A day after Punjab revenue minister Bikram Majithia filed a defamation case against Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal and two other party leaders, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann attacked the Akali leader on the drug issue again and dared him to file a suit against him too.
Addressing mediapersons here on Saturday, he said, “I fail to understand why he (Majithia) does not file a defamation case against me. During my entire Lok Sabha campaign, I targeted him on the drug issue. I challenge Majithia to file a case against me. I will give proof of what I say.”
He said Majithia filing defamation cases showed his frustration. Mann said Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh or Ashish Khetan attack Majithia only when they are in Punjab, “but we (AAP leaders in Punjab) do it every day; so why he does not file cases against us”.
‘Will fulfil his wish’
Hitting back, Sarchand Singh, media advisor to revenue minister Majithia, said, “We will soon fulfil Bhagwant Mann’s wish and file a case against him. If Mann has any proof, he should give them in court instead of making wild allegations.”
