Punjab Revenue Minister Mr Bikram Singh Majithia attacking the Delhi Chief Minister and convener of Aam Aadmi Party Mr Arvind Kejriwal said that the intelligent Punjabis will not allow Mr Kejriwal to play his dual politics and if Kejriwal tries to dupe Punjabis, his party and him will have to bear its serious repurcussions.
Mr Majithia, who had come to constituency Majitha to distribute grant of Rs 40 lacs, while talking to the media persons said that Kejriwal is answerable to Sikhs for hugging the Congress leader accused in 84 riots Jagdish Tytler and the reason behind file of Special Investigation Team (SIT) against Tytler getting list. Today when Kejriwal proximity to Tytler has become public, the former is enacting drama of writing to Prime Ministe Mr Narenra Modi for taking action against Tytler. Mr Majithia raised question that why didnt Kejriwal remember writing letter one-and-a-half year ago?
Answering a media query on Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh remark asking Chief Minister Punjab Mr Parkash Singh Badal to quit politics after 2017, Mr Majithia said that Captain statement should not be taken seriously. He added that Captain had made similar statements in the year 2007 and 2012, but the wise Punjabis outrightly refused Captain and made him cool heels at home. He added that during Captain regime people had to pay hefty power bills while they reeled under long power cuts. There were no schemes for common man like atta-dal, shagan or pension schemes. He said that Captain has never bothered to pay attention to people oriented schemes. He added that people of Punjab are wise as they know who has heralded in prosperity and development in state and its obvious that people will bring in government of Mr Parkash Singh Badal in 2017. He said that the opposition will never succeed in breaching the peace and harmony of state. He said that the opposition was unnecessarily fanning issues and trying to grind their own axe, but the people of Punjab are well aware of such nefarious designs and will again show them the door during elections.
Addressing a mammoth gathering Mr Majithia said that opposition was making false claims of the state coffers lying empty whereas there was no dearth of funds for development. Throwing a light on different developmental schemes he said that when the treasures run dry, how can the developmental works be done. He added that the unprecedented developmental works of SAD-BJP has dwarfed all other political parties and now these other political parties are trying to come to power by hook or crook.
Talking about the union budget, Mr Majithia said that the budget may bring opporunities for farmers, laborers and broder areas to put up industry.
