'Punjab, Delhi, Haryana police confrontation is example of what lies in future': P Chidambaram

New Delhi/IBNS: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Sunday slammed the police of states like Delhi, Punjab and Haryana for serving their "serving their political masters" and warned that the current confrontation between them is a vision of the future.

He called it an ultimate breakdown of federalism "that is already in peril".

In a tweet on Sunday Chidambaram said: "This was bound to happen some day. Punjab, Delhi and Haryana police confrontation is an example of what lies in store in the future."

"Police serving their respective political masters will lead to the ultimate breakdown of federalism that is already in peril," he said.

Chidambaram said he had warned about the same when the Assam police had arrested Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani over a tweet critical of PM Modi.

"The 'autonomy'  of each State police force must stop at the border of another State and the police of the first State must take the consent of the other State. Otherwise, federalism will be dead and buried," he added.
