Heated Arguments : Bikram Majithia VS Lali Majithia

By 4th February 2017 0 Comments


Punjab minister and Shiromani Akali Dal candidate Bikram Singh Majithia and Congress nominee Sukhjinder Raj Singh Lalli Majithia today had heated exchange of words after the former raised objection over allegedly bringing vehicles inside the polling station.

The state Revenue Minister apparently asked the Congress candidate to take his vehicles out of the polling booth. “Do not break the rules,” a visibly charged Majithia told his opponent.

“Take the vehicles out. Nobody will break the law here. You (Sukhjinder Raj Singh Lalli) are a candidate. You do not know the rules. How could you do that (bring the vehicles inside)? How could you influence (voters)? Take these vehicles out,” he asked Lalli.

The Congress candidate retorted, “Do not try to vitiate the atmosphere.” He then asked his driver to take the vehicles out.

An agitated Lalli also took a jibe at the Akali candidate. “Do not cry when you are losing (elections),” he said.

Majithia hit back by saying, “You will come to know now who is losing.”

Bikram Majithia, brother-in-law of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal, is seeking re-election for the third time from Majitha seat on development plank.

The new entrant AAP has nominated Himmat Singh Shergill from the seat. The high-stakes Punjab Assembly elections to 117 seats
began on Saturday.

Revenue Minister Majithia is the target in the speeches of his rivals across the state for his alleged drug links. AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal has promised to send Majithia to jail by April 15. The Congress has also assured action against him.
Congress nominee Sukhjinder Raj Singh Lali Majithia and AAP’s Himmat Singh Shergill are contesting to end the hegemony of Majithia and the Badals. But people have a question for them: Can they defeat Majithia?
