AAP govt playing politics in presenting challan – Bikram S Majithia
Mohali, (Gurpreet) – Former minister Bikram Singh Majithia today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government was playing politics in presenting the challan under the NDPS Act registered against him by the previous Congress government one and a half years back, even as he asserted that the State DGP had not acted on his complaint of receipt of threatening calls.
Talking to newsmen here, Mr Bikram Majithia said it was condemnable that despite the fact that a case under the NDPS Act had been registered against him on December 20, 2021, the AAP government was yet to submit a challan in the case till now. “Instead of presenting a challan in the case and letting the courts decide on its merits, the AAP government is doing politics”.
When queried on the law and order situation which he said had reached an all time low coupled with an increase in drug menace and communal disharmony, Mr Majithia said “I have also received seven to eight threatening calls. I handed over classified information regarding this to the State DGP but no action has been taken in the matter till now. It seems I have been left to my own fate. If this can happen to me I shudder to think about the fate of the common man”. He said this was the reason top industrialists were choosing to pay extortion rather than report extortion calls to the police.
Answering a query, Mr Majithia said the DGP had given a statement from Amritsar claiming all was well but the factual position belied this claim. “Section 144 has been imposed in many parts of the State. The common man is insecure. Communal disharmony is at an all time high”.
