Chandigarh, June 23 – The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) senior leader and Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Punjab Assembly, Harpal Singh Cheema alleged that Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh was repeatedly bowing at Rahul Gandhi’s court to save his seat by abandoning Punjab; because Captain has not fulfilled any election promises during his tenure, but has betrayed the unemployed youth and government employees seeking jobs. In a statement issued from the party headquarters here on Wednesday, Harpal Singh Cheema said that Captain Amarinder Singh had made a lot of promises to the people of Punjab by taking oath of Sri Gutka Sahib, but later reneged on them.
He said that even the perpetrators of the desecration of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and the conspirators who shot at the Sikhs had not been punished yet. Cheema said that spurious liquor factories were also being set up in Punjab every day. “Like the Badal government rule, drug mafia, transport mafia, sand, and mineral mafia and hooliganism, still continues in the state and the people of Punjab are suffering from the tyranny of the police and mafia rule,” he added. Cheema said that inflation had reached its peak and it was becoming difficult for the poor to make ends meet, but the Captain Amarinder Singh-led Congress government was busy making their attendance at Delhi by abandoning the state.
The LoP further said that Captain Amarinder Singh was taking unconstitutional and anti-Punjab decisions to save his seat. “Instead of the common people, the sons and daughters of rich Congressmen have been given jobs, while the sons and daughters of the common people are being harassed by the Punjab police every day,” he said. Cheema said that attempts were being made to fool the employees of Punjab in the name of the pay commission. He said that there was no such thing as law in Punjab as Captain Amarinder Singh used to be sitting in cold valleys and now he was begging for his seat at the ‘Delhi Darbar’. Cheema appealed to the people of Punjab to take stock of the election promises made in 2017 by the Congress party leaders, during the 2022 elections.
