After Sukhbir Said Channi Called Him To Drop Brother’s Name In Scam , AAP Calls It Deal
CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab President and MP Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said that AAP has been maintaining for long that Channi government has colluded with Badal family in drug case because Badals tried to save his brother Manmohan Singh in City Centre scam and now he has returned the favour by saving Bikram Singh Majithia in drug case.
These allegations come two months after Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) supremo Sukhbir Badal too had disclosed in November that Channi personally approached him to get his brother Manmohan’s name extricated from the Ludhiana City Centre scam and in lieu of that even offered support to their government. He also alleged that the CM is the biggest illegal coloniser in the state.
Mann said that Channi government did nothing in their 111 days regime and even failed to maintain the law and order in Punjab. That’s why the people of Punjab have made up their minds to support Aam Aadmi Party in the upcoming Assembly elections.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Bhagwant Mann accused Charanjit Singh Channi of taking a light and time pass action against Bikram Majithia in drug case.
He said that there was a ‘deal’, between Channi and Badal family, in place even before the FIR that Congress government would file a weak case against Majithia and no concrete action would be taken. Congress government did not arrest Majithia even after FIR or the rejection of his anticipatory bail from Mohali District Court.
Earlier in November, Sukhbir had said,” Channi has little moral standing. He had no qualms in approaching me to save his brother from being implicated in the city centre scam case. He begged for this and also offered support to the SAD as an independent candidate”
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 did not 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.
