Cong targetting Maluka to deflect attention from own scams: SAD

Claiming that the state Congress leadership was trying to divert the attention of people from its own scams and anti-people policies of UPA,Rajya Sabha MP and SAD general secretary Balwinder Singh Bhunder Friday said the Opposition was unnecessarily politicising the issue of alleged scams in education department headed by Sikander Singh Maluka.

Claiming that the state Congress leadership was trying to divert the attention of people from its own scams and anti-people policies of UPA,Rajya Sabha MP and SAD general secretary Balwinder Singh Bhunder Friday said the Opposition was unnecessarily politicising the issue of alleged scams in education department headed by Sikander Singh Maluka.

“The the people of Punjab are already aware of the dubious character of the Congress leadership and they will not be swayed by these political gimmicks of the Opposition. The education minister had taken timely action against the irregularities in his department but now the Congress is unnecessarily raising a storm just to get political mileage. Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has already ordered a probe by a retired judge so there is hardly any need for any other inquiry,” Bhunder said in a statement.

‘Only threat to Bajwa from own partymen’

In a separate statement,Bhunder said PCC chief Partap Singh Bajwa should stop enacting another “petty but familiar gimmick of rushing to (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi to seek security for himself”.

“Bajwa should stop trembling in fear. The only threat he faces is political and it is within his own party. What happened to his bravado? In one breath he talks about teaching a lesson to the SAD and the Punjab government and on the other,scoots like a frightened primary school child with complaints of threats from others. Will the real Bajwa please stand up and be identified? Whether it is chicken-hearted shikaayati element or the big and brave talking general,which he likes to pretend to be in order to appear more courageous than (his predecessor) Capt Amarinder Singh,” Bhunder said.

He said it was ironic that Bajwa went Sonia and not to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to complain about threat to his security. “This is a proof that Bajwa feels threatened politically from within within his own party and is seeking the help of his party president to save him,” said Bhunder.

The Akali leader also wanted to know if the Union Home Ministry has sent any advice to Bajwa about security threats. “If neither the state government nor the Centre has any knowledge of any security threat to Bajwa and his friends,why is he feeling so scared and insecure,” Bhunder added.
