Punjab Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa on Wednesday asked Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal to tender an unconditional apology to the people for allegedly abusing his stature and making false claims of development in cities and rural areas.

Addressing a conference at Gurta Gaddi Diwas in Khadoor Sahib,Bajwa said: “It was so sad that Akali leaders ruling in Punjab had abandoned the teachings of Sikh Gurus for lust of power and money. Punjab is passing through a face of uncertainty.”

“The BJP MP from Amritsar,Navjot Singh Sidhu,deserves to be complimented for voicing the misdeeds of Badals in the public domain… His voice represents all MPs and MLAs of both Opposition and ruling parties. Badal and his son Sukhbir Singh Badal had portrayed a rosy picture by repeated lies and fake claims,” he added. What Sidhu was saying is an extension of exposures made by the Congress… The status of civic amenities in Amritsar was not different from other cities and towns,” said Bajwa.

“You can fool some people sometimes,but you cannot fool all the people all the time,” Bajwa said while referring to Badal. “Badal lives in fool’s paradise and believes he will go unchallenged. Congress has exposed lies,misdeeds and scams of SAD-BJP ministers and the chief minister shielded all guilty cabinet colleagues with impunity,” he alleged.

Badal,Bajwa question Kant

Two days after the Punjab and Haryana High Court took suo motu cognisance of former DGP (Prisons) Shashi Kant’s accusations of drug mafia operating in Punjab and directed the state to explain its stand,Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday slammed Kant saying why he had kept quiet and did not take any action when he was the DGP. “All have started to consider themselves as supreme. Picking faults has become the order of the day and it is not good,” Badal told mediapersons in Khadoor Sahib. Punjab Congress chief Partap Singh Bajwa too questioned Kant saying: “Why did he not tell such things when he was at the helm of affairs as DGP… All those who are involved in the racket should be exposed.”
