Ludhiana land scam: Firm owner files defamation case against two AAP MLAs
The owner of Grand Manor Homes, a residential flats project in Ludhiana, filed a defamation suit against Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) leader of opposition Harpal Singh Cheema and deputy leader of opposition Sarvjit Kaur Manuke in a local court of Ludhiana Wednesday.
Baljinder Singh Kahlon, the owner of RK Builders and Developers, alleged that both AAP MLAs used his company’s name for political mileage and defamed it without any evidence or verification of facts. The company has claimed damages worth Rs 100 crore for tarnishing their image and dragging their name in a ‘scam’. The suit was filed in the Court of Civil Judge Shivani Garg. The court has issued summons to both MLAs for next hearing, scheduled for March 7.
