Chandigarh, October 21, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today asked Transport minister Amarinder Singh Raja Warring as to why he was not asking for a free and fair probe into the Rs 1700 crore loss incurred by his department in order to pin down responsibility for the same.

In a statement here, former minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said Raja Warring should demand a free and fair inquiry into the role of his predecessors so that they might be held accountable. “The inquiry should also focus on all the wrong doings in the Transport department in the last four and a half years so that concrete action can be initiated against those guilty of causing such a huge loss to the State exchequer”.

Asserting that Raja Warring should be ready to call a spade a spade, Dr Cheema said the minister should also tell Punjabis if his predecessor had indulged in corruption which had led to the huge losses in the department. “The scams which have occurred in the department during the Congress tenure should be made public in the spirit of transparency by Mr Warring”, the Akali leader added.

Dr Cheema also recalled that Warring was not in the habit of following up on his assertions. He said earlier also Warring had tweeted about the loss caused to the State exchequer by the actions of a former chief secretary and the loss had been computed at Rs 5600 crore by Congress leaders. Despite this revelation, Warring did not follow up on his tweet and demand a probe into the entire issue.

The SAD leader asked Warring to demand an impartial probe by a central agency or the high court into the losses incurred by the Transport department as well as those incurred by the excise department. He said Warring had also been part and parcel of the system due to his role as Advisor to the chief minister.

“It is an issue of collective responsibility. Warring should not try to brush this issue under the carpet and instead should demand the chief minister hold a probe into scams in the transport and excise departments immediately”.
