Former RAW chief warns against misgovernance in Punjab: State cannot be ruled from Delhi

Chandigarh: Former Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief Amarjit Singh Dulat has warned against misgovernance in a “sensitive border state” like Punjab and asserted that the state cannot be “ruled from Delhi”.

Dulat, however, said he did not predict the resurgence of militancy in Punjab but stressed that there was a need for a “sympathetic” attitude towards the state.
“I firmly believe that neither Punjab nor Kashmir can be ruled from Delhi. People are angry with this. Even though Bhagwant Mann is a good person, he is not capable. Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi Chief Minister) cannot run Punjab.”
