CHANDIGARH, April 27: Several Congress leaders and legislators today took strong exception to Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal’s unparliamentary language against senior Congress leaders, former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Capt Amarinder Singh and the CWC Permanent Invitee Jagmeet Brar telling him that it only betrayed his arrogance.
In a joint statement senior leaders and former ministers including Mr Lal Singh, Darshan Brar, Sukhpal Khaira, Gurpreet Kangar, Jassi Khangura and others said, Sukhbir Badal was yet to come out of the Chinese hangover and hence he was making insensitive statements which did not make any sense.The Congress leaders asked Sukhbir that instead of accusing Congress leaders of lying, he should better look within. “It is an established fact and common knowledge that you and your father Parkash Singh Badal are proclaimed liars and both of you have proved it not only in word but in deed and not once but umpteen times”, they told Sukhbir while adding, the people of Punjab will no longer be fooled with your lies.
Counting Sukhbir’s lies they told him, “now after returning from China you have started selling Chinese dreams to people of Punjab probably forgetting that earlier you had tried to sell similar Californian and French dreams to the same people”. The Congress leaders said, “now people have understood what you mean by saying that you will turn Ludhiana into Paris, Bathinda into California, run metros in different cities, make Punjab power surplus within three years and so on and they will certainly call your bluff in the coming elections”.
