Partap Singh Bajwa, President, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) on Friday presides over the dharna by Congress workers for seeking CBI inquiry into drug scam at Bathinda.

Bathinda, February 7, 2014: Partap Singh Bajwa, President, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) today strongly condemned the brutality shown by police with the striking teachers at Bathinda which led to death of a girl child and held the SAD-BJP government and district administration responsible for the death of the infant.
Bajwa who was here to preside over the dharna by Congress workers for seeking CBI inquiry into drug scam here later visited the striking teachers and expressed his solidarity with them and also demanded from the government to accept their demands.  He met the bereaved parents of the Ruth and shared their grief.  He asked Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal to order an inquiry into her death and take action against the guilty Officials.
Bajwa decried SAD-BJP government for turning blind eye to agony of striking teachers and said that even SAD MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal had not visited the mother of Ruth who is still sitting in freezing cold under open sky. He said that what purpose of Nanhi Chhan campaign was if she cannot show sympathy for victim of highhandedness of district administration. He said that instead of listening to the grievances of striking teachers, the civil administration and police intimidated the teachers.
Bajwa later while addressing the Congress workers at dharna organised by PPCC General Secretary Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu and Gura Singh Tungwali President DCC Bathinda (rural), said that all sections of Punjab Government employees were agitating to get their demands accepted. The people of state are living under constant threat and fear for their lives due to political shelter being given to criminals.
Bajwa said that lust for money and power has made all the members of Badal family insensitive and inhuman. He said that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh were doing irreparable damage to Punjab by their acts of omission and commission. He said, Bhagvad Gita has precisely defined the mindset of Badals that “Hell has three gates: lust, anger, and greed”.
Bajwa said that Badal had closed his eyes from the ground realities and he has no concern with the swelling drug mafia. Chief Minister is shielding the big fish involved in drug mafia and said that if CBI probe is ordered into the drug scam, majority of Akali Dal ministers would be in the dock. He said that Punjab Police was working under tremendous political pressure and they are no capable of investigating drug scam which has its arms spread to other states and countries.
Bajwa said that Sukhbir Badal was wasting public funds on useless exercise of holding Progressive Punjab Investment Summit, Agriculture summit, technical education summit and NRI Sammelans. He said that a sum of about Rs. 3 crores was spent on Investment Summit and similar amount is earmarked for Agriculture summit. He said that Sukhbir Badal had said that MoUs of over Rs.65000 crores investment had been signed. He said that Congress had demanded this information under RTI Act and concerned departments have not given any information on status of MoUs.
