Majithia blames CM for criminalizing politics by appointing jail inmate as Chairman of Anandpur Sahib Market Committee

Chandigarh, June 1

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today condemned chief minister Bhagwant Mann for criminalizing politics by appointing a jail inmate who had been booked under Section 306 for abetting suicide as Chairman of the Anandpur Sahib Market Committee even as it expressed shock that four Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) functionaries had been appointed Chairmen of Improvement Trusts which had been dissolved by the AAP government.

Expressing shock at the collapse of governance in Punjab under AAP reign, senior SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia said “the AAP government has achieved the dubious distinction of touching new lows day after day”. Asking the chief minister to explain his conduct, Bikram Majithia said “it is not conceivable that the government was not aware of Kammikar’s case especially considering his close proximity to the chief minister. The very fact that he has been appointed Chairman of a Market Committee despite being arrested after being accused of driving a person to commit suicide by jumping into the Bhakra canal speaks of his closeness to the chief minister. It also sends across a clear message that this anti-people and corrupt government does not care for the law of the land and will do as it wishes regardless of the consequences of its actions on civil society”.

Majithia said the appointment of Kammikar was also damning proof that the AAP government was least interested in cleansing politics but instead was encouraging criminals which was responsible for the rapid deterioration of law and order in the State.

The SAD leader also expressed shock that the chief minister had appointed four Chairmen to Improvement Trusts which had been dissolved in October last year. He said the government had dissolved nine Improvement Trusts by terming them as white elephants and a drain on the public exchequer. He said out of these nine Trusts, the chief minister had now appointed four Chairmen for Trusts of Malerkotla, Macchiwara, Kartarpur and Nangal. Mr Majithia said this again was proof that the chief minister did not have any respect for the law of the land and was ready to ride roughshod over even his own government’s orders. “All this is also happening because Mr Bhagwant Mann is cut off from governance and has started issuing arbitrary orders without following due procedures”, Mr Majithia added.
