Sukhpal khaira accuse CM. The leader of opposition in Punjab Vidhan Sabha Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Wednesday accused Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh of allying with Akalis and preventing to take action against corrupt Akalis who have looted the state.
While addressing the legal fraternity at Batala District Court Complex and then at newly inaugurated party office at Batala, Khaira said that there is loss of faith amongst the Ministers and MLAs in their CM as he was eating his own words of putting the Akalis behind bars for their misdeeds. Khaira said that he was surprised to read a statement of Minister Navjot Sidhu on Wednesday, who has demanded that the department of police be given to him or in other words he be made the Home Minister of Punjab. While doing so Navjot Sidhu claimed that if he was made the Home Minister not a single drug dealer or mafia would be spared and if he failed to do so he will quit politics, quoted Khaira. This sensational statement of Navjot Sidhu is nothing but a direct attack on the capabilities of Captain Amarinder Singh as Home Minister of Punjab, stated Khaira. It also shows that Sidhu is of the firm opinion that the drug menace has not been curbed in Punjab till now and only if he was given the control of police can drugs be wiped out from the state, said Khaira.
“This is not the first incident when his own partymen have questioned the claims of Captain Amarinder Singh. Recently, Amargarh MLA Surjit Singh Dhiman had publically confessed that the Congress government had failed to control drugs which were available in abundance in every nook and corner of state,” said Khaira. Thereafter, 50 Congress MLAs led by Sukhjinder Randhawa gave a signed memorandum to the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh for stringent action against drug mafia, but to no avail, claimed Khaira. It is a matter of record that Parminder Singh Pinky MLA Ferozepur had publically termed the Captain Amarinder Singh government being run by bureaucrats and babudom. Pinky had stated that there is no respect for elected representatives in the eyes of Punjab government, said Khaira. He further stated that Minister Charanjit Channi during a TV show couple of days back confessed that the government had failed to curb the corruption in Punjab and if the situation continues to be so he would rather resign as a minister. Therefore, AAP believes that Captain Amarinder Singh is not only inaccessible and controlled by a small coterie but also lacks the will to deliver good governance in Punjab, said Khaira. The LoP in the same breath also questioned the integrity of Minister Navjot Sidhu that either he should take some concrete action on his observations or he should stop making rebellious statements, as he has failed to do anything valid on his allegations of cable mafia earlier. While appealing to the lawyers to support AAP candidate Major General Suresh Khajuria, Khaira said that both Congress and Akali-BJP alliance could not find a local person to represent the people of Gurdaspur and have called the outsiders to fight election. He said that AAP candidate Khajuria has served the nation for 40 years and will continue to serve the people in different capacity after winning the election.
