Prime News, National (Chandigarh), Oct 22:- Shiromani Akali Dal leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal slammed former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday over the captain’s announcement that his new political outfit can even go with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming Punjab election.
Badal alleged that there was a deal between Captain Amarinder Singh and the BJP to brush under the carpet the corruption investigation going on against the Captain and his family members.
“The extent to which Captain Sahab compromised with Bharatiya Janata Party became very clear when cases of black money in Swiss Bank accounts, enforcement directorate and income tax cases (against him) were brushed under the carpet when he became the Chief Minister. Their deal was very clear,” said Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
Former Union Minister Badal went on to allege that, “A Chief Minister who had taken the oath for Punjab becomes helpless to an extent that he hands over the farming of Punjab to Modi-Shah and stops agriculture in the state.” (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
