Reacting to Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badals allegations on his Swiss Bank accounts,Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday said Sukhbir was suffering from a defeatist and fascist frustration and paranoia and was resorting to Goebbelsian propaganda to repeat his lies hundred times to that these sounded like truth. Sukhbirs plight is like that of Hitler at the end of the war where suicide seems to be the only option, he said.
Describing Sukhbirs allegations as unsubstantiated and baseless,Amarinder asked him to come out with facts and figures like the name of the bank,statement of accounts or stop yelping like a parrot which keeps on repeating words he is made to learn all the day. If you have anything substantial bring it out before the people of Punjab and also go to the prime minister and the finance minister or otherwise shut your mouth. Nothing is going to lend any credibility to his mindless allegations as long as he does not come out with facts and figures, Amarinder said in a press statement.
The PCC president said Sukhbirs frustration was understandable as he was distressed,depressed and discredited as both he as well as his father were losing their Jalalabad and Lambi Assembly seats and were running away from there in desperate search for safer seats. Also the failure of his much touted kabbadi tournament despite nude dances and drug consumption make his position more pitiable. To top it all the absolute failure L K Advanis yatra in Punjab greeted with black flags and empty chairs are enough reasons to justify Sukhbirs frustration.
At least he must be asked to name of the bank where he claims I have an account and the statement that says I have deposits worth Rs 400 crore. Father and son have amassed wealth worth billions of rupees without any obvious source of income and own seven star luxury hotels in Gurgaon worth over Rs 2000 crore,parking lots in Australia and America,have grabbed the transport business,sand and gravel mining,liquor trade,cable operations and everything you think that can make good money, he said.
Amarinder committed treachery with Sikh Panth by rejoining Cong: Harsimrat
Bathinda: Bathinda MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Monday accused state Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh of committing treachery with Sikh Panth by the rejoining Congress,just for the sake of power,while ignoring the glaring fact that the same party organised the genocide of 7,000 Sikhs in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Addressing mediapersons after inaugurating the 66 KVA sub-station at Bhucho,Harsimrat asked how can a Sikh breathe in a political party that was working day and night to protect the killers of the Sikhs. How can the Captain attend the meeting of the party,which was attended by Sajjan Kumar or Tytler, she said that while asking Amarinder to either demand that Tytler and Sajjan be hanged,besides their immediate expulsion from the party,or resign from the party that was giving shelter to the butchers of 1984 holocausts.
