Punjab Congress leaders question Singla’s credentials

Bathinda: The Punjab Congress leaders today questioned the credentials of the former finance minister, Mr. Surinder Singla, saying he was in league with the Deputy Chief Minister, Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal, and hence had defended the induction of Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal in the cabinet by the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, who throughout his campaign, had been attacking the Congress on dynastic politics. In a statement issued here S. Gura Singh Tungwali President Distt. Congress Committee Bathinda Rural, Mohan Lal Aggarwal President Distt. Congress Committee Bathinda Urban, S. Harminder Singh Jassi Ex-MLA, Kushbaz Singh Jatana and Raj Kumar Lambardar pointed out that Mr. Singla’s name had surfaced in the Ludhiana City centre case in which the former chief minister, Capt. Amarinder Singh was the accused. However, he managed to save himself by arriving at a tacit understanding with Mr. Badal. They said this had now been proved beyond doubt from the praises he had showered on Mrs. Badal. He should now stop camouflaging himself as he had shown his true colours, they added. These leaders pointed out it was as part of this understanding that his aide Mr. Anil Bhola joined the Akali Dal before the Lok Sabha election to support Mrs. Badal. They said as such, Mr. Singla had no moral authority to criticise the state party chief, Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa, who had only reminded Mr. Modi of his stand on dynastic politics from which he had backtracked and had been giving a relentless fight to the Badals by mobilising party rank and file. They said it was this sabotage from within by such leaders as reflected in factionalism which had harmed the Congress in the Lok Sabha elections. They said it was strange that Mr. Singla had joined issues with the state Congress chief rather than targeting the Akali Dal. They said it was ironic that the leaders like Mr. Singla continued to weaken the Congress and failed to draw lessons from the damaged caused to the party by this opportunism and factionalism. They said such leaders must tell the people on whose side they were as all their statements were benefitting only the Akali Dal, the party which was faced with the anger from the people and against which the Congress was fighting.
