Drawing a parallel between the registration of an FIR against the SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia and the bomb blast that rocked the Ludhiana city as well as the recent sacrilege incidents, the Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Thursday questioned as to why such a horrendous incident took place only after Majithia was cornered by the law.Contending that there are some anti Punjab forces who want to disrupt the peace of the state, he also said why all beadbis (sacrilege) and blasts are happening just after Majithia was booked. “We are also probing this angle to the recent dastardly acts that have been perpetrated”, said the Chief Minister adding just a single case has forced Majithia to go incognito and if the akali leader has done nothing wrong then he should come forward to face the law.Castigating Sukhbir Singh Badal and Bikram Singh Majithia, CM Channi said that both have destroyed the great legacy of a grand old party Shiromani Akali Dal and brought disrepute to SAD by indulging in drug trafficking and bedadbi activities.
Taking on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Chief Minister said that Arvind Kejriwal apologized to Majithia in drug case whereas Kejriwal earlier sought votes during the last elections leveling charges of drug trafficking on the akali leader. Now Bhagwant Mann and other AAP leaders should apologize to the people of the state for siding with drug smuggler Majithia who has ruined the youth of Punjab by being the kingpin of drug trade, added the Chief Minister while reiterating that no drug trafficker would be allowed to go scot free and all anti Punjab Forces would be dealt with an iron hand.After the rally, the Chief Minister inaugurated a bus stand at Mullanpur Dakha which has been named after the iconic martyr Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha besides announcing Sub Division Status to Mullanpur Dakha, an ITI College for Latala, Rs. 5 crore for the development works and Government Degree College for Sidhwan Bet.Appealing to the people to support Capt. Sandeep Sandhu in the coming elections, Channi said that Capt. Sandhu has made untiring efforts for the development of Dakha constituency despite loosing bye elections.
The Cabinet Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu while addressing the gathering said that the pro-people decisions taken and implemented by the Chief Minister in just three months were not taken during last four and half years. He also lauded the contribution of Capt. Sandeep Sandhu for the development of constituency. He also said that some anti Punjab forces are trying to disrupt the peace of the state which would not be allowed at any cost.Capt. Sandeep Sandhu speaking on the occasion credited the work done by Chief Minister Channi during his short tenure for people having turning up in large numbers to listen to his development centric futuristic roadmap. He said that FIR registered against drug traffickers recently should be thoroughly probed and culprits should be given exemplary punishment.The former MLA Jassi Khangura asked the Congress workers to put up a united face during the elections. He also appealed to the CM to show the door to party defectors who always back stab the party during elections and exhorted the people to stand by Capt. Sandeep for the overall development of Dakha constituency.The MLA and Chairman Punjab State Warehousing Corporation Kuldeep Singh Vaid, MLA Sanjay Talwar, MLA Jagtar Singh Jagga Hissowal, Chairman Improvement Trust Raman Subrmaniam, and District Congress Rural President Kiranjeet Soni Ghalib were also present on the occasion.
