Punjab Panchayats and Rural Development Minister Mr Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa today lashed out at former state Congress chief and Rajya Sabha member Mr Partap Singh Bajwa for deliberately sabotaging the party in the run up to the four Assembly bye-elections.
“You have mischievously raked up the sensitive issue of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib when the state government has already questioned the move of the CBI to reopen the case after filing the closure report despite the fact that the investigation had been withdrawn from the central agency by the state government.
Your design has the potential to harm the Congress so that Capt Amarinder Singh can be blamed in case this plan succeeds. You are still harbouring the grudge that you were replaced as PPCC chief by Capt Amarinder Singh as you had miserably failed to perform”, He said.
The Panchayats Minister said the performance of the Amarinder government has been reflected in all the elections till date in the state and this exactly was now the problem of Mr Partap Bajwa.
He alleged that going by his statements, it was now clear that Mr Partap Bajwa was playing into the hands of certain people in opposition and questioning the progress on Bargari sacrilege and related issues despite the fact that the first chargesheet had already been filed and further investigation in progress.
The Panchayats Minister said, “If Mr Partap Bajwa has some objections and reservations regarding functioning of the Amarinder Government as well as on ongoing probe of sacrilege issue then he should discuss these matters on party platforms instead of rushing to media.”
Mr Bajwa asserted Capt Amarinder Singh had reiterated time and again that none found guilty would be spared in this sensitive case and for that the probe would have to reach the logical conclusion.
He said Mr Partap Bajwa should know that history would not spare not only the perpetrators of this crime but also those who try to create hurdles in the way of thorough investigations and as such, there could be no doubt in anybody’s mind on this issue adding Capt Amarinder Singh was the leader who had thorough understanding of the situation and he had already clarified the confusion that was being created mischievously by some people.
Tript Bajwa said that rather than mud sliding on his own party government, Mr Partap Bajwa should work for the victory of the Party candidates in the ongoing four by elections.
