FEROZEPUR: Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa President Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) today said that SAD-BJP government was leading Punjab towards anarchy and corruption, crime and drugs have become trade marks of this government.

Mr. Bajwa was addressing district level dharna here organized by local MLA Parminder Singh Pinki in support of PPCC demand for CBI probe into drug racket operating in Punjab. Mr. Bajwa said that Congress fully supported the agitation by teachers working under Education Guarantee Scheme at Bathinda. While expressing shock at the death of 14 month old Eknoor daughter of a teacher, he has directed Bathinda DCC to extend full moral and material support to the striking teachers.

Mr. Bajwa said that Congress party was playing role of whistleblower and doing its duty of sincere opposition by raking the issues related to welfare of Punjab. He said that SAD-BJP government had become synonymous with corruption and crime. He said that people of Punjab had given mandate to SAD-BJP alliance to take Punjab forward but Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal and his family members have pushed the state to brink of bankruptcy.

PPCC President said that drug menace in Punjab was the only achievement of SAD-BJP government given to people. He said that Chief Minister was using government machinery and all other resources to suppress the probe into drug racket. He said that people of Punjab had given their trust to Mr. Badal and gave him rare distinction of becoming Chief Minister for five terms. It was expected that he would be thankful to people but he has betrayed the faith of people by shielding accused ministers involved in drug trade and corruption cases.

Mr. Bajwa said that Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia, Revenue Minister and close relative of Mr. Badal was not only involved in drug trade he was also providing safe sanctuary to the criminals. The Youth Akali Dal has become den of criminals, he added. The recent case of killing of 17 year old boy in Khanna by Yadavinder Singh Yadu district rural president of Youth Akali Dal Ludhiana is testimony of political support extended to criminals. He demanded immediate arrest of Yadu and his accomplices.

He said that in all the major crime incidents so far occurred in Punjab, supporters of Mr. Majithia were involved. He cited the example of Amritsar where Ranjit Singh Rana a Youth Akali Dal leader had killed ASI Ravinderpal Singh when he tried to protect the modesty of his daughter. Mr. Bajwa said that name of Majithia figured in promoting sand and liquor mafia. His supporters had beaten up Tehsildar Gurjinder Singh Benipal and SP rank officer S.S.Mand at Ludhiana. The youth Akali Dal leader of Patiala was absconding after an attempt to murder case registered against him. Maninder Singh Bittu Aulakh and Jagjit Singh Chahal, two close confidents of Mr. Majithia were arrested in drug trafficking case who were manufacturing drugs and supplying in red beacon vehicles to drug lord Jagdish Bhola.
