Reacting to selective media reports of dossiers of rebel ministers and MLAs reportedly submitted to AICC’s Kharge panel by Capt Amarinder Singh, Jalandhar Cantt MLA Pargat Singh has dared the Chief Minister to make public the names of the party leaders.

“If my name is included in the dossier, then let me know,” he asked the CM. 

The Chief Minister was quick to thrash allegation of the MLA on keeping dossiers of party colleagues. “Never done such things in my entire political career. My mantra for governance is trust and transparency,” he said in his tweet.

Earlier addressing a press conference, Pargat Singh questioned the Chief Minister on leakage of reports of selective minister and MLAs, he pointed towards allegation of a minister to the Chief Minister having taken double land acquisition compensation. “If we have given in writing, them it is a confessional statement that we are running a corrupt government,” he said.

Pointing towards Irrigation scam, the MLA said no action had been initiated against tree IAS officers and two politicians. “In the Rs 1,200 crore scam involving engineer Suriderpal Singh Pehalwan, no bureaucrat or politician has been questioned as had involvement of more people,” he added.

Considered close to Amritsar East legislator Navjot Singh Sidhu, Pargat Singh also questioned the administrative capability of Amarinder Singh in running the state government.
