Chandigarh, January 11th
A day after receiving bail on a drug smuggling case, former minister and senior Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia said he was ready to run in the general election against PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu or another congressional leader, when the people of Punjab and his party leadership asked him to.
CM hatched a security threat conspiracy
The Prime Minister’s Security Threat Conspiracy was hatched in the CM’s residence, with the CM and Home Secretary being the main conspirators. – Bikram Singh Majithia, Senior Akali Leader
At a press conference here today, Majithia said it was wrong to say he was afraid of being arrested and ran away. “I was not hiding and the congressional leaders who registered the wrong case against me knew my whereabouts all these days,” he said.
Majithia alleged that senior ministers in the Congressional government and leaders of the BJP and AAP turned to him and even visited his residence, claiming he had been wronged. “I express my thanks to you,” he said.
Majithia thanked the judiciary, his party and supporters for the discharge from the High Court and said he would join the investigation on Wednesday and wash his name clean.
When asked whether his party would punish the congressional leaders for “wrong” trial against him if the Akalis returned to power, Majithia said only time will tell who suffered or not. “I was targeted by the congressional government and its top leadership as part of a vendetta exercise,” he claimed.
He alleged that CM and Home Secretary Sukhjinder Randhawa held daily meetings to accuse him of a false case. “The government even ran away from the PIL hearing on the drug threat in the region to commence a false trial against me under orders from DGP S Chattopadhyaya, which was set up specifically for that purpose,” Majithia said. The same DGP agreed to “compromise” Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security during his visit to Punjab, he claimed.
