Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Monday cautioned Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh to desist from “the old habit of raising the bogey of false cases against Congress leaders” and challenged him to bring to his notice any such case.
Reacting to Amarinder’s allegation that false cases were being registered against Congress leaders at the behest of the ruling party after the poll results, Badal said his government never believed in politics of vendetta and had decided to ensure justice to every citizen.
“You had been levelling allegations that 50,000 false cases had been registered against Congress leaders during the past five years. Twice on the floor of the House, I rejected your allegations and challenged you to produce a single case, but you have failed to do that,” said Badal.
The chief minister said Amarinder’s ‘propaganda’ regarding false cases had been rejected by the people of Punjab in the recent assembly elections.
“I reiterate my commitment to ensure justice to every citizen of Punjab and again request you to bring to my notice any instance of a false case — with solid evidence — so that we can take appropriate action against the guilty,” Badal added, advising the PPCC chief to desist from levelling baseless allegations so that no confusion was created among the public.
