Former Punjab Cabinet Minister and Ex MLA Dr. Harbans Lal has made a scathing counterattack on Punjab Cong VP &Kapurthala MLA RanaGurjeet on his comments about an alleged tattoo on Jagmeet Brar’s arm.In a statement issued jointly with two other former MLAs TarsemJodhan and Vijay Sathi they said “RanaGurjeet is a publicly known gold medalist chamcha of Amarider Singh - his latest statement is nothing but a stunt to prove his loyalty to his royal master. If he had gone to Rio olympics with Raninder Singh maybe India would have won a gold medal in Chamchagiri"“Jagmeet Singh Brar has brought to light facts and addresses which are also mentioned in EDs investigation, and there is a lot more information which will be released in the coming days. How long will Captain avoid answering these facts? Will he now send KewalDhillon and BIS Chahalalso ?”
Reacting to the baseless allegation on Brar towing the Akali line they said “Today Jagmeet Singh Brar has become a beacon of hope for all those well-wishers of Punjab who are fed up of the drug dealing Alkalis and Hawala Dealmakers in Congress - he has strongly fought the Badals all his life, please get a mental checkup done for even saying something so laughable”Vijay Sathi added "Brar filed a PIL against drugs in 2013 and Captain protected Majithia by stopping the CBI probe. Tell us what your share is as the ‘muneem’ of the Captain-Majithia-Sukhbir partnership?” They said “For us and our leader, Punjab is a priority not our personal political interests and we have not sold our souls and self respect for a few gold coins thrown by a king. You may owe gratitude and loyalty to a false king we owe our loyalty to a man who has fought for the people of Punjab for 3 decades - he was fighting for Punjab in parliament when you were selling illegal alcohol in Punjab in partnership with PontyChadha” According to sources Jagmeet Singh Brar is considering legal action including a defamation suit against RanaGurjeet and others over the “Khalistan Tattoo” remark, when asked about this TarsemJodhan said “Jagmeet Singh Brar is a staunch nationalist and is open to any examination to prove this but what about Captain making speeches under a Khalistan flag and what about his visits to Khalistanisympathisers as CM in 2005, and his memorandum to UN Secy General for Khalistan"
