In view of  land grabbing allegations levelled against NRI affairs minister Bikram Singh Majithia by owner of 'The Hub' property in Ludhiana, Hardial Hundal, Congress leader and former Bholath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Saturday termed the two day NRI Sammelan as a drama and a mock exercise.

He accused that what is the point of assuring NRI's of their properties protection, if the NRI affairs minister himself has grabbed prime property of an NRI, Hardial Hundal, in Ludhiana.

He alleged that post thrashing of AIG SS Mand by Akali goons and Youth Akali Dal (YAD) vice president Sunny Johar, NRI Hardial Hundal came out with strong documentary proofs about property grabbing at the behest of Bikram Majithia.

He said that Sunny Johar also demolished the ancestral house of Hundal in 2008 to build a posh restaurant with the support of Majithia, despite stay orders from a civil court.

The entire civil and police administration of Ludhiana turned a blind eye not only to the brazen land grabbing but remained a mute spectator, while Sunny Johar raised 'The Hub' restaurant over it, he added.

He also accused that Bikram Majithia is a 'benami' partner of Sunny Johar and is continuously shielding and protecting the Akali goons.

He said that the criminal case against Sunny Johar and others will fall like a pack of cards courtesy Mjithia as the goon Sunny Johar still claims to be Vice President YAD.

It is also a matter of great shame that no elected MLA or MP NRI had the audacity to speak up for fellow NRI Hardial Hundal at the meet, whose property has been grabbed by Majithia.

He also urged chief minister to sack Majithia and return the property to the NRI.
