Reacting to the allegations levelled by spokesperson of PPCC Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Bathinda MP and SAD candidate Harsimrat Kaur Badal has asked him to take over the  Rs. 10,000 crore property he has alleged she owned and spend half of that property on charitable works on her behalf.  

"This, however, will not happen. Khaira is known to make noises for the media consumption only. Instead of making baseless, absurd and crude charges Khaira should have come up with a list of properties and proved how I owned them,” she reacted. Harsimrat said that Congress leader was resorting to absurd charges without any proof of the same. 

She said that Congress leader has always tried to overreach himself. “After being ignored by the Congress Khaira tried to join the AAP. Now he is allowing himself to be used by Manpreet Badal and has made these allegations to divert attention from the charges against Manpreet by former Congressman Anil Bhola,” she expressed.

She said unlike Khaira, who lived the life of a feudal but claimed to be fighting the feudals, she did not believe in hypocrisy.

"I own property worth Rs. 108 crore and have mentioned as such in my affidavit to the Election Commission.”
