The Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has earlier proposed the candidature of Shergill from the dais and sought public’s nod. “Our candidate will hand out a convincing defeat to Majithia.”Shergill is a lawyer at the Punjab and Haryana High Court and party’s legal cell in charge. Earlier, he was fielded from Mohali.“We have all gathered here to uproot Majithia from his constituency. The massive gathering gives me confidence that Majithia will forfeit his deposit,” Kejriwal said.
In Majithia’s home turf, he again referred to the criminal defamation case registered against him by the minister in an Amritsar court. And again dared Majithia to get him arrested before the elections otherwise “the public will catch hold of him from the collar and put him behind the bars for flourishing drugs trade in Punjab”.The Delhi Chief Minister accused Majithia of having links with the drug mafia for the past 10 years.
AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira distributed pictures of Majithia, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, his deputy Sukhbir Singh Badal, and Ajnala MLA Amarpal Singh Boni sharing stage with Maninder Singh alias Bittu Aulakh, one of the accused in the Bhola drug racket case, to prove the point.Kejriwal termed Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh as chacha and claimed he earned immunity for his bhatija (Majithia) during the Congress regime at the Centre. “Amarinder never wanted Majithia to lose. Last time, the Congress had fielded a weak candidate against Majithia,” he claimed.
