Jalandhar: A day after ex- cabinet minister Avtar Henry lashed out at Jagmeet Brar, two of Brar’s close leaders Dr Harbans Lal and Vijay Sathi on Wednesday cornered Henry on ‘dual nationality case’ and for being a blind slave of Capt Amarinder Singh.
In a joint press statement, both the leaders said, “Before giving unwanted advice to other people, Henry should find a mirror and check his status. A man with fake passports and Akali partnerships in non permit bus operations like Henry has no moral right to advise a man like Jagmeet Brar”.
Both the leaders said that Henry should clarify his stand on dual nationality and on travelling to UK as a minister in Capt’s cabinet to seek nationality benefits, forget Punjabi are you even an Indian national? Both Harbans and Sathi released the copies of Henry’s UK passport and NHS details, asking him to first become an Indian national before advising Jagmeet Brar.
Sathi said, “Once again a ‘Chamcha of Captain’ was sent out to make noise. A man who is known land grabber and facing a case for a fake passport is now giving advice on self respect”.
Dr Harbans Lal also said that Jagmeet Brar is a national leader and Henry is not even known in his own constituency. “Henry should focus on pouring adulation on Capt Amarinder but this too wont help”, he said.
He added that Brar is the only leader in Punjab who has taken up the cause of farmer suicides and drugs from Parliament to the streets, he has not looted Punjab to gift houses to special friends, and blocked CBI probes on drugs like corrupt Capt Amarinder Singh. “It seems that Henry has lost his mental balance after following his role model Capt Amarinder or he is talking on behalf of his secret Akali business partners in bus permits”, they said.
Further, they said that Jagmeet Brar has a tall stature in Punjab politics and he has repeatedly stated that he can talk to AAP leadership on an agenda of saving farmers from suicides and get free and fair probe on drugs. “We were open to talking to anyone. Our campaign on these issues will carry on”, they added.
Sathi and Harbans Lal also gave an open challenge to Henry for a debate on various issues and advised him to focus his limited knowledge on trying to help Punjabis instead of trying to get publicity by acting like one of Captain’s pets and said, “First remove Captain’s leash and stand up like a man for Punjab then talk of self respect”.
