- Punjab Congress President Sidhu wants Majithia’s arrest
The High Court has allowed the anticipatory bail plea of Shiromani Akali Dal leader Brikam Singh Majithia, accused in Punjab’s drugs case. Accused Majithia has got relief from arrest till Wednesday and instructions to join the investigation. This decision has given a big blow to Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Deputy Chief Minister CM Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa.
During the hearing, there was a heated argument in the Punjab-Haryana High Court between P. Chidambaram on behalf of Channi Sarkar and senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi on behalf of Majithia. After the outcome of this argument, the high court granted anticipatory bail to Majithia.
Accused Majithia had filed an anticipatory bail application in the Mohali court to avoid arrest, which was rejected. After that Majithia filed a petition in the High Court.
Let us inform that on December 21, 2021, the Congress government of Punjab had registered a case against Bikram Singh Majithia under the NDPS Act in connection with drugs. Since then, Bikram Majithia has been absconding since then.
On the other hand, since coming to power in Punjab, Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu has been continuously questioning his own government for not arresting Akali leader Bikram Majithia in election rallies. Fed up with the statements of the party chief, Sukhjinder Randhawa even offered to leave the Home Ministry. At the same time, the Akali Dal had described the FIR registered in the Majithia drugs case as politically motivated.
