New Delhi, FEB 16: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh today called for giving a befitting reply to Pakistan for the attack on CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama by terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad, saying the time for peace talks is over and they should be taught a lesson.
Moving a resolution for condemning the terror attack and adjournment of the House, he accused Pakistan of playing a double game, saying "their prime minister (Imran Khan) is talking peace and the general (Qamar Javed Bajwa) is talking war."
Members of the House, cutting across party lines, paid tributes to the CRPF personnel killed in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, and observed two-minutes silence in their memory.
"Enough is enough... The time for talking peace is over and I think it is time to teach them a lesson, and I hope the Government of India will understand this point and will take it up," the chief minister said.
"What is the double game being played at their national level, earning Sikhs sympathies by saying these things and on the other hand, killing people in the country," the Punjab chief minister asked, adding "among those killed in terror attack were four sewaks of Guru Nanak Dev."
"I have said many a time that if you (Pakistan) want to shake hands with India, which their PM says every day, then why do not you stop all these attacks," he asked.
Taking on the Pakistan Army Chief, Mr. Singh said if general Bajwa tried to do anything in Punjab, he would get a befitting response.
"Let their general Bajwa know. I want to say openly. You are a Punjabi and we are also Punjabi you dare to try anything in Punjab we will set you right," he warned
