Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu continued his marketing campaign in opposition to the Charanjit Singh Channi authorities right now, declaring that he would go on a starvation strike if the federal government does not make the experiences on medication menace and the sacrilege incident public.
The experiences by state businesses on the medication problem have been submitted within the High Court and Mr Sidhu needs the federal government to share the findings with the individuals.
“The party came to power promising eradication of drugs,” Mr Sidhu mentioned right now.
“But if the government does not open the drug reports, I will go on a hunger strike. We need to show why the previous Chief Minister (Captain Amarinder Singh) sat on these reports. Now this government needs to open these reports. The court has not barred the state government from opening the reports,” he instructed reporters.
The elimination of Amarinder Singh after a year-long festering feud has not introduced a lot peace in Punjab Congress. With Mr Sidhu’s aspiration for the highest publish crashing once more with the number of Mr Channi, the cricketer-turned politician has not eased the stress on the state authorities.
Days after Mr Channi’s oath, he made his displeasure felt with the Chief Minister’s picks for cupboard, state police chief and the Advocate General. The matter was sorted after a lot backwards and forwards, however the truce between the 2 has been uncomfortable.
Last month Mr Sidhu wrote to Sonia Gandhi, itemizing a 13-point agenda on “priority areas” and guarantees made earlier than 2017 polls he mentioned “the state government must deliver upon”.
His ideas ranged from arrest in medication circumstances, creation of agricultural infrastructure and legal guidelines to manage “cable mafia”.
