The Punjab Revenue & Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia today accused PCC President Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa of betraying the Punjab peasantry by mobilizing them to national capital for getting announced a special package but could not get announced a single penny for the debt ridden farming community. He said that the plain refusal of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for meeting the farmer’s delegation shows the apathy of Congress for this hardworking community along with the ‘stature’ of Mr. Bajwa in the eyes of party high command. He also condemned the behavior of Rahul Gandhi towards Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and equated with an incident of removal of turban of an elder.
Addressing a series of Youth Akali Dal (YAD) rallies at Bhai Bala Chowk, Pakhowal Road and Jodhewal Basti besides interacting with the industrialists of industrial city during his whirlwind tour, Mr. Majithia, who is also President of Youth Akali Dal, pointed out that Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa was a known liar and an incapable advocate as he has an old tendency to make false promises but delivers none.
He said that his latest drama of mobilizing Punjab farmers to Delhi to get them a special package from UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi has shown his true colours as the latter don’t even bothered to meet those farmers. He said that the way Mr. Bajwa befooled the Punjabi farmers by luring them to Delhi has exposed his seriousness towards the most crucial issue of suffering farming community. He said that this theatric has also uncovered his poor standing before the party high command. He said that Mr. Bajwa simply believes in pisive politics and the polarization of Congress leaders in the state has proved that he was not a leader as he was miserably failed in leading the party. He also pointed out that not only Mr. Bajwa but also the other seven Congress MPs from Punjab have also being miserably failed in getting any special package or mega project for the state. He said that the recent insult meted to Punjab farmers by the UPA Chairperson also highlights the constant betrayal of Congress with hardworking farming community. He said that since independence majority of the time Congress or Congress led UPA government’s had ruled the country but did nothing significant to strengthen the farming sector. He said that the Congress has been more bias against Punjabi farmers who have been making a huge contribution of more than 50% in National Food kitty but the most unfortunate aspect before us was that Punjabi farmers were reeling under a whopping Rs.30,000 crore debt. He said that when Congress led UPA-1 government was at the last leg it had announced a Rs.70,000 crore debt waiver scheme of which Punjab farmers got less than Rs.1,000 crore despite their un-paralleled contribution in making the nation self reliant on food grains front.
Describing the behavior of Rahul Gandhi towards Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh highly condemnable, Mr. Majithia said that it shows the Congress yuvraj’s arrogance despite total failure on political front. Equating it with the removing a turban of an elder, Mr. Majithia demanded that Rahul should apologize to the PM.Exhorting the people of Punjab especially the youth to play a pro-active role in installing NDA government after coming general elections, Mr. Majithia said that it becomes imperative to ensure the balanced and fast paced development including a major economic package for Punjabi farmers to boost their sagging economy. He said that the way Punjab Congress leaders especially Congress MPs from Punjab have limited themselves to destructive politics by creating hindrances in state projects and rightful share of state in Central funds, the people of Punjab would give them a befitting reply by ensuring their big defeats in Lok Sabha elections. He said that we need a decisive, capable and able administrator as Prime Minister of the Country and only NDA can provide this to save the country as Congress led UPA government has taken the country to the brink of economic disaster.
