Punjab Congress vice president and chief spokesperson Sunil Jakhar Tuesday accused the Akali-BJP government of having resorted to constitutional desecration by walking out of the House and running away from a debate.
“The government was aware of the tough time it would have faced, hence it walked out”, he said in a statement issued today, while adding, that the prime focus of the debate was to expose the arrogance of the Akalis and redeem the self-respect of a common man who is being made to go to the Halka in-charge for every little thing.
Commenting on the developments in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha in the last two days, Jakhar maintained that while the government was responsible for the religious desecration last year, this year it had rounded off with the constitutional desecration by subverting and sabotaging all the constitutional and legislative procedures by running away from a discussion.
The Congress Chief Spokesperson said, the government ran away while leaving the Opposition behind in the House, since it knew it will be caught on the backfoot for multiple reasons ranging from procurement, to jobs, exploitation of state resources for private benefit and misappropriation of money meant for SC students’ scholarships.
Jakhar disclosed that to expose the myth of government’s “Raj Nahi Sewa”, he will soon launch a portal, “jungleraj.in” since he believed it to be, “Raj Nahi Jungle Raj”. The portal, he said, will be the forum for every common man to register his problems and grievances against the government.
