Khaira demands criminal charges against tainted Congress leader for causing huge losses to the state exchequer by evading excise duty from his distillery and illegal large scale peddling of liquor.

CHANDIGARH: Addressing a press conference here today Sukhpal Singh Khaira MLA and Ex LoP demanded a high-level time-bound CBI inquiry, into politician-drug-liquor mafia nexus damaging the youth of Punjab. Khaira said recent startling revelations by “Chitta” peddler Onkar @ Kari Ex Panch of V. Boot (Kapurthala) and a very close aide of Rana Gurjeet Singh (photo attached), clearly indicate of deep involvement of tainted Ex Minister of Congress Rana Gurjeet Singh with drug mafia operating at big level.

Khaira said Onkar@Kari arrested recently by Kapurthala police has confessed to buying 4 kg “Chitta” from Nekdeep Kumar @ Sunny of Jalandhar, during the last one year. Khaira said Nekdeep Kumar has confessed to the Kapurthala police that he had smuggled and sold around 400 kgs of “Chitta” in Punjab during the last couple of years. Khaira said that the kingpin of this drug racket operates from Dubai as per the confession of Nekdeep Kumar and Onkar Kari, who are being shielded and patronised by Rana Gurjeet MLA Kapurthala.

 

Khaira said V. Boot otherwise a village of poor daily wagers has been a safe drug haven for the last few years, where drug mafia like Onkar Kari have built mansions worth crores with drug money. Khaira said such a massive level drug peddling from this village is not possible without political patronization of the local MLa. Khaira alleged that Rana Gurjeet earlier accused of mining mafia due to which he was shunted out of the cabinet has been protecting, shielding and patronising drug mafia like Onkar Kari and Nekdeep Kumar. Khaira said Onkar Kari in his confession has boasted that his “tiger boss” Rana Gurjeet sells liquor across half of Punjab.

My allegations of wide spread liquor smuggling and evasion excise duty by mafia Rana Gurjeet Singh stand substantiated by repeated recoveries of truckloads of illegal liquor by police across Punjab, claimed Khaira. He said a full truck load of Rana Gurjeet distillery was impounded during Moga by election, thereafter during the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha by poll, huge quantities were recovered from Talwandi Chaudharian in Kapurthala etc.

Khaira said even the murder of Arvinder Pehalwan is connected to the illegal liquor sale of mafia Rana Gurjeet as the said killer ASI Paramjit Singh was home delivering the liquor of mafia Congress leader at V. Lakhan Ke Padde, on the night of murder.

Apart from “Chitta” smuggler connections Rana Gurtjeet has deep connections with the liquor mafia Kulwinder Singh @ Kala Kaddon whose illegal distillery racket was unearthed recently  at V. Bahomajra in Khanna district, (photo with liquor mafia attached) which show his close proximity with the said liquor mafia.

Khaira said apart from these nefarious drug-liquor mafia activities Rana Gurjeet Singh has been openly smuggling truckloads of liquor from his V. Lauke (Taran taran)  distillery as he wields political influence. Khaira said it was because of these political distillery owners that Punjab has suffered losses of over Rs. 2000 crore of excise revenue during the current financial year.

Khaira said it was a matter of shame for Capt. Amarinder Singh that such blatant liquor mafia patronised by his party colleagues like Rana Gurjeet were “looting” the state, while he is the Excise and Taxation Minister.

Khaira said last but not the least Capt. Amarinder Singh stands totally exposed for making false claims of having eradicated drugs from Punjab, while his own police are unearthing huge “Chitta” rackets of 4 quintals day in day out.

Khaira urged Capt. Amarinder Singh to immediately order a time bound CBI probe to expose deep rooted links of politicians like Rana Gurjeet and powerful bureaucrats with liquor drug mafia, destroying the lives of our youth. Khaira also urged Capt. Amarinder Singh to slap criminal charges against Rana Gurjeet for massive excise duty evasion from his distillery that caused huge losses to the public exchequer and recover the “looted” money.
