SAD seeks dismissal of Mann’s govt for failure to maintain law and order


The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today urged Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit to dismiss the Bhagwant Mann government for its gross failure to maintain law and order, even as it accused the AAP government of indulging in corruption running into hundreds of crores while framing the liquor and sand mining policy.
The SAD delegation apprised the Governor about the chief minister’s conduct in the Vidhan Sabha and said Bhagwant Mann was not fit to sit in his chair. It also expressed shock at the chief minister’s statement that he had a complete dossier on the corrupt activities of the previous Congress ministers. Sukhbir Badal said it was a fact that the previous Congress government was most corrupt but it was even more mystifying as to why the chief minister was not taking any action against former Congress ministers despite having proof of their corrupt activities in his possession.
He said it seemed the government was using the dossier to silence Congress leaders into submission. “This was even witnessed in the assembly when the Punjab Congress president refused to join the sloganeering against the chief minister or even raise his hand in solidarity with his party leaders protesting against the AAP government”, Badal told media later.
Sukhbir Badal also demanded that a CBI inquiry should be initiated into the murder of noted singer Sidhu Moosewala. He said chief minister Bhagwant Mann was responsible for the death of Moosewala. “If the chief minister had not posted statements on social media bragging that Moosewala’s security cover had been withdrawn, the singer would have been alive today”. He said a CBI inquiry was necessary to arrive at the truth in the case.
Asserting that law and order was most important, Badal said the gangsters and extortion culture which had become common during AAP tenure was not only affecting businessmen who were leaving the State but also the common man
