WHILE PUNJAB Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh has resigned from Lok Sabha and Congress MLAs are also resigning following the Supreme Court verdict on SYL, Team Insaaf, led by Independent MLAs, Bains brothers, has asked the CM to call an emergency session of the Assembly. MLA Simarjeet Singh Bains and his elder brother Balwinder Bains, also an MLA, said, “It is a time to write history and hence rising above politics, the CM should call a Vidhan Sabha session where he should take all parties into confidence to walk against this decision. After this session, we both brothers will be the first ones to tender our resignations as MLAs.” They added that they will be waiting for two to three days for the session or they will submit their resignations in protest against the SC verdict on SYL as Punjab’s water cannot be shared with anyone.
Simarjeet said, “Tomorrow, I along with my elder brother, MLAs Pargat Singh, Navjot Kaur Sidhu will be meeting CM Parkash Singh Badal in Chandigarh to ask him to convene an emergency session of Vidhan Sabha. And, if he fails to do that, it will be a clear indication that SAD was a party to this decision.”
He added, “Congress is shedding crocodile tears on this issue and sending resignations when the model code of conduct is about to be implemented. And, the CM’s real face will also be seen if he fails to call a special Vidhan Sabha session on this emergent issue.”
