Phagwara: BJP’s MLA from Phagwara and former Chief Parliamentary Secretary Som Parkash Kainth today took to idiomatic Punjabi and quoted Hindi blockbuster ‘Gaddar’ for driving home his point that Congress was the most corrupt party in the world and that defeated Congress candidates were suffering from brain fade as they were stuck up at the point where they were not now.


Addressing a well-attended gathering of SAD-BJP workers from villages, the first such meeting after his victory, Kainth, while referring to canards being spread by Congress leaders against Badals, quipped, “Chhajj tan boley,chhanani kion boley”(why should pot call the kettle black).


Commenting upon Local Bodies minister Navjot Singh Sidhu’s allegation that Badals had siphoned off Rs 2000 crore of central funds under Smart City project and Amrut scheme, Kainth claimed that central grants were used for development works by SAD-BJP government.


“It is sheer calumny to say that Badals had put the money into their accounts by diverting state funds”,he remarked.


Commenting upon Sidhu’s refrain that he would get done social audit of civic bodies, Kainth asked him as to who will do the social audit of Congress’s corrupt practices.


He also questioned Sidhu’s locus standi in constituting a probe panel, inducting into it four Congress leaders, for inquiring into the so-called irregularities of local Corporation.


“I have written a letter to Sidhu, telling him that he had no right to set such a panel, which was unconstitutional, but have not received any reply so far”,he said.


Ridiculing former Congress MLA Joginder Singh Mann for still considering himself an MLA and a minister, Kainth referred to Hindi movie Gaddar where a character was stuck up to pre-partition days.


“Like that character, Mann is stuck up in pre-poll days and still considers himself an MLA even though I have defeated him at the hustings”, he remarked, drawing lusty cheers from the gathering.


He asked Mann under which authority he was  presiding over functions and giving directions to officers.


Declaring truth will prevail and corrupt Congressmen will be reined in(‘nakel pau’), Kainth announced that he will raise public issues with full force in coming assembly session.


“We will not let this government to indulge in wayward and corrupt activities”,he declared.


Alleging that sinister practice of ‘halqa’ incharges still continued, Kainth said that he had appreciated CM’s declaration about dispensing with these.


“But unfortunately former Congress MLAs and defeated candidates of party are acting as ‘halqa’ incharges and meddling in day-to-day administrative matters”,he said.


Kainth further said,”Police have become puppet of Congress party. Vendetta politics was on. SAD-BJP workers are being implicated in cooked-up cases. Law and order have decidedly deteriorated.”


He advised officers  not to crawl before Congress leaders and rather keep honour of their uniform, office and conscience.


He, however, appreciated CM Amarinder Singh and FM Manpreet Singh Badal as well-intentioned persons, hoping that they will bridle the interfering Toms of their party.


He also informed that he had written a letter to CM about it.


Maintaining that present regime was starved off funds and all development projects had come to a grinding halt, Kainth alleged that incidents of desecration of holy Guru Granth Sahib and farmers suicides were going on while the Congress poll promises of waiving off farmers loans and providing employment to every household had fallen flat.


SGPC member cum SAD district President Sarwan Singh Kular also spoke.
