CM not in favour of probing Majithia, alleges Khaira
CHANDIGARH: A day after his show of strength with party MLAs on getting interim relief from the Punjab and Haryana High Court against summons by a Fazilka court in a drug case, Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira once again upped the ante against former revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia.Addressing a press conference here, he said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supports the demand of NGO, Lawyers for Human Rights International, that has filed a plea in the HC on Tuesday seeking directions to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to submit a status report on the alleged role of Majithia in the Jagdish Bhola drug case. The plea also seeks directions to the special task force (STF) set up by the Punjab government to probe Majithia’s role on the basis of statements of businessman Jagjit Singh Chahal before the ED.The HC has deferred the hearing on the NGO’s plea to November 28. Questioning the stand of CM Captain Amarinder Singh who has said “there is no evidence against Majithia to order a probe”, Khaira invited the 40 Congress MLAs who have reportedly signed a petition demanding a STF probe against Majithia to join the AAP “Come to us and let’s form a new government and unmask his role in the drug scandal,” he said.Showing photographs of Majithia with Bittu Aulakh, he dared SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal whose party men staged a dharna outside the house of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal just on basis of court summons on Tuesday to stage one outside Majithia’s house as he is not only seen in pictures with but also figures in their Statements before ED.
