- Congress ministers and MLAs were equal partners in mafia rule

 

CHANDIGARH: Taking a jibe at the defeat of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh in the long-running battle for the chair of the ruling Congress, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab leader and Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema said that the Congress infighting has done a lot of damage to Punjab and its people. He said the people of Punjab have a huge resentment against the Congress. “No matter how many faces, the Congress may change, but in the upcoming elections, the people of Punjab will make the condition of the Congress worse than the Akali-BJP,” he said.

In a statement issued from the party headquarters here on Saturday, Harpal Singh Cheema reacted strongly to the resignation of Capt Amarinder Singh and the election of the Chief Minister, stating, “By changing Ali Baba, the rest of the thieves will not become innocent.” He said all the Congressmen are trapped in the quagmire of mafia rule that has been going on for four-and-a-half-years. “No matter how many faces the Congress may change, but it cannot change its false, corrupt and opportunistic nature,” he added.

Harpal Singh Cheema said while being power-drunk, Captain and his MLAs-ministers never thought about the prosperity of Punjab and were only busy filling their coffers. He said if Punjab and its people were on the agenda of the Congress government; the Congress would not have had to see this day. “Because the fight is not only for the Chief Minister's chair; but a battle to capture the status of mafia and kingpin,” he asserted. 

Cheema said being fed up with the ten years of mafia rule of the Badals, the people had expressed confidence in Captain and Congress with great hope. “The more confidence they expressed, the more disappointed they got in four-and-a-half-years. The Congress infighting left behind all the main issues of Punjab and the people. This is the reason that today people have started hating Congress on the lines of the BJP-Akali,” said Cheema.

According to Harpal Singh Cheema, the Congress is a 'sinking Titanic ship' today and now no captain can save it from sinking. He said the present reshuffle in the Congress is the last attempt to mislead the people of the state; so that the rest of the party is made holy by only blaming Captain Amarinder Singh for the failure of four-and-a-half years and mafia rule’s plunder. “But the people of Punjab have become very aware at the political level. Due to this, the public will not become a victim of this high voltage drama of the Congress,” he added.
