Sukhpal Singh Bhullar who had promised to open opium and poppy husk in Punjab is the Congress candidate from Khemkaran. Bhullar had openly promised in a rally that if Congress forms the government, the party will open the poppy husk vends.
Interestingly, he made this statement in a public rally which was also attended by PPCC President Capt Amrinder Singh at Amarkot in 2015. Sukhpal is a staunch supporter of Captain Amrinder Singh.
Even the former Punjab Congress President Pratap Singh Bajwa had issued a show cause notice to Bhullar asking him to clarify why he made an irresponsible statement. Amarinder Singh was sharing stage with Bhullar when he made such a blunder. But, Amarinder didn’t stop him or interrupt him during his speech.
It was clear that Amarinder Singh’s aide Bhullar was talking because of the backing of Amarinder. The Punjab Congress claims to make Punjab drug free. Even Amarinder Singh has started a campaign quit drugs get job. But, on the other hand, Amarinder helped Bhullar to get the party ticket.
Capt Amarinder Singh exposed in front of the public for helping a person who openly claimed to open opium vends. Why Amarinder promoted such leader who gave such an irresponsible statement? It means Amarinder has to do nothing with the welfare of people. Amarinder’s aim was to help his aide at any cost and finally he got a ticket for Bhullar.
