Unperturbed over being thrown out of the Vidhan Sabha Friday, the Bains brothers Saturday said that they would ask a similar question again on Monday. “If needed we will approach the High Court as the orders were to throw me out and not my elder brother. They can throw me out of the assembly hall but not out of the building,” said Simranjeet.
Agreeing that the incident was an insult for any elected representative, he said, “I feel it was not our humiliation. It was a humiliation for all voters. If this is the way they treat elected representatives, one can imagine, what respect they have for the voters.”
“I will raise the same question again and again till the Vidhan Sabha session is on. What is the hitch of the Punjab government to write to Rajasthan government seeking Rs 16 crore for water sharing. Let them beat me, throw me out or do whatever they want. It is a issue of Punjab and it will not die down,” he said. He stated that this information was sought from Ministry of Irrigation and Power,GoI and that Punjab is supposed to charge Rajasthan for sharing river water as per the document which has not been done till now.
“This money can make Punjab debt-free and can boost the dead economy. But the behaviour with us shows their diktat and also indicates that Speaker is a bias man. If needed we will also meet the Speaker as well in the coming days,” said Balwinder.
Though the fourth front is yet to be formally announced, an excited Simranjeet said, “If the front comes to power in 2017, the first we will do is send water bills to Rajasthan as they have never sought it post independence.” He added that the front will contest on all the 17 seats and that a number of AAP and Congress workers are in touch with them. “Apart from the existing leaders, even Sucha Singh Chhotepur, Hardip Singh Kingra, Dr Dharamvira Gandhi and many others are in touch with us. We all are very positive and the result will be before all of you in a fortnight or so, “ he said. The Bains brothers have even distributed ladoos by announcing that the ‘fourth front’ will be launched soon, but officially nothing has been
Simarjeet however said,” Things will be before all of you soon, and we will contest on all the 117 seats. Apart from AAP leaders, volunteers, but a large number of Congress leaders are also in touch with us to join this fourth front.”
