BJP will not support SAD the protest against BSF on Indo-Pak borders. National BJP Leader from Punjab Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal said that the Drugs are social evils and all political parties should attack collectively to eradicate from its root. After a program in Sigma College of Nursing, Gill Road ludhiana with "India ke Wonder Girl" Janhavi from Haryana a 10 years old girl child which now read in 10th standard, which speaks well english with british and american accent, talking with the media persons here today, Grewal said that our party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will not support Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) for protest against BSF on drug smuggling on Indo-Pak borders.
He said that it's well known to each and every Indian that it was the Border Security Force that was fighting nation’s war against drugs. Grewal said the anti-national dharnas which were being organised by the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) were directed against the BSF and it was for the first time that a ruling party was trying to demoralise the very force which was protecting the nation. Grewal said that the Shiromani Akali Dal is responsible as it had been patronising the production and trade of the synthetic drugs in Punjab that was more dangerous and devastating. He said that Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) have ensured easy and smooth supply of synthetic drugs in Punjab that has caused havoc with our younger generation of the state. Grewal once again demanded the resignation of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and Punjab Government Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia after join Investigation before Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a case related to multi crore international drug racket.
Grewal said that Bikram Singh Majithia should resign forthwith following the precedent set by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leaders. Grewal also reminded that BJP stalwart Shri Lal Krishan Advani resigned after his name figured in Jain Hawala Case. He said that even in Punjab Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Minister Sr. Gulzar Singh Ranike resigned when his name figured in a scam. Grewal said that Sr. Sarwan Singh Phillaur resigned when his son's name figured in the same drug racket. Grewal stated that our party BJP leader maintained that our party BJP's stand has been consistent in this regard as the party feels that it effects the image of the government and alliance if the persons holding responsible and constitutional posts have to time and again appear before the ED in a case related to drugs and transactions related with the people involved in drug trade.
Grewal said that we have been also demanding Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) CPS Avinash Chander resignation on the similar grounds from a long period. Grewal said that Bikram Singh Majithia should face the probe and if he comes clean, he can again join the cabinet. Grewal said that our party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has a clear stand on drugs even nationally and Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi himself has made his Government of India stand clear on drugs in his programme "Man Ki Baat" aired by All India Radio in the country.
