Chandigarh January 11 – The Shiromani Akali Dal will launch “pol khol
lehar” in Punjab in the first week of February to “expose the Congress
government’s massive fraud with the beleaguered farmers, khet
majdoors,dalits and Backward Classes on loan waiver. During this
Lehar, the SAD will take the issue of the Congress to the people with
rallies in all 117 assembly constituencies of the state.
This was announced by the party president Sardar Sukhbir SIngh
Badal after a marathon meeting of the Core Committee of the party at
the party headquarters here this evening.
Mr Badal also announced that a delegation of the SAD comprising Core
Committee members will meet the state governor Shri VP Badnor tomorrow
morning to seek his intervention to direct the state government to
fulfil its promises to farmers, dalits, khet mazdoors and Backward
classes.”The total debt according to the Congress itself is 90,000
crore and their total waiver scheme covers less than 700 crore, that
less than one percent of the total burden.
The delegation would also ask the Governor for the appointment of an
inquiry commission headed by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court to
go into the all incidents of sacrilege in Punjab both during the
SAD-Government and under the present regime. Mr Badal said that
Punjabis had no faith in the fairness and professional objectivity of
the Chief Minister’s “evening buddies like Justice Ranjit SIngh retd
whose mission in life has been to hate and malign the Shiromani
AkaliDal .”Now the only pastime of such retired judges is to enjoy
the splash and luxury of evening parties thrown by the Chief
Minister. The social media is abuzz with the news and videos of these
parties these days. What kind of commitment and honesty can one expect
from such evening birds,?” wondered the SAD president.
