Khaira decries Badal's Haryana visit
Phagwara: Targeting Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal for his Rewari visit to mark the Haryana Day, a former Congress legislator on Thursday alleged that forgetting the Punjabi 'Suba Day' the veteran-Akali leader was visiting another state.
Former Congress MLA from Bholath Sukhpal Singh Khaira said here that it was saddening to note that while Haryana and Himachal Pradesh were celebrating their formation day, Punjab had totally forgotten November one- the Punjabi Suba Day.
He demanded that November one should be declared a public holiday in future to commemorate formation of Punjab and a befitting memorial be raised for Jathedar Darshan Singh Pheruman who had made supreme sacrifice for the cause.
He also demanded that PPCC should set up its full-fledged RTI Wing, on the pattern of other frontal wings, for cornering the SAD-BJP government.
