Burning 'Chitta Ravan' by Cong mere 'political darama': Mann

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Dubbing the burning of effigy of 'Chitta Ravan' by as mere "political drama", (AAP) today accused PPCC Chief of adopting "double standards" on the issue of drug menace in Punjab.

Chairman of APP's 'Poll Campaign Committee' in and Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann alleged that Amarinder "saved" state minister Majithia by opposing inquiry against him in the multi-crore drug racket and is now "enacting drama" of burning 'Chitta Ravan'.



Mann said if PPCC Chief was serious about solving drug menace in he should have then supported AAP's demand of inquiry against Majithia for his alleged involvement in the drug racket.

He said Amarinder should not forget that he was the only one who opposed the inquiry against Majithia when every Punjabi, including his own party members, were demanding it.

Amarinder had even made fun of the then PPCC Chief Partap Singh Bajwa for demanding inquiry against Majithia, Mann alleged, adding he should apologise for "supporting the one who is responsible for pushing youth into drugs".

He sought clarification from Bajwa and other Congressmen on whether Amarinder's opposition to inquiry was "justified" at that time.

The Sangrur MP said there is a secret understanding between the "royal family and Badals" to join hands against AAP, as both of the factions have already "smelled their humiliating defeat" in the upcoming assembly elections.

Mann demanded that an independent agency under the supervision of the Supreme Court must re-inquire the multi-crore drug case in Punjab.

He said if AAP forms the government in Punjab, it would reopen the files related to 'Amritsar Improvement Trust' case.
