Will return Padma award if Badal, Saini arrested: Phoolka


Will return Padma award if Badal, Saini arrested: Phoolka

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 12

Reacting to Congress ministers’ “jibe”, former AAP MLA HS Phoolka said that he was ready to return his Padma Shri if that was the precondition to arrest former CM Parkash Singh Badal and former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in Behbal Kalan police firing incident.

Raising voice against government’s inaction, Phoolka had resigned from the Vidhan Sabha last year. But the resignation was accepted by the Speaker last week only after Phoolka threatened to go to Supreme Court against the delay in the acceptance of his resignation. Phoolka had also appealed to five other MLAs to resign from the Vidhan Sabha.

However, reacting to Phoolka’s resignation, in a joint statement on Sunday, Cabinet ministers Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Sukbinder Singh Sarkaria and Gurpreet Singh Kangar had called it mere a political stunt.

The ministers had challenged Phoolka that if he was genuinely concerned about the issue and its implications, he should have returned the Padma Shri awarded to him by the BJP government, which had pressurised the CBI into filing a closure report in the Bargari case.

Reacting to the challenge, Phoolka said if returning Padma Shri was precondition to arrest Badal and Saini, he was even ready for that.


‘Ready for that’

If returning Padma Shri is precondition to arrest Badal and Saini, I am ready for that.  — HS Phoolka, AAP  Ex-MLA
