Addressing the gathering, in the presence of the CM, the MP said, “SAD chief and former deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal has been threatening officers during his Poll Khol rallies by noting their names in a diary. As a party representative from the constituency, I request you to send Sukhbir Badal and Bikram Singh Majithia to jail, where they can engage in diary writing at leisure.”

He added that the CM should also act against all those involved in drug trafficking or other criminal activities, even if they happened to be him or any other Congress leader.

Gurdaspur MP and Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Sunil Jakhar said Sukhbir should be jailed for looting the state’s exchequer during the SAD-BJP regime.

“Sukhbir keeps saying that if offered, he can improve the finances of the state and that government coffers are not empty. This family has grown its transport business, even after the regime change,” the Gurdaspur MP further said.
