ON One day when Chief Minister Amarinder Singh stressed the need for greater synergy between the special task force, the police and the intelligence wing to eliminate the drug threat in Punjab, former Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu denounced the state police chief accusing him of failing to act on the STF’s drug report.
“At DGPâ¦ What did you do about Majithia?” What about those who facilitated and politically protected the creation of a chemical factory in Punjab? What action is taken against the big fish mentioned in the STF report sent by the High Court to the government? So today he is threatening to file a complaint with us, âSidhu said in a tweet.
He also posted press clippings online, including one in which Jagdish Bhola, a former international wrestler and sacked from DSP, named Bikram Singh Majithia, then SAD-BJP government minister, after being arrested in November 2013 in a drug racket of 700 crore rupees. .
In 2018, the High Court of Punjab and Haryana asked the head of an anti-drug STF, set up by Punjab CM Amarinder Singh to catch the “big fish” in drug trafficking, to file a status report on the “role of Majithia”.
Sidhu also criticized Shiromani Akali Dal leader Sukhbir Singh Badal, saying the new SIT on post-sacrilege dismissals was coming “closer to justice for the soul of the Punjab.”
â6 years since the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. No justice within 2 years of your reign. No justice in the next 4.5 years. Today the new SIT is getting closer to Justice for Punjab’s Soul and you are crying out for political interference. Political interference is what delayed justice for 6 years, âSidhu said in a tweet.
Cricketer turned politician was reacting to a tweet from Badal in which the former chief deputy minister accused the Punjab’s chief minister of implicating the SAD leadership in bogus cases at the request of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi .
“While the farmers are suffering, CM is busy keeping the Gandhi family happy and has accepted @RahulGandhi’s directive to involve SAD leadership in bogus cases,” Sukhbir said in a tweet Friday.
