Facebook users have reacted sharply to party founder vice-presidents and former MLAs Jagbir Singh Brar and Kushaldeep Singh Dhillon’s move to join the Congress. The Facebook pages of PPP leaders were flooded with messages soon after the news came out on Sunday evening.
Harpreet Bains posted on Bhagwant Mann’s page, “Don’t worry about two people. We all stand with PPP. If two drops come out of the ocean, it will make no difference to the ocean.”
Commenting on the former PPP leaders’ allegations that the PPP had collected funds from NRIs, Ruby Grewal posted,“ Hey guys, I’m Ruby Grewal from Vancouver and I’m one of the proud team members of the PPP who gathered more than 20,000 people in Surrey for the PPP rally. Je koii ve kiki (Kushaldeep Singh Dhillon) yan jagbir da chamcha yan karchi ethey hovey tan mera message uhna nu de davey because they r not picking up their phone and have shut off their fb accounts. I openly challenge you (Kiki and Jagbir) guys to come forward with a proof of even a single penny donated to PPP, Jojo or Bhagwant. We collected the funds just for the event and i have every detail of each penny collected and spent. I would also like to ask Jagbir and Kiki the reason why they came earlier than Manpreet to Canada? Why Jagbir wanted to come back again right after he reached India? I have solid documents as proofs. Tell them to call a press conference and I’ll reveal all.”
Lakhwinder Brar posted this on Brar’s page: “Brar and Kiki really stabbed the PPP. They can’t realise how we are hurt by their decision. They can join any party but should appologise from PPP supporters.”
PPP chief Manpreet Badal had this to say on his page, “It takes courage to walk the lonely road. I have worked selflessly, always giving precedence to the interests of the state. If the people who are with me do not have the strength and conscience to stick to this road, they have no place in the PPP. Men who are influenced by greed and put their personal interests above those of Punjab are a part of the problem not the solution. These traitors, who have sold themselves like prostitutes, will not affect the party. It is good riddance of bad rubbish. I will fight for Punjab till the last breath, and regardless of victory or defeat, the PPP will never stray from its deeds. PPP Zindabad....”
