Majitha MLA Bikram Singh Majithia and Congress leader Sukhjinder Raj Singh alias Lalli Majithia has indulged in Political rivalry after an incident of humiliation of father-son Dalits duo -Kashmir Singh and his son Jagrup Singh, residents of Bagga village in Amritsar. 

The alleged humiliation inflicted on the Dalits gave SAD an opportunity to portray itself as the `messiah’ of the socially backward and denouncing the Congress. Akalis accused Congress leaders of suppressing the voice of their Dalit workers.

Bikram also warned of a demonstration in front of Mattewal police station and a statewide agitation if action is not taken against the erring police officials by Tuesday.

On the other hand, Lalli Majithia alleged that Akalis were indulging in petty politics. “Let Bikram say anything, law will take its own course,” he said. Meanwhile, the National Commission for Schedule Castes (NCSC) has issued notice to ADGP (law and order) and Amritsar (rural) SSP to appear before its panel on Tuesday following a complaint of police inaction filed with the commission by the Punjab BJP.
