Day after Manpreet, Harsimrat spat, blame game on
A day after Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Finance Minister crossed swords over the issue of waterlogging in Bathinda, it was the turn of their local leaders to indulge in a blame game even as the city residents continued to reel under the misery caused by heavy rain here on July 16.
Former Akali Dal MLA Sarup Chand Singla and District Congress Committee (Urban) president Arun Wadhawan held separate press conferences and resorted to political bickering over the matter.
Addressing mediapersons, Wadhawan said, “Harsimrat tried to shift the blame on Manpreet Badal despite the SAD-BJP alliance in power at the local level (MC). Mayor Balwant Rai Nath and former MLA Singla always claimed of not having funds, but MPLAD funds are still lying unused.”
