Damanvir slams sukhbir badal


DW BUREAU Congress leader Damanvir Phillaur has hit out at Akali Dal for its court arrest and Jail Bharo Andolan in view of the reported move of the state government to register an FIR against former Akali Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for his alleged involvement in drug cases. Majithia is presently an MLA. "It is shameful to see Akali Dal, a party known for morchas like 'Punjabi Suba' and 'Jaito' putting up a 'morcha' to protect someone who's links in the drug trade is common knowledge in Punjab," said Damanvir Phillaur in a statement. "The Akali Dal that was a party known for agitations it conducted for betterment of Punjab and Punjabis has been reduced to a 'family' party by Sukhbir who's only aim is to protect & promote his relatives' in their illegal activities. Sukhbir should have the guts to ask for a thorough probe into the role of Bikram Singh Majithia in ruining Punjab by making the state a hub of illicit drug trade," added Damanvir Phillaur.
