Terming the thrashing of SSP level officer by youth Akali Dal office bearers who are protégé of cabinet minister Bikram Singh Majithia, senior Congress leader, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has said that Majithia has become ‘Pappu Yadav’ of Punjab.
Referring to attack by a youth Akali Dal leader on AIG intelligence SS Mand in Ludhiana on Monday night as lesson to whole bureaucracy, Randhawa said that Mand had reaped what he had sowed.
"Mand has openly helped the Akali Dal by providing money to Congress rebels. He want Akali Dal government. And Now, protégés of his political masters are beating him as he made a wrong selection”, he said adding that "It’s a lesson for entire bureaucracy, who are working as Jathedars of Akalis. Congress ask all officer to muster courage and now perform duty as per law and constitution, otherwise be ready for bashing of Akali goons like Mand".
Randhawa, also talked tough against Bikram Majithia and said that he is ‘Pappu Yadav’ of Punjab. “His entry into Punjab politics has criminalsed the entire politics of Punjab, as Pappu Yadav, brother of law of Lalu Yadav did in Bihar. I would remind that after repeating for Second time Lalu Yadav government had also done the same lawlessness which Akalis doing these days. And let me remind you, Lalu is out of power since then. And same would happen to AKali Dal after next assembly polls”.
He advised the chief minister PS Badal to rein in Majithia and his associates, as the law and order problem is taking away the business community and talent away from Punjab. “After terrorism, Its now Akali Dal terror which has done maximum damage of State. Its first state government, which is creating anti investment atmosphere of Punjab. You failed to make Punjab a Paris but converted into more disturbed than Pakistan in terms of law and order”.
He said that attack had totally exposed the functioning of the Akali Dal and its youth wing and demanded strict action against the culprits.
He said that as now police is also not safe in Punjab, thus Congress will now urge the central government to deploy paramilitary force in state to save comman man and police officers from Akali Dal goons.
