Senior Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia, along with SAD workers, were detained on Friday by Chandigarh police after they staged a protest near Punjab Raj Bhawan, demanding the dismissal of Punjab government over Hooch tragedy.

The protestors were rounded up at Chandigarh's Sector 3, police station.

"A list of the protestors will be made, and further action will be taken," said a police official.

Majithia's Facebook post claimed that "the Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh met the Hooch tragedy victims' families for 10 minutes, which showed that Captain's government is not bothered about them".

"The Congress may back down from its responsibility towards the people, but the SAD will keep fighting to the last to get justice for these victims", read Majithia's post.

Sharing a live post on Facebook, Majitia wrote in Punjabi: "ਮੁੱਖ ਮੰਤਰੀ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਨਕਲੀ ਸ਼ਰਾਬ ਦੁਖਾਂਤ ਦੇ ਪੀੜਤਾਂ ਨਾਲ 10 ਮਿੰਟ ਦੀ ਮਿਲਣੀ, ਇਹ ਸਪੱਸ਼ਟ ਕਰਦੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਕੈਪਟਨ ਸਰਕਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਕੋਈ ਹਮਦਰਦੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ। ਕਾਂਗਰਸ ਚਾਹੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਬਣਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੰਮੇਵਾਰੀ ਤੋੰ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਹੱਟਦੀ ਰਹੇ, ਪਰ ਸ਼੍ਰੋਮਣੀ ਅਕਾਲੀ ਦਲ 'ਜਾਅਲੀ ਸ਼ਰਾਬ ਘਟਨਾਕ੍ਰਮ' ਦੇ ਪੀੜਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਨਿਆਂ ਦਿਵਾਉਣ ਲਈ ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਤੱਕ ਲੜਦਾ ਰਹੇਗਾ। #HoochTragedy #Protest Shiromani Akali Dal."
