Cong used Manmohan Singh as 'Puppet, 'murdered' Democracy: Majithia
Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia today accused Congress party and Gandhi family of 'using' Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh as 'Puppet' and of murdering democratic traditions of the country.
He said Gandhi family and the Congress prefer the king like Captain Amarinder Singh, party's candidate for Amritsar Lok Sabha seat, whom he considered also as a puppet being used by Ms Gandhi whose only goal is to pursue personal interests of the family at the cost of country's development and democracy.
Mr Majithia who welcomed Congress men who left the party and joined Shiromani Akali Dal (B) at village Bagga and Kazikot in Majitha constituency today said the SAD-BJP Alliance had always maintained that PM was a puppet in the hands of the Gandhi family.
"Our stand is vindicated by revelations made in the book of PM's former Media Advisor Sanjay Baru who has described in his book how the PM had little say in the PMO and every file was sent to Ms Gandhi first.
If this is not murder of democracy then what is it?, asked Mr Majithia.
