In a live address, he highlighted the rampant sale and purchase of drugs in the state while expressing dismay at the passive stance of the governments.

Addressing the Sikh community, Giani Harpreet Singh emphasized the need to address the critical situation where Sikhs are facing violence abroad. He reminded the audience of Punjab's historical legacy, known for giving birth to brave warriors such as Baba Banda Singh ji and the valiant Baba Deep Singh ji. Despite their heroic contributions, he lamented that the current society often perceives them as mere bandits, overlooking their moral standing.

Giani Harpreet Singh underscored the emergence of a troubling phenomenon in Punjab, characterized by the proliferation of gangsterism and target killings.

Giani Harpreet Singh's outspoken statement serves as a call to action, urging the governments to address the pressing issues and take decisive measures against the rising tide of criminality.
