Punjab CM trying to implicate Bikram Majithia in a false case: SAD

CHANDIGARH: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said chief minister Bhagwant Mann was trying to implicate senior Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia in a false case and had even admitted that he was rewriting the file in an old false drug case registered against Mr Majithia by the erstwhile Congress government.
Addressing a press conference here, SAD chief spokesperson Arshdeep Singh Kler while referring to an interview of the chief minister said “it seems Mr Bhagwant Mann has taken on the responsibility of becoming the chief investigator in the false drugs case registered against Mr Majithia”. He said this was being done despite the fact that the Akali leader had secured bail in the case after the court held that there was nothing to link him with drug trafficking”.
Terming this as a desperate attempt to vilify Mr Majithia as well as divert the attention of people away from the failures of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, Mr Kler said “the AAP government has not been able to collect a single shred of evidence against Mr Majithia despite institution of a Special Investigating Team (SIT) to probe the case”. He said it was astonishing that the chief minister wanted to continue on the vendetta quest despite admitting that the case registered by the erstwhile Congress government was false.
Mr Kler also highlighted that the AAP government had repeatedly changed the heads of the SIT probing the drugs case in a desperate attempt to secure a tailor made verdict against the Akali leader. He said instead of indulging in such acts chief minister Bhagwant Mann should devote his attention to rectifying the law and order situation in the State, check the steep increase in the drug menace and stop financing his boss Arvind Kejriwal’s politics and election campaigns.
