CHANDIGARH: Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring today condemned Sunil Jakhar's ungrateful and unjustified outburst against the party and its leadership.

"It is sad, bad, ugly and outrageous on part of Jakhar Sahab to have gone public with such wild and unsubstantiated allegations against the party that had given so much to him and his family", Warring said in a statement from Udaipur and released here today.

The PCC president said, instead of launching such a vituperative attack on the party and leadership that too when the entire leadership had gathered for three-day brainstorming session in Udaipur, Mr Jakhar should have reflected upon himself and the reasons for the situation he has landed himself in.

"Congress party is too big, too grand and too magnanimous and nobody knows it better than Jakhar Sahab that when he lost parliament, Vidhan Sabha, he was fielded from Gurdaspur in by-election and elected to the Lok Sabha and also made the PCC president", he said, while adding, just because he was not appointed the Chief Minister he launched a suicidal attack on the same party that gave so much to him and his family.
Warring asked Mr Jakhar whether it is not a fact that his statements antagonised and alienated a large section of voters which cost the party heavily not only in Punjab but also in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

"Inspite of all this, party exercised utmost restraint respecting his seniority, but he did not acknowledge it", Warring regretted, adding, Mr Jakhar indeed is a senior leader but party always remains above the individuals, no matter how big they may be or how big they might feel they are.
