Posted on

According to various media reports, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was recently deboarded for being intoxicated. Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal made serious allegations against CM Mann saying that Mann was deboarded from a Lufthansa flight as he was too drunk to walk and due to this the flight was delayed by 4 hours. He criticized the Punjab government for their silence on the issue and sought an explanation on the incident. He also asked AAP leaders including party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to come clean on the issue.

“Disturbing media reports quoting co-passengers said that Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was deboarded from a Lufthansa flight because he was too drunk to walk. And this delayed the flight by 4 hours. He Missed AAP’s national convention. These reports have shamed and shamed Punjabis all over the world,” Badal tweeted.

“Surprisingly, Punjab government is silent on these reports related to its CM Bhagwant Mann, Arvind Kejriwal needs to come clean on this issue. Government of India should step in as it involves Punjabi and national pride. If he is removed If so, the Indian government should take up the issue with its German counterpart.”

Earlier on August 31, a delegation including Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal submitted a memorandum to Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit and demanded a CBI inquiry into the state’s excise policy.

The delegation alleged a scam in the policy.

Badal said, “Scam has happened in Punjab’s excise policy like it happened in Delhi. Just like Delhi LG has ordered a probe into the excise policy case, we demand CBI probe in Punjab also.”

“For the first time, the profit in album license has been increased from 5 to 10. Hence, we have demanded a CBI inquiry,” he said.

The SAD chief said on Twitter that he has demanded a CBI and ED probe into the Punjab excise policy.

“Submitted a memorandum to the Governor of Punjab and asked him to order a CBI and ED probe into the Rs 500 crore scam by the AAP government in Punjab through a “tailored” excise policy designed in line with the Delhi policy. The request, which has already been found, is illegal and the CBI has registered a case.”

The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi is facing heat over its now withdrawn excise policy, with the BJP allying with the Kejriwal government and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who heads the excise department.
