Eh Dekho Majithia Ki Kari Janda

Bikram Majithia, a senior minister in Punjab’s BJP-SAD government, is also the cousin nephew of Congress’ state unit head Amarinder Singh. Not only this, he represents the Majitha constituency, a Majithia community stronghold, in Punjab Assembly. Bikram is the son of fromer deputy defence minister Satyendra Singh Majithia and brother of union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal. He is currently serving as the Revenue Minister in Punjab cabinet and Youth Wing President in party.

In 2014, Majithia was summoned by Enforcement Directorate in a Rs 6,000-crore international synthetic drug case, something Kejriwal seemed to have picked up to attack leader. Majithia, receiving a notice despite being the brother of Union Minister, made headlines at the time of development. Punjab’s drug menace has been one of the top election agendas for AAP. Kejriwal & co have time and again vowed to end state’s drug problem in their election speeches. In his December 12 speech, Kejriwal had alleged a conspiracy between Amarinder Singh and Bikram Singh Majithia, and alleged former of ‘protecting’ the latter. Kejriwal had further alleged SAD-BJP returned favour to Amarinder by withdrawing all “corruption cases’ against him.
