Mansa: Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader, visited the parents of slain singer Sidhu Moose Wala in Punjab’s Mansa district today and offered condolences.
Rahul Gandhi landed at Chandigarh airport this morning, and without any wait, went straight to the singer’s native village. Several party leaders accompanied him, including Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Partap Singh Bajwa, former deputy Chief Minister OP Soni, and others.
Amid the visit of Rahul Gandhi, security has been beefed up in the vicinity of the residence of Moose Wala’s family. Sidhu Moose Wala was killed by attackers in Mansa district on May 29.
At the time when Moose Wala was shot dead, Rahul Gandi was abroad. He had a cordial relationship with Congress. He had joined the party in December 2021 and fought the assembly elections unsuccessfully from the Mansa seat in the 2022 Punjab assembly polls.
Political leaders of all parties are visiting Sidhu Moose Wala’s home to pay their condolences. The party tweeted

Senior Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa had written to Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann asking him to “transfer the murder case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the National Investigation Agency (NIA) so that the victim’s family members get justice at the earliest.”
