Akali Dal accuses AAP and Congress of forming an unholy alliance

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Parambans Romana has raised concerns over Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s alleged underhand deal with Congress leader Sukhpal Khaira. Romana accused the parties of forming unholy alliances to target Akali Dal. The state government’s decision not to prosecute Khaira in a drug case, despite incriminating evidence, has sparked controversy.

Romana criticized Mann for defending an alleged “drug trafficker” in the Supreme Court and questioned his support for Khaira. He highlighted the calls made by Khaira to a drug trafficker and the unexplained increase in his wealth. Romana linked these actions to the AAP’s participation in the INDIA bloc and alleged alliances with Congress in several states.

Despite not forming an official alliance in Punjab, Romana claimed that the AAP government’s decision to halt the trial against Khaira indicated a mutual understanding with Congress. Romana demanded an explanation from the Chief Minister for his contradictory statements regarding Khaira’s involvement in the drug case and questioned Mann’s stance on corruption. The issue remains unresolved and raises questions about political motivations and alliances in the state.
