“ cases against Akalis meant to suppress people’s outcries in this hour of extreme crisis “
Chandumajra asks govt to tell why disaster management funds not being used to save people against Covid
“ Reveal where funds received from Center have been diverted “ : Chandumajra
Chandigarh, June 8 : The Shiromani Akali Dal today blasted Capt. Amarinder Singh led Congress Government of state for trying to suppress those who are standing by the people in their hour of unprecedented crisis.
SAD Senior Vice President Prof. Prem Singh Chandumajra was reacting to the “ bizarre and ridiculous decision of the state government to register false cases against Akalis for protesting against the Health Minister Balbir Sidhu for his rampant corruption and playing with the lives of Punjabis in Covid calamity.
The Akali leader said that the SAD will not stop standing by the people. He dared the govt to “ unleash its full might to repress us and see how Akali warriors stand against it and will not abandon the people at the mercy of the govt.
He said, “ They are out to oppress and crush the voice of the people by registering false cases against peaceful and disciplined soldiers of SAD who protested against Balbir Singh’s act of toying with the health of the people for allegedly corrupt personal gains. “
Cong government, said the Akali leader, was trying to suppress voices who are demanding facilities for people during this time of pandemic.”
In a statement released here today,Prof Chadumajra said that Amarinder Government has proven to be a disaster for Punjabis and has completely failed to take care of people in this health crisis.
Prof. Chandumajra said that Congress government has completely let the people down in this time of Corona virsus and its minister led by Capt. Amarinder have caged themselves in their farm houses. He said that when Akali Dal raised its voice against failure of government and demanded that government should provide free vaccine and health care to people, the government is resorting to suppressing its voice measure by registering cases against its leadership.
He said that this has come at a time when the SAD had fully following COVID norms at dharna staged in front of Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu demanding his resignation and all its leaders were wearing masks and following other protocols. He questioned Government if demanding resignation from a minister who failed to deliver is crime? He said that in a democracy people have right to question governments but this government is behaving like a dictator.
He reminded the Chief Minister that it is only Akali Dal and Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) which have extended helping hand to Punjabis and provided free oxygen sewa and langar sewa for COVID infect people at their door steps. He said that SGPC has established COVID care centres at number of place.
Akali leader said that Governments of different states have spent their disaster fund for providing relief to COVID infected people but Punjab Government is silent on spending this fund. He asked the government on where it was using this fund and whether this pandemic is not a disaster for government? He said that it is utterly shameful that Congress government is least bothered about lives of Punjabis and 15000 have already lost their life.
He said that SAD is not bothered about repressive action of the Congress government and will continue to serve people and raising its voice against injustice meted out to Punjabis.
