Capt faces embarrassments in Majitha, shown black flags
Former Chief Minister and Congress candidate for Amritsar Lok Sabha seat Captain Amarinder Singh today faced huge embarrassment when he was shown black flags in the Majitha constituency.
The anguish from the public at village Abdal came out in the open when he was on his way to attend an election meeting, organised by a controversial figure Baba Ram Singh, a criminal and thug in the area against whom various cases of frauds and bungling had already been registered.
The public came out on the roads in Abdal when Captain's cavalcade was passing through and carrying the black flags they shouted slogans against him. The security personnels accompanying Captain Singh pushed away the protestors who were peacefully gathered on the sides of the road. They were shouting slogans that Baba Ram Singh who was expelled from Shiromani Akali Dal (B) last year as he indulged in various criminal and fraudulent activities.
The protestors who had been duped by Baba Ram Singh carried the placards with the message depicting that "Captain Amarinder Sanu Sade Paise Duwao, Thagga Nu Muh Na Lao" (Captain Amarinder help us getting our money back, Why are you embracing the thugs). Capt Singh however did not stop and listened to the protestors and rather asked his security personals to push them away.
People said they wanted to take up the matter with Captain that why he was attending the meeting of those people who had duped many people and indulged in extortion on the pretext of giving them jobs, LPG gas connections and was involved in various land related cases.
