Bathinda/Faridkot: Addressing a ‘Halke vich Captain’ (Captain in constituency) programme in Bathinda, Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said that reports of the Badal family seeking extra security cover, more than the Z-plus that it was already getting, shows that they are afraid of public wrath.
“I have always been saying that the way they treated Punjab and the Punjabis, they will have to run for their life. They have already accepted and admitted it today by asking for extra security from the Centre,” he said.
Suggesting that instead of seeking extra security cover for himself, son and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal and his brother-in-law and Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal should better ask for forgiveness from the Punjabis.
Meanwhile, during a similar programme in Faridkot, Capt Amarinder promised that Congress will provide free treatment to cancer patients in Punjab if voted to power.
The Lok Sabha MP from Amritsar said hundreds of families in the Malwa region have been devastated by the disease due to loss of life and huge expenses incurred on its treatment.
Speaking to people in Kotkapura Assembly segment during ‘Halke vich Captain’ (Captain in constituency) programme here, the PCC chief also said that his government would also try to find a long-term solution to this problem.
