Captain Amrinder Singh
  Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has ridiculed SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal over his crocodile tears’ on the Bargari issue, and made it clear that his government will follow the cases through to their logical conclusion. Reacting to the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) decision to challenge the CBI closure in the Bargari cases, the Chief Minister lashed out at Sukhbir for trying to fool the people by pretending to be concerned about the issue.

Meanwhile Cabinet Minister,Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa challenged Sukhbir Badal to get rejected  closure report of CBI  by Union Cabinet, if fails recall Harsimrat Kaur Badal from Union Cabinet. On the other side Punjab Oppsition Leader Harpal Singh Cheema said, SAD rejecting the CBI’s closure report probing into the of desecration of Sri Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari in 2015, was nothing but a political stunt enacted by the Badals, who were privy to the chain of events.

In the meantime CM said, instead of probing the matter himself, Sukhbir, who was then Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister of the state, had been responsible for sending the first three cases related to the Bargari issue to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), pointed out the Chief Minister. Now that the CBI has completed its probe and filed a closure report, Sukhbir is getting the jitters, indicating complicity at some level in the entire affair, he added.

STOP SHEDDING CROCODILE TEARS CAPT TO SUKHBIR BADAL, CM ASKS AG TO LOOK INTO ALL LEGAL OPTIONS TO TAKE CASE TO LOGICAL CONCLUSION ,GET CLOSURE REPORT OF CBI REJECTED BY UNION CABINET: RANDHAWA CHALLENGES TO SUKHBIR, RECALL HARSIMRAT KAUR BADAL FROM UNION CABINET , • SAD’S ‘REJECTING’ CBI CLOSURE REPORT ON BARGARI, A POLITICAL GIMMICK TO GRAB EYEBALLS: HARPAL CHEEMA


How else can the SAD decision to challenge the CBI closure report in court be explained, asked Captain Amarinder, lambasting Sukhbir for once again seeking to politicize the sensitive issue and possibly to wriggle out of his own responsibility in ensuring a fair and thorough probe into the matter under the SAD-BJP rule.

The Chief Minister asked Sukhbir not to forget the simple fact that even now, when the CBI has filed the closure report which he wants to challenge, it is the NDA government in power at the Centre, with his SAD a part of it. It is time to stop trying to fool the people by twisting facts and raising false flags, he told the SAD president.

Reiterating his promise to bring to book all those involved in the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, and the subsequent police firing on peaceful protestors, Captain Amarinder said his government was committed to expose the entire conspiracy that was clearly behind the incident. Nobody can be allowed to get away with such brazen attempts to spread disharmony in the state, he asserted.

Sukhbir Singh Badal should stop the drama of crying hoarse over the closure report filed by the CBI in the incident pertaining to the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji at Bargari as it was during the tenure of the SAD-BJP regime that the sacrilege incident took place.” These views were expressed here today by the Cabinet Minister, Punjab, and Senior Congress leader S. Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa in a press communiqué.

Reacting to the decision taken in the core committee meeting of the SAD in which the closure report was rejected, S. Randhawa while castigating the SAD President said that if the latter cared so much about the Sikh interests as he loudly professes at every platform then he should get the closure report rejected by the Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal in the meeting of the Union Cabinet instead of the SAD core committee. If the Union Cabinet refuses to reject the closure report then Harsimrat Kaur Badal must immediately tender her resignation and show solidarity with the panth.

  Taking the attack right into the SAD ranks, S. Randhawa there is no use meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah over the issue as the latter would not take a decision inimical to the agency which is directly under the command of the Union Government especially his ministry.

The congress leader also described the decision of the core committee of SAD to explore all legal options to take the case to its logical conclusion as a mere farce to befool the public as it wants to present itself as the sole proprietor of the Sikh interests whereas the stark truth is that the interests of the Sikh community have been terribly harmed during the so called Panthic tenure of SAD which is amply exhibited by the sacrilege incident at Bargari as well as the Behbal Kalan firing which was in fact a massacre perpetrated by the akalis. So, now with what moral force are they trying to showcase themselves as the protectors of Sikh interests, questioned S. Randhawa.

Lashing out at the SAD for always discarding the issues and interests of Punjab especially the Sikh community, S. Randhawa said that akalis have always been clinging to the BJP which has no love lost for Punjab and has never ever cared for the State. The Congress also added that the people of Punjab are sensible enough as they have now seen the devious double crossing game that the SAD is playing on them and soon the akalis would pay for their misdeeds.

TIME FOR CAPTAIN TO DELIVER ON POLL PROMISE MADE TO PEOPLE UNDER OATH AND PUNISH THE GUILTY: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly (LoP), Harpal Singh Cheema, has said that Shiromani Akali Dal’s (SAD) rejecting the CBI’s closure report probing into the of desecration of Sri Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari in 2015, was nothing but a political stunt enacted by the Badals, who were privy to the chain of events.

In a statement issued from party headquarterin Chandigarh on Wednesday, Cheema said that SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal was a master of theatrics who knew how to leverage a given situation in earning brownie points, saying that the Badals, who were privy to the chain of events relating to the act, were now shedding crocodile tears. He said it was disgraceful that those who were allegedly involved in the case as their own government was in power then, were expressing sheer ignorance, out to gain sympathy from the people. Expressing surprise over the hip hop on the development, Cheema said it was only due their overriding intervention in the affairs of investigating teams that those behind the incidents were walking free.

The AAP leader said that by rejecting the closure report and taking it to conclusive end was a mere ploy to further delay the process of justice delivery in league with the ruling Congress government, which, he said, was why investigations under the watch of special investigation team (SIT) was moving at a tardy pace by eliminating all clinching evidences in the incident. The mysterious ‘murder’ of Dera Sacha Sauda follower, Mohinder Singh Bittu, in Nabha Jail was one such example to substantiate the point, he said.

Cheema said that while the SIT probe was underway, the CBI went ahead with the closure of the sensitive Bargari incident, which smacked of a deep conspiracy hatched by the union government, an alliance partner of the SAD, in connivance with the state government, out to protect the real culprits. Cheema demanded that Captain Amarinder Singh should fulfill his poll promise that he had peddled among the people under oath should deliver by bringing those behind the sacrilegious acts to justice, sooner than later.
