Will jail Dharamsot once in power: SAD

Nabha, November 2

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today said once the SAD formed a government in the state, it would order a probe into the SC scholarship scam engineered by SC Welfare Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot and put him behind bars within three months.

The SAD president staged a dharna after leading a march to Dharamsot's residence before being stopped midway by the police.

Demanding immediate sacking of Dharamsot over injustice done to Dalit students by allegedly siphoning off Rs 64 crore from the SC scholarship scheme, Sukhbir questioned Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh's compulsion in shielding the minister.

Former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said instead of trying to fool people with new promises, the Congress government should tell why it kept budgetary provisions of Rs 2,440 crore for the SC scholarship scam in the past three years but did not release even one paisa for the same. He said a CBI probe was needed to ascertain the real scope of the scam.

Majithia said it was strange that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who liked to visit states for photo ops as he did recently by sitting on a sofa on a tractor, did not deem it fit to visit Dalit students who had been robbed by his minister. — TNS
