Due to their nexus, Channi government is not taking action against liquor mafia: Ahbab Grewal

Chandigarh, January 6

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab leader and spokesperson Ahbab Grewal has accused the Congress government of deliberately not taking any major action in the cases registered against the liquor mafia in the state. In a press conference held at the party headquarters on Thursday, Grewal alleged that the Channi government was trying to suppress the illicit liquor case registered against Congress MLA Parminder Singh Pinki. He said that despite the strong evidence that Pinki’s brother-in-law Harjinder Singh Sangha was involved in the illegal liquor business; no action has been taken so far.

Grewal said that in this case, the driver of Harjinder Singh Sangha has clearly told in the affidavit filed on 22 February 2021 to the investigating agency ED (Enforcement Directorate) that he (driver) used to pick up liquor in the vehicle of Harjinder Singh Sangha and named the places where he used to deliver. Complete information about bank details related to illegal business of liquor is also given in the affidavit. Despite having so much solid evidence, the Channi government is deliberately not taking any action against its MLA. Grewal said that liquor mafia has full blessings of Channi government. He accused the Congress government of promoting the officers involved in this illegal business with the liquor mafia and said that instead of taking action against the officers involved in the liquor mafia, the Congress government was honouring them by promoting.
