sukhbir: Punjab: Farmers Cannot Be Satisfied Until Congressional Government Implements Total Loan Waiver, Says Sukhbir Singh Badal | Chandigarh News
Sukhbir was speaking at a reception where the president of the intellectual cell of the Congress, Anish Sidana, joined the SAD with his team. The president of SAD appointed him his political adviser for urban areas.
Launching an attack on the chief minister, Sukhbir accused Channi of being the âbiggest illegal colonizerâ in the state and responsible for the proliferation of illegal settlements in the Kharar-Ropar belt in addition to controlling the activity of sand mining in the region. âThe Chief Minister was known to patronize illegal settlements as well as the sand mafia. This is the reason why Channi played a prank on the people in the name of reducing the price of sand, âSukhbir said. People are not getting sand anywhere at Rs 5 per cubic foot, as announced by the chief minister, but the treasury has lost Rs 50 crore by advertising this lie, he added. He said the chief minister also offered false claims that oil prices were the cheapest in the region and also tried to deceive the Punjabis by reducing electricity tariffs by Rs 3 per unit up to to March 31.
Regarding the STF report case pending before the High Court, Sukhbir said: âNo one is preventing the government of Punjab from catching the drug lords. He said it was strange that instead of arresting the drug lords, the Congressional government politicized the issue the same way it did in the sacrilege case.
He also challenged the state government to present a single piece of evidence against him in the sacrilege case. “Chief Minister, Interior Minister Sukhjinder Randhawa and DGP IPS Sahota may be held responsible under Article 120 (b) for instigating a criminal conspiracy to trap me in a bogus case which was revealed by the SAD. ”
Regarding the cancellation of his transport company’s bus permits, Sukhbir said they were canceled even without giving him notice. âWe do not owe even a single rupee in taxes to the government of Punjab. On the other hand, the businesses of the congressional leaders are defaulting, but are not being prosecuted, âSukbir said, adding that the state also owed 280 crore rupees in taxes on the buses of the state transport company.
The SAD president said he was surprised after the peasant organizations said they were satisfied to have met the Chief Minister of the Punjab on Wednesday. Sukkhbir said farmers expected Kisan organizations to address the issue of the extreme shortage and black commercialization of diammonium phosphate (DAP) fertilizers with the chief minister during their meeting.
