CHANDIGARH: Sounding an aggressive counter offensive against vendetta by the Aam Aadmi Party government against its leaders, the Punjab Congress today declared that the entire state leadership will present itself before the vigilance bureau on Monday at 11 am as it was fed up with the daily dose of allegations against its leaders by the government.
The Congress leaders also sounded a stern warning to all those officials involved in investigation asking them to beware of overstepping their brief as eventually they have to serve and stay in Punjab only and they will ensure that law catches up with them as it has caught up with others even after retirement.
Addressing a joint press conference the Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring and the Congress Legislative Party leader in the Vidhan Sabha, Partap Singh Bajwa, former Deputy Chief Ministers OP Soni and Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, former ministers Brahm Mohindra, Sukh Sarkaria, Pargat Singh, Kushaldeep Singh Dhillon, Raj Kumar Chabbewal, Sanjay Talwar and others said that they will be meeting the Governor seeking probe into the liquor policy in Punjab.
The CLP leader said, like Delhi the liquor policy in Punjab is a sellout in which the AAP leaders in connivance with some senior officials have defrauded the state by thousands of crores of rupees, besides rendering hundreds of Punjabi traders jobless.
He also announced that the party will seek a probe by the National Investigating Agency against the illegal sand mining going on along the border areas which even the Border Security Force had warned was a threat to national security.
“Let the two ministers concerned heading the excise and the mining ministry in Punjab be ready for the same fate as that of Manish Sisodia and Satyender Jain in Delhi”, he remarked.
