Cong trying to hush up case: SAD

Share This

Chandigarh, August 3

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Monday said the Congress government had gone "into panic mode as the roots of the liquor tragedy led to the Chief Minister's Office".

In a statement here, SAD spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema, while commenting on "identical statements" released by four different ministers, said the parroting of old lies indicated that Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and his coterie had become jittery that given the scale of the human tragedy an independent inquiry by a sitting judge of the High Court or the CBI would nail them.

'No will to act'

Four ministers have been told to launch a politically motivated counter-attack on the Akalis instead of making any effort to nab Cong leaders and distillery owners responsible for the death of over 100 persons — Daljit Cheema, SAD spokesman

"Four ministers have been told to launch a politically motivated counter-attack on the Akalis instead of making any effort to nab Cong leaders and distillery owners responsible for the death of over 100 persons," he said.

Stating that the SAD would not rest till justice was done to the victims, Dr Cheema said: "No amount of damage control by even the entire Cabinet can save the erring Congress men."

"Punjabis were expecting that the ministers would go to the Chief Minister and explain the magnitude of the tragedy to him. Instead they, including Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu, are indulging in a cover-up exercise indicating they have a stake in ensuring a quick burial of this issue," he alleged. — TNS
