Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday said the Swiss bank accounts of Capt Amarinder Singh and his family would “soon be shared with the Indian authorities”.
He said this in a statement issued here in context of the war of words with Amarinder over the recently held Sadbhawna rally of the SAD at Bathinda, challenging him to hold a similar Congress rally there.
Daring Amarinder again to organise a similar rally, Sukhbir said, “I agree with Amarinder that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others. In case of the Congress leader it requires only one stone from the Federal Tax Administration of Switzerland to reach India for Amarinder’s entire edifice to crumble. Your Swiss bank details will soon be shared with the Indian authorities and the entire country will be witness as to who is living in a glass house,” the SAD president said.
Sukhbir asked the senior Congress leader “not to try to humiliate the proud people of Punjab by claiming that they had been forced to mark a reluctant attendance at the Sadbhawna rally”. “You are free to take political potshots at the SAD but don’t try to strike at the dignity of Punjabis by claiming that they can be forced to attend a public rally against their will,” he added.
“It is the people who make and break governments. Don’t try to insult them. They can hit back faster and harder than you can imagine,” Sukhbir told Amarinder on the latter’s statement that the people from Punjab and even Haryana and Rajasthan had been ferried to the SAD rally.
