Slamming Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal for “distorting and projecting their routine meetings with Congress legislators as friendly ties”,Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday cautioned his party MLAs to be aware of the “deceit and machinations” of the chief minister and his deputy.

Amarinder said the father-son duo were projecting their routine and at times just incidental meetings with Congress legislators in a manner that could lead to confusion and misunderstanding within the party. He advised legislators that ideally they should avoid meeting the Badals in a manner that can be projected as bonhomie.

“Akalis are still victimising Congress workers at the grass-roots level in a more brutal manner than during the previous regime and the party has to stand by the workers and supporters besides getting them legal aid. Congress workers should not feel that their MLAs are more friendly with CM and Deputy CM than their own partymen because of whom they are MLAs today,” Amarinder said.
