Moga, Punjab (June 05, 2014): The astonishing performance by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab has left Punjab’s ruling allies shocked, as if it was political earthquake for them. The AAP’s political emergence in Punjab has made the Badal-BJP combine to introspect.

The “after-shocks” of the Lok Sabha results seems to be adding to the troubles between Punjab’s ruling alliance. The impact was seen during last three days when chief of Punjab unit of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) Kamal Sharma asked Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to act against those Akali leaders who are patronizing drug mafia in Punjab.

“There is no possibility of spreading of drugs without patronage by the ruling in the state and the Punjab CM should act against those Akalis”, alleged Sharma on Monday.

Reacting to the statement of Kamal Sharma, Badal asked him to provide evidence if he had any. “Kamal Sharma should provide evidences on the place of leveling allegations against the Akali leaders. Sharma should not make such baseless statements without having any evidences”, said senior Badal on Tuesday.

When asked as to why revenue minister Bikram Majithia had not resigned even as his name had cropped up in the drug racket, the chief minister said there was no proof against Majithia. “The day we get the proof, we will not hesitate from initiating action. We will not spare anybody — the big fish or the small,” he said.

Confident with having power in the centre, not only Kamal Sharma confirmed his stand on his statement as same on Wednesday but senior BJP leader and incharge of Punjab affairs, Shanta Kumar asked Punjab CM not to run from the responsibility of drug smuggling.

“The state government should take responsibility of drug abuse in the state and it should find solution to the problem. If I had my government in Punjab, I must have taken responsibility”, said Shanta Kumar in his statement on Wednesday.

“We are not leveling allegations but speaking on the problem, which is taking dangerous turn now”, he added.

On the other hand, the Punjab chief minister admitted on Wednesday in Bathinda that the white powder (famously known as Chitta) has developed its roots in the state. He claimed that the government was talking with Rajasthan government to cut the supply line of drugs to Punjab.
