Chandigarh, November 30
SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal has threatened to file a defamation suit against Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann over his statement on former CM Parkash Singh Badal’s pension.
“@BhagwantMann peddling lies by claiming S Parkash Singh Badal took a pension of lakhs as an ex-MLA. Badal Sahab refused to pension & asked GOP to spend proceeds on Edu of the girl child. CM should either produce a record to substantiate claims or apologize or be ready for a defamation suit,” Sukhbir tweeted.
