- Khaira suffering from mental sickness tries to remain in media highlights by issuing baseless statements daily: Channi
Chandigarh, March 10: Senior Congress leader and cabinet minister of Punjab Mr. Charanjit Singh Channi has asked the Aam Aadmi Party leader and leader of opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira to refrain from giving false statements to the media. In a press statement issued here today, Channi said that the statement given by Mr. Khaira against him is false and baseless. He asked Khaira to withdraw his statement immediately or else he would be forced to file defamation case against Khaira.
Mr. Channi has made it clear that as a cabinet minister in the government now and earlier as opposition leader, he has always raised the issue of illegal mining and is strictly against any kind of illegal mining. He has made it clear that none of his family members or no relative have any link with the legal or illegal mining.
Mr. Channi said that in reality, Aam Aadmi Party has been marginalized in Punjab and Sukhpal Khaira daily creates new drama to stay in the media headlines. Mr. Channi said that it’s an open secret that how Sukhpal Khaira became the leader of the legislative party by hatching a conspiracy against Aam Aadmi Party leader Mr. Phoolka.
In the leadership of Khaira AAP miserably failed in all elections in Punjab which includes Gurdaspur Lok Sabha bye election, Municipal Council & Corporation elections and now the graph of AAP has gone down to zero in the state. Mr. Channi said that due to this Khaira is suffering from mental sickness; he is trying to save his position in the party by issuing baseless statements daily.
Mr. Channi also made it clear that he started his career from student politics, remained Municipal Councilor, twice president of Municipal Council and is third time MLA and through his whole political career he has maintained a clean image and no one has ever raised any finger against him. He also clearly stated despite of such mischievous attempts truth would prevail and he would always remain clean.
Mr. Channi also said that he belongs to Sri Chamkour Sahib Constituency where satluj river, two other small rivers and many canals flow and there is abundance possibility of mining in his constituency but he has never allowed anyone to do legal or illegal mining in his constituency or himself tried to indulge in any such activity. So how can he think of doing mining anywhere else also, so such statements issued by Khaira are baseless. He once again retreated that Khaira should immediately withdraw his false statement.
