Chandigarh, April 11, 2021:
SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said here today that the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh “ is ranting and raving like disgruntled and spoilt kid ” over the High Court verdict in the sacrilege related incident.
“This is midsummer madness in the face of the CM’s double whammy of the impending electoral defeat in the forthcoming Vidhan Sabha poll and the HC verdict. The Chief Minister’s absurd and self contradictory statement is a clear sign that he has lost his mental equilibrium following the twin whammy”
Mr Badal asked the CM “to relax and not get overly jittery in the face of the impending poll disaster in Feb next year.. “ You can keep your bluster for ‘Sarkari bites’ in the Public Relations advertisement. People know the difference between a loud mouthed braggart and a sober statesman.”
Reacting to Amarinder’s statement suggesting that the SAD president was “ merry making prematurely” over the HC verdict even before a copy of the judgment had been officially released, Mr Badal said, “ This is truly hilarious nonsense. Only a person like Amarinder living in a pleasure dome and famous for leisure and luxury culture could even think of merry making while talking about an issue of the most profound gravity such as the painful sacrilege-related incidents.”
The SAD president “ rubbished and ridiculed” Amarinder’s remark that “ Mr Badal’s feelings of vindication over HC verdict were premature as the HC verdict had not even been officially released yet. “
Can you believe that such a statement can be made a Chief Minister who has already announced his government’s decision to challenge the same HC order in the Apex Court ? If the CM is not aware of the HC order, what is he or his government going to challenge in the Supreme Court?
Mr Badal reiterated that he and his party had full faith in the judiciary of the country and that the media reports on the HC verdict on Friday had fully vindicated that faith.
