The Operation Blue Star – Long Peril – Auraiya Conspiracy, treats the story of how General Shabeg Singh took the popular peace movement back to violence and how the movement was finally subdued. As per the biography on the book front page, on 4 February 1990, the author led a squad of the Sikh Police Force in the operation. The Operation was stalled by the Joint Indo-Pak Martial Law of 1994, and was re-launched on 23 March 1998 with the help of two different countries and held two separate phases. The conspiracy was then supposed to cover the then Punjab Chief Minister Jagmohan, who is now in jail, as well as the then interior minister of Punjab, Ramesh Singh, the alleged mastermind of the operation, as the authors feel, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Lt. Gen. Hoshiar Singh Brar.
When Operation Blue Star operation was waged for the first time, the government was not told of their involvement except for a few of the security agencies. Otherwise, the government was kept in the dark about the operation. General Shabeg Singh didn’t even tell the then PM Narasimha Rao about the operation.
Operation Blue Star was planned by General Shabeg Singh who briefed the PM and the Home Minister about the operation. It was not an operation of the Army but of the Central Command, and the operation was planned by General Shabeg Singh alone. According to the author, after seeing the Akali leader bags over his head, Brigadier General Hoshiar Singh Brar, whom General Shabeg Singh had supervised, put two full bottles of whisky on the table, asked the intelligence personnel involved (both the Army and the IB) to be seated and told them that their mission was very important for the country. d2c66b5586
