Chandigarh, August 4

Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar today accused Rajya Sabha MPs Partap Bajwa and Shamsher Dullo of indulging in anti-party activities, while citing rumours of the two leaders being in touch with the BJP.

Jakhar's statement against the two former PPCC chiefs came a day after the latter opened a front against Capt Amarinder Singh, seeking a CBI and ED probe into the spurious liquor case.

Exploiting tragedy

The two leaders have crossed their limit. Both are exploiting a tragedy to further their own political ambitions and interests. I will write to AICC chief for action against them. — Sunil Jakhar, PPCC chief

CM ignorant

We have been raising the issue with the Chief Minister for long. If Jakhar had the courage to question the CM on his constant ignorance of these issues, precious lives could have been saved. — Partap Bajwa, MP

Jakhar said he would be writing to party president Sonia Gandhi to seek action against the two leaders for their "brazen indiscipline".

The PPCC chief described the attack of the two MPs on their own government as a "copy-paste job" of what happened in Rajasthan in January in the wake of 107 infant deaths when Sachin Pilot had flayed his own government. "Had action been taken against Pilot at that time, the present situation in Rajasthan would have been avoided," he said.

Though the Chief Minister chose not to reply to the targeted accusation, the PPCC chief said, "The two leaders have crossed their limit. It is time to stem the rot and save the Congress from the petty machinations of the likes of Bajwa and Dullo. Both are disgracefully exploiting a tragedy to further their own political ambitions and interests." Jakhar said their attacks had increased after Capt Amarinder announced his decision to contest the 2022 elections.

Meanwhile reacting to Jakhar's statement, Bajwa and Dullo "advised" him to visit the families of the deceased rather than being so critical of their demand for a probe by the CBI and the ED into the spurious liquor tragedy.

Bajwa said: "We (Bajwa and Dullo) have been raising the issue of the thriving liquor mafia with the Chief Minister for long. If Jakhar had the courage to question the Chief Minister on his constant ignorance of these issues, precious lives could have been saved."

"I have not backstabbed the party and do not have any political design," he said. The MPs said they were Congress loyalists, but not of leaders "who are looting the state under the garb of welfare and good governance".
