AAP leader Raghav Chadha claimed that SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal and Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi have struck a deal amongst themselves to create the drama of arresting Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia in a weak case with the aim of deceiving people.
SAD leader Daljit Singh Cheema recently said that the Punjab Congress is bent upon framing Majithia in a "false case" and arresting him.
Addressing the media , Chadha claimed that Channi and Badal held a "secret" meeting in which a "deal" had been struck to register a "weak case" against Majithia. Police will then arrest Majithia on the basis of "weak grounds" and a "weak case", and the Akali leader will be able to get bail from court in the first hearing next day, Chadha, who is Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) co-in-charge of Punjab affairs, alleged.
"An understanding and a deal have been reached. Badal and Chief Minister Channi will create a drama of arresting Majithia in a weak case to deceive the people of the state," he said, claiming that information regarding the "secret meeting" and preparation of a case on "weak grounds" were provided to the AAP by a senior Punjab police officer.
Replying to a question, Chadha refused to reveal the identity of that police official but said he was a responsible policeman in the Punjab Police. "If the need arises, then we will submit proof in this regard," he said.
Chadha said it was his duty to protect the identity of the police officer. “I do not wish to reveal the identity of the official concerned because it will jeopardize the life and liberty of that officer,” he said.
The AAP leader said it was the responsibility of his party to put information related to the “deal” before the public.
