FIR against Tribune scribe a new low in Modi’s Bharat : Dal Khalsa

Punjab update

Jalandhar- Dal Khalsa has termed the FIR against Tribune scribe a new low in Narendra Modi’s Bharat. The organization has sought cancellation of the “illegal” FIR.

Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said the FIR against Rachna Khaira for exposing serious flaws in Aadhaar system was designed to suppress the rightful voice of the independent media. At the same time, it’s a clear signal how the country was being practically transformed into autocratic regime.
