Widow: Aid denied for speaking against MLA

Amritsar, August 16

Sarabjit Kaur (42), who lost her husband Parkash Singh in the liquor tragedy, claimed that she was denied ex gratia aid of Rs 5 lakh, announced by the Chief Minister.

Sarabjit had gone to attend a programme scheduled to hand over compensation cheques to kin of victims at Khadoor Sahib on Independence Day. She claimed that she did not receive even a single penny. Sarabjit’s sister Kamaljit Kaur was vocal against Congress MLA Ramanjit Singh Sikki and his PA Germanjit Singh for “patronising” illicit liquor trade.

Kamaljit had accompanied a SAD-BJP delegation that met the Governor over the issue. She claimed Sarabjit and her mother-in-law were shunted out of the programme, which was attended by Sikki, MP Jasbir Singh Dimpa and other Congress dignitaries. Sikki could not be contacted despite repeated attempts. His PA claimed he was not present at the programme. — TNS
