Innocent Admission

Khaira urges Capt Amarinder to take concrete action against politician, police, liquor mafia nexus

Chandigarh, Aug 7, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

In a hard hitting statement released here today, Sukhpal Singh Khaira MLA and former Leader of Opposition castigated Capt. Amarinder Singh for enacting a drama by visiting the hooch tragedy affected families almost after a week.

Khaira said the belated visit was nothing but a hollow sham as you offered nothing meaningful to the affected families other than announcing a minor increase in ex gratia grant, some little pensions, few houses for the poor etc.

Khaira said the worst part of his visit was in that he was accompanied by Congress MLAs like Ramanjit Singh Sikki of Khadoor Sahib, who has been openly accused for being a part and parcel of the hooch tragedy through his personal staff. I expected that Capt. Amarinder Singh would make major announcements that would include the arrest of source of the hooch tragedy that occurred with the blessings of the powerful politician – police – liquor mafia nexus.

Khaira said even the proposal to appoint a special prosecutor to defend the state against hooch tragedy mafia was laughable, as he had heard about special courts but had never heard about special prosecutors, as the state is duty-bound to defend all cases against accused in criminal cases through its prosecution team.

Now that Capt. Amarinder Singh has admitted that the hooch tragedy wasn’t an accident but the handiwork of liquor mafia which amounted to murdering innocent people, he cannot escape responsibility for these murders by merely punishing petty officials and petty smugglers.

Khaira said Capt. Amarinder Singh must explain what action he proposes against his own self being the CM, Excise & Taxation Minister and the Home Minister of Punjab, as the entire hooch tragedy episode is a result of his negligent, callous and inefficient working.

Khaira said the chronology of events unfolding after the hooch tragedy clearly show the dubious conduct of Capt. Amarinder Singh to skirt core issues culminating into a holocaust of this magnitude.

He said his delayed visit ,an eyewash type inquiry and failure to nab main culprits even after so many days, definitely confirms attempts by his government to put the whole matter in a cold storage and shield main culprits, just like he shielded the then tainted Minister Rana Gurjeet in the sleazy mining scam for good eight months.

Khaira reiterated his demand for an independent judicial enquiry by a sitting judge of the High Court, as the Commissioner Jalandhar will never be able to proceed against the said powerful political, police and liquor mafia. Khaira also urged the Capt. Amarinder Singh to enhance the ex-gratia grant to Rs.25,00,000 per family and one government job to those killed due to his ineffective government machinery.
