Jakhar to seek action against 2 Cong MPs

Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar on Tuesday said he will write to party president Sonia Gandhi to seek “strict action” against the “brazen indiscipline” of the two Rajya Sabha MPs Partap Singh Bajwa and Shamsher Singh Dullo, who have “attacked” their own government in the state.
Jakhar’s statement came a day after Bajwa and Dullo targeted their party-led government over the spurious liquor tragedy that claimed over 100 lives, and petitioned Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore for a probe by the CBI as well as the ED into the alleged “illegal” liquor trade.
While extending his sympathies to the families of those who lost their lives in the horrific incident, Jakhar said such tragedies do not give any individual the license to indulge in “indiscipline”.
Jakhar, a former MP, further said it was time to stem the rot and save the Congress from the “petty machinations” of the likes of Bajwa and Dullo, who have “no shame” in biting the hand that feeds them. “Ye jis thali mein khatey hain ussi mein chhed kartey hain (They have no shame in biting the hand that feeds them,” he said in a statement here. He said he would seek “strict action” against the two Rajya Sabha MPs who were “disgracefully exploiting” a tragedy to “further” their own political ambitions and interests. Asserting that the actions of Bajwa and Dullo cannot be tolerated any longer, the Punjab Congress chief said men like these, who do not even have the courage to face elections, are no asset to the party.
