Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh asked state Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday to “rein in” his advisers after two of them made “atrocious” comments recently on sensitive issues like Kashmir and Pakistan.

In a statement issued, Singh warned against such “atrocious and ill-conceived comments that were potentially dangerous to the peace and stability of the state and the country”.The chief minister, who has been at loggerheads with Sidhu in the past, trained his guns on the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief’s advisors.

He urged them to stick to giving advice to Sidhu and not speak on matters “of which they clearly had little or no knowledge and had no understanding of the implications of their comments”.

Singh was reacting to the reported remarks of Pyare Lal Garg, questioning his criticism of Pakistan, as well as an earlier statement made by Malwinder Singh Mali on Kashmir. Both of them were recently appointed by Sidhu as his advisors.In a recent social media post, Mali had waded into the issue of revocation of Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave a special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
