Apart from the superseding factor it is now abundantly clear that Capt. Amarinder Singh has appointed Vini Mahajan as CS, on the directions of Mr Ajit Dobal NSA like he got Mr Dinkar Gupta installed as DGP Punjab, alleges Mr. Sukhpal Singh Khaira, MLA, former leader of opposition.

He further alleged that the stoic silence of SAD and AAP on these erroneous appointments confirm that both these parties are now virtually working as the B team of BJP.

In a statement issued here on Sunday Khaira alleged that Capt. Amarinder Singh has virtually surrendered to the BJP while making important appointments in Punjab. Khaira said it was common talk in the corridors of power that Dinkar Gupta who had superseded 5 IPS officers to become DGP Punjab was actually the choice of Mr AjitDoval NSA to PM Modi, similarly now his wife who has also superseded five senior IAS officers has been appointed Chief Secretary of the state on the directions of the BJP government.

Khaira questioned this stoic silence of Sukhbir Singh Badal President SAD over the wrongful, erroneous and unlawful appointment of ViniMahajan as CS and earlier Dinkar Gupta as DGP, both of whom superseded their colleagues. SAD leaders have often been demanding fair representation to Sikhs across the country but by overlooking gross discrimination with Sikh officers in their home state of Punjab Sukhbir Badal has once again proved to be B team of the BJP.

Khaira said that the body language of Capt. Amarinder Singh during his current stint as CM clearly shows his close proximity with the ruling BJP, particularly with the Prime Minister and the Home Minister Amit Shah. Khaira said Capt. Amarinder Singh has often deviated from the Congress line of approach to virtually support actions of the BJP.

Khaira said the repeated Pakistan bashing by Capt. Amarinder Singh on the Kartarpur corridor issue or the border conflicts is the latest example of his closeness with the BJP.

Khaira said it was strange that instead of punishing Mr Dinkar Gupta for making a nefarious comment on Sikh pilgrims visiting Kartarpur Sahib corridor terming them as terrorists trained by Pakistan,Capt. Amarinder Singh has gone ahead to reward him by appointing his wife as CS Punjab.

Khaira questioned this stoic silence of Sukhbir Singh Badal President SAD over the wrongful, erroneous and unlawful appointment of ViniMahajan as CS and earlier Dinkar Gupta as DGP, both of whom superseded their colleagues. Khaira said in normal course the SAD leaders have often been demanding fair representation to Sikhs across the country but by overlooking gross discrimination with Sikh officers in their home state of Punjab Sukhbir Badal has once again proved to be B team of the BJP.

In the same breath, Khaira questioned the silence of Aam Aadmi Party Punjab who have not uttered a single word against these erroneous appointments. Khaira said is it due to the new proximity bondage and closeness between ArvindKejriwal and the Home Minister Amit Shah? Otherwise why would the principle opposition party allow the government to scotfree while making such wrongful appointments.

Khaira said the performance of ViniMahajan as ACS Health had come under fire recently during the Covid 19 crisis in Punjab. Khaira said frontline doctors and nurses had recently protested across the state against poor quality substandard PPE kits and masks provided to them by the health department that was headed by Vini Mahajan. Khaira said although Vini Mahajan may not be a part of the corruption scandal involving substandard PPE kits and masks but as head of the department it was her moral duty to institute an enquiry and punish those guilty endangering the liives of frontline warriors. Khaira said that despite a formal complaint by a doctor from Ludhiana demanding strict action against suppliers of substandard medical equipment, Mrs ViniMahajan completely overlooked this complaint probably to protect and shield guilty culprits.

Khaira said he was highlighting this point just to show the inefficiency and incompetence of the newly appointed CS as Additional Chief Secretary Health. If her performance as ACS Health is callous and negligent what can one expect her to do as CS Punjab, that is a much more challenging job?
