Punjab Congress leader had promised to open opium vends in Punjab

Capt Amrinder Singh

Capt Amarinder Singh, the President of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, has forgotten that his aide and Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Bhullar had promised that if the party formed the government in Punjab, the opium vends would be opened in Punjab.

Bhullar had promised to open poppy husk and opium outlets in Punjab if Congress formed a government in 2017 polls. Bhullar had made the statement in front of Amarinder during a rally.

The entire Punjabi community would be shocked to hear that the Congress leader had given the statement in front of Capt Amarinder Singh.

Bhullar made the statement in a public rally which was also attended by Punjab Pradesh Congress head, Capt Amarinder Singh at Amarkot in 2015. Sukhpal Singh Bhullar is a staunch supporter of Capt Amarinder Singh.

Bhullar had stated that poppy husk and opium vends would save the people of Punjab. When media had asked him the question regarding his absurd statement, Bhullar said, “The opium and poppy husk vends would save the lives of people as poppy husk and opium were the best options for curing the different diseases.”

Bhullar had said, “The only way to get rid of heroine is to legalise it. The US did the same. The drugs being produced illegally are impure which are killing Punjab youths.”

How such leaders who favoured the drugs would bring revolution in the state?

The Congress party is boasting that it would eliminate the drug menace from the state if the party forms the government. However, the statement of Capt Amarinder and his aide, Bhullar differ. It seems that party is directionless over the issue of drugs.

On the one hand, Amarinder claiming that he would eliminate drugs and on another, Bhullar demanding the opening of liquor vends. How such leaders would bring revolution in the state. The Congress party has been moving towards its end in the state.
