Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday accused the Centre and the Punjab government of "spreading panic" in the state.
Senior leader Phoolka alleged people were being "terrorised" even when the situation was "not war-like".
"There is a situation of terror in Punjab and people of border areas are being forced to migrate leaving behind their livestock," he said.
"Neither there is a war nor any war-like situation then why are people being terrorised?" he asked.
Till now, more than 950 villages have been vacated by the administration.
Questioning the government's move, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann asked why only the Punjabis were being forced to migrate.
"Rajasthan and Gujarat too share border with Pakistan,then why only Punjabis are being forced to migrate?" he asked.
The AAP leaders also called upon the party workers to help people evacuated from the border areas.
The party has also started a helpline (+918437791773) in this regard.
