ED raids: Let the law takes its own course

“Let the law takes its own course. If any link is proven, I will be the first one to speak out. However, from the timings of the raids, it appears to be political vendetta,” said the PCC chief in a press meet here. He said the central agencies were being used as political tools during the elections. “For four years, Capt Amarinder Singh did nothing in the sand mining case. Now, suddenly the case has been opened. There is no co-relation between the ED case on sand mining and the drug-trafficking case against Majithia. There is an ED report against Majithia and High Court had sought a report on it”.

Talking about the ‘Punjab model’ for reviving the state economy and improving the skills of youth to make them job givers, the PCC chief said if the ‘Punjab model’ was made part of the party’s manifesto, the party would win 70 seats. He said he had already held discussions with chairman of the manifesto committee Partap Singh Bajwa and the manifesto would be released soon.

He said today people of Punjab were confused, but would make up their mind in the coming days on whom to vote for. “People will give a clear mandate for the party that has clear agenda for future of the state,” he said.

On declaring the CM face, Sidhu said he had never sought any post. “But whatever power of decision-making is given to me, I assure that I will change the state for better,” he said.
