badals but hundreds of others”.
Official sources have now started monitoring the internet and have said these videos are illegal and meant to intimidate people. “Since most of these videos are uploaded in Western countries, we are contemplating taking help from international agencies” said a top government source.
