Captain will jail Majithia !!

Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder Singh today said if elected he would put behind bars those guilty of drug smuggling and “patronising” drug mafias, bringing to the fore the rampant drug abuse in the state, as he slammed the Badal family for failing to control the menace. He attacked the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and its top leaders, including Bikramjit Singh Majithia, for allegedly misleading the people with their “disinformation” campaign.Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh accused the Badals of deliberately twisting his statement on review of all decisions taken by them in the last three months before the polls, making it clear that no government appointments would be subjected to any scrutiny. Pointing out that he was committed to providing one job per family, Captain Amarinder asserted that no government employee would be deprived of his job. Rather, he promised regularization of all contractual appointments, with related perks and facilities.

“I am only concerned about the political appointments that the Badals are hastily making to promote the interests of their own people,” said Captain Amarinder, adding that his target were the decisions which were blatantly politically motivated and sought to rehabilitate the disgruntled elements in the ruling SAD-BJP combine at the cost of the common people of the state, especially the youth who were taking to drugs due to their unemployment burden.Many such appointments relate to retired government officials or politicians who had not been given tickets by the Badals, said Captain Amarinder, reiterated his threat to review every such appointment immediately after coming to power.The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president charged the Badals with resorting to fabrications and misleading statements, as well as unfounded allegations, against him and his party in a fit of desperation triggered by the certain wipeout they were facing in the coming assembly elections in the state.
