Amarinder will brief CM Mann on corrupt ex-ministers

Punjab Lok Congress chief spokesman Pritpal Singh Balliawal said on Saturday that his party leader Amarinder Singh would soon meet Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and share with him the names of former ministers and lawmakers who allegedly involved in illegal sand mining and other corrupt practices.

A few days ago, Punjab Congress leader Lok and former chief minister Amarinder Singh said he was ready to reveal the names and give further details of all former ministers and MPs allegedly involved in corrupt activities, including illegal sand mining, during his tenure. .

The former chief minister’s remark came in response to former minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa’s statement that the state government should order Punjab police to interrogate him to get the names of former ministers and MPs implicated in corrupt practices under his regime.

On May 26, the ruling Aam Aadmi party in Punjab had asked both Amarinder Singh and Randhawa to make public evidence of the involvement of then Congress ministers in corruption.

In a video, the PLC’s chief spokesman, Balliawal, said Amarinder Singh and his wife and MP Preneet Kaur would soon meet CM Mann and raise the issue of stopping development funds for Patiala.

“The issue of names of former ministers and ex-MPs involved in illegal sand mining will be discussed at the meeting. And the names of those who have engaged in illegal mining and plundered Punjab will also be revealed. said Balliawal.

He claimed that the former chief minister had given the names of allegedly corrupt leaders to the Congress high command, but the latter did nothing.

Amarinder Singh was forced to resign as chief minister last year by Congress. Later, Singh left Congress and started his own party.
