De­clare source of money given to Budh Singh, says Rand­hawa

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Htpunjab -

CHANDI­GARH : Pun­jab co­op­er­a­tion min­is­ter Sukhjin­der Singh Rand­hawa, on Sun­day, asked for­mer min­is­ter in the Akali-BJP govern­ment Bikram Singh Ma­jithia to clar­ify on the source of funds for the do­na­tion given to farmer Budh Singh.

He also de­manded an in­ves­ti­ga­tion from the En­force­ment Direc­torate (ED), if Ma­jithia failed to show that the money was from a law­ful source.

“Ma­jithia is not part of the govern­ment and till now has failed to dis­close the source of the money,” he added.

He also ques­tioned the fact that Ma­jithia has given ₹3.86 lakh to the farmer, when the loan amount was ₹1.76 lakh.

“The Akali leader must ex­plain to the peo­ple that why he picked a farmer from an­other area and could not find any fam­ily to help in his own con­stituency. His ac­tions in­dic­tate how he has de­ceived the peo­ple of his own con­stituency for his per­sonal po­lit­i­cal gains,” the min­is­ter added.
