The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has levelled serious allegations against Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia. The AAP leader and Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema said that in Dayalpura village of Kartarpur area, Bikram Majithia had his goons beat up girls and women protesting for their rights on land.
Addressing a press conference along with AAP Punjab Chief Spokesperson Malwinder Singh Kang in Jalandhar on Monday, Harpal Cheema said that for their rights on 17.5 acres of land in Dayalpura village of Kartarpur, along with the local labor union and student union a number of girls and women were demonstrating. Meanwhile, Bikram Majithia’s goons reached there and started beating the women.
Cheema also showed the video of the incident to the media in which some people were seen manhandling the women and girls present there. Cheema said that this incident is a proof that the Akali Dal is losing the Jalandhar bypoll badly. Due to the fear of defeat, they are so furious that now they are physically abusing people.
Harpal Cheema criticized the Akali Dal and said that the attitude of the leaders of the Akali Dal from the beginning has been to suppress the voice of the people through their goons. But now we will not tolerate their hooliganism. Our government will not allow further atrocities on the people of Punjab.
Minister Harpal Cheema warned the Akali Dal and Bikram Majithia that he should immediately apologize to the girls for this incident, otherwise strict legal action will be taken against all those involved in this matter.
