Punjab President and MP Bhagwant Mann of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said that the AAP has been saying from the beginning that the Channi government has colluded with the Badal family in the drug case because the Badals saved Charanjit Channi's brother in the City Centre scam, and now Channi has returned the favor by saving Bikram Singh Majithia in the drug case.
Mann claimed that the Channi government did nothing throughout their 111-day tenure and even failed to keep Punjab law and order. That is why the Punjabi people have decided to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party in the next Assembly elections. Bhagwant Mann accused Charanjit Singh Channi of adopting a mild and time pass action against Bikram Majithia in the narcotics issue during a news conference on Tuesday. He claimed that even before the FIR, there was an agreement between Channi and the Badal family that the Congress government would file a weak case against Majithia and that no concrete action would be done. That is why, despite the FIR and the Mohali District Court's rejection of his anticipatory bail, the Congress government did not arrest Majithia.
Mann said that legal action against Majithia in drug case met the same fate as Raja Warring’s action against the buses of Badal family, because Congress leaders didn’t take legal actions to punish mafia but to mislead the people of Punjab. He said that as a resultant today Badal’s buses are on roads and Majithia will roam free as it is. Mann said that with
the formation of Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab, AAP will reopen these files and case to take exemplary action against every mafia and corrupt leaders. He said that Captain Amarinder Singh had sworn a sacred oath with ‘Gutka Sahib’ in his hands to eliminate the drug mafia from Punjab in just 4 weeks but didn’t take even a single action against Bikram Majithia during his tenure of four and half years. He said that now it is clear to everyone that Congress, Captain Amarinder Singh, SAD (Badal) and BJP, all are partners.
Bhagwant Mann said that the people of Punjab would elect Aam Aadmi Party government, every survey indicates that and people gather in large numbers in the rallies of AAP on their own, is a solid proof that they (people) only want AAP government. Mann said, “Aam Aadmi Party already has a roadmap ready for the development of Punjab. Roadmap for the development of farming sector, industries, education, medical treatment and eliminating unemployment and poverty is ready. AAP is a secular party and we’ll
establish brotherhood and positive politics in state.” Mann denied that Aam Aadmi Party is not circulating the pamphlets with slogan, ‘Take money from anyone, but vote for Aam Aadmi Paty.’ He also said that there is no double-dealing going on in the seat allotments, if anyone has any proof then come forward, AAP will take action against it because Aam Aadmi Party was founded from an Anti-corruption movement. Mann said, “Party has an agenda. Leaders may change but our policies will never.” Mann congratulated Balbir Singh Rajewal for Sanyukt Samaj Morcha front and said that AAP didn’t offer anyone to be their CM face but the party will soon announce one.
