Chandigarh: Infighting has started emerging again in the Punjab Congress. MLA Sukhpal Khaira has questioned the attitude of Punjab Congress president Amarinder Raja Warring and advised him to not waste the energy of the party cadre for any one person.
He was referring to former Congress minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu, who was caught in Ludhiana. The Congress is staging a dharna in Ludhiana against his arrest.
Raja Warring has opened a front to save Bharat Bhushan Ashu. Ashu is also the working president of the party. The vigilance office in Chandigarh was first gheraoed to save Ashu. After this, when Ashu was caught by vigilance from Ludhiana, Waring reached Ludhiana in the middle of the night itself. Since then, the Punjab Congress has staged a sit-in in Ludhiana.
Reacting to this, “I request @RajaBrar_INC not to waste party cadres energy over defending individuals as there’re tons of burning issues facing Pb like Beadbi,farmer suicides,water logging,Lsd etc.I faced ED & bcoz i was truthful,Bholath voted me to Vidhan Sabha.If our leaders r honest why worry?” Khaira wrote on his twitter account.
