Punjab News: Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, in a statement, expressed his disappointment with the opposition leaders for avoiding the ‘Main Punjab Bolda Haan’ debate. He noted that during the 25-day “preparatory holidays,” the opposition leaders couldn’t find a single substantial issue to raise against him or his government, which is why they chose not to participate in the debate on Punjab’s concerns.
Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann Challenges Opposition Leaders on Debate Absence
Mann encouraged the public to question the opposition leaders about their decision to evade the debate on Punjab issues. He emphasized that these leaders had been in power for an extended period and were accountable to the people of the state.
Mann stated that the purpose of inviting them to the debate was to allow each leader to present their views, but instead of participating, they opted to stay away, citing trivial reasons. He declared his determination to prevent them from escaping scrutiny and to expose their wrongdoings to the public.
The Chief Minister pointed out historical instances where political leaders, including former Union Minister Balram Jakhar and Captain Amarinder Singh, were associated with decisions related to the SYL canal. He stressed that their actions were seen as betrayals against Punjab, and future generations would not forget these betrayals.
Mann emphasized that the debate would serve as a significant historical document, shedding light on how Punjab had been affected by past administrations’ actions. He emphasized that being voted out of power didn’t absolve these leaders of the wrongs committed during their successive regimes.
