Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar on Tuesday said he will be writing to the party President Sonia Gandhi to seek action against the indiscipline of the two Rajya Sabha MPs Pratap Singh Bajwa and Shamsher Singh Dullo, who had chosen to back stab their own government.
The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief extended his sympathies to the families of those who had lost their lives in the horrific incident but said such tragedies do not give license to any individual to indulge in indiscipline.
Jakhar described the action of the two MPs, who had yesterday approached the Governor to demand CBI and Enforcement Department (ED) probe into the liquor deaths, as a manifestation of their desperate desire to grab the high seat of power by hook or by crook. “How many times in all these years did they ask for expediting the CBI inquiry into the sacrilege cases (which has since been taken over by Punjab Police) or the ED probe into drugs, launched during the erstwhile SAD-BJP government?” he asked.
Commenting on bajwa Bajwa and Dullo, Jakhar said “ye jis thali mein khatey hain ussi mein chhed kartey hain!” He said he would seek strict action against the two MPs who were disgracefully exploiting a tragedy to further their own political ambitions and interests.
The Hooch Tradegy so far has taken toll on more than 100 lives.
