Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia was given a hero’s welcome as he came out of Patiala jail after getting bail from high court on Wednesday.
A large number of Youth Akali Dal cadre was seen outside the Patiala jail to welcome him.
After coming out of the jail, Majithia said, “Governments commit atrocities, but those who did cannot be seen now.
Where is that CM (Charanjit Singh Channi)? He has disappeared altogether. Why is he not coming from America now? And the other one was my own neighbour in Amritsar (Navjot Singh Sidhu). Conspiracy against me was on since December last year. For two months, I remained in and out and finally I surrendered in February. Finally, God has done justice. I thank all who prayed for me.”
He said, “I have a message for the Opposition. Politics should not be used to settle scores. However, I still thank my political opponents who conspired against me. They changed three DGPs to book me.”
Majithia went to gurdwara to pray after he got bail and said that he was thankful to the gurus who made him stay strong. He also thanked his legal team and said that he had full faith in the judiciary. Majithia said that he was missing his kids like anything and was waiting to meet them along with other family members.
Meanwhile, in a statement, SAD said that the party’s faith in the judiciary has been reaffirmed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court’s decision to grant bail to Majithia.
A SAD release here said that “the order lays bare the evil designs of the previous Congress government as well as efforts by the present AAP dispensation to implicate Majithia in a false case”.
The SAD said the fact that the high court had stated that evidence against Majithia was “frail and not credible” vindicated the stand taken by the party that a conspiracy was hatched to implicate him in a false drug case.
