Chandigarh – Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira has said the way the state government mischievously tabled the Justice Narang Commission report on the last day of the Budget session, only goes to show that Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has completely lost the willpower to fight corruption in high places.Khaira said it is a matter of record, that Justice Narang had given his report to the Punjab government on August 10 of last year, on which Captain Amarinder Singh had directed the Chief Secretary to take action within two weeks. Khaira said unfortunately instead of taking action on the report, the Chief Secretary under political pressure pushed the report under the carpet for almost eight months. Khaira said it was only on his raising the issue in the Vidhan Sabha that the Chief Minister had to table the report on the floor of the House, but as stated earlier mischievously to avoid any discussion.Khaira said the Justice Narang Commission was primarily formed to give a clean chit to the tainted ex-minister Rana Gurjit Singh as he had been a major source of funding to Captain Amarinder Singh during the past many years. Khaira said that Aam Aadmi Party had immediately brought out the connection of Justice Narang’s son with the family of Rana Gurjit being their counsel in the High Court in 2017. Khaira said it was an open secret, that Justice Narang Commission was constituted to give a clean chit to the former tainted minister. He said despite the premeditated and colluding investigations carried out by Jutsice Narang to favour the tainted minister, he disclosed many vital links between corrupt wheeler-dealers and the tainted minister.Khaira dared the Chief Minister to order a time-bound investigation between tainted Rana Gurjit Singh and the scamster contractor Gurinder Singh with regards to Rs five crore exchange of bribery. In case, the Chief Minister fails to render justice in the mega corruption scandal, it would be presumed that he has totally lost the will power to fight corruption in high places, he said. He announced that he would be challenging the bogus and premeditated clean chit in the Narang Commission report in the Punjab and Haryana High Court shortly, to seek a CBI probe, so that the powerful corrupt and guilty are punished.
