Not a political decision: Badal


Not a political decision: Badal

Tribune News Service

Muktsar/Chandigarh, April 9

Former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Tuesday denied the allegation that the transfer and removal of IGP Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh from the SIT probing the October 2015 police firing incidents of Behbal Kalan and Kotkapura was politically motivated. He said, “The Election Commission is an independent and constitutional body, just like the Supreme Court and High Court. The EC has no connection with any political party. And the way he (Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh) was acting, such an action seemed imminent.”

Meanwhile in a statement, the SAD condemned Capt Amarinder for accusing the EC of wrongdoing simply because “it has exposed the Congress’ conspiracy to target the SAD and its top leadership and restrained it from this act”.

In a statement here, SAD senior vice president Daljit Singh Cheema said it was shocking that the CM had acted against constitutional propriety and challenged the fairness of the EC, which had acted on a complaint after going through evidence of the same. “The manner in which the CM has vented out his anger against the EC is a proof of his frustration at being caught in the act of politicising a police action following the sacrilege cases,” he alleged.

Former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said they exercised their democratic right and lodged a complaint against the IG with the poll panel after they noticed that he was "acting as a Congress spokesperson and trying to influence the elections".
