Chandigarh, May 23 UNI | 2 months ago

Senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Maheshinder Singh Grewal today asked Punjab Pradesh Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa to look into his own family history as well as his recent misdeeds including grabbing village common land before trying to hold Revenue minister Bikram Majithia accountable for anything.

In a statement here, the SAD leader said it was amazing that a person, whose family had a shady past including allegations of being in league with drug smugglers, was levelling allegations against Mr Majithia despite the fact that the same had been dismissed by the relevant courts.

Referring to the past controversies which have dogged the PCC chief, Mr Grewal said, "you yourself have been embroiled in the bitumen scam during your earlier tenure as PWD minister. Your name also cropped up prominently in the Gujarat call girl racket. Recently papers have been tabled in the Vidhan Sabha in which you are shown to have taken over village common land belonging to poor villagers adjoining Chandigarh. It would be best if you could explain your conduct in all these cases rather than trying to deflect attention from your own misdeeds by targeting others", he added.
