Amritsar, Punjab: A day after tendering public apology for “distorting” gurbani, Majithia on Saturday met Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh and handed him over a letter of apology. Sources said the Jathedar received the letter from him and said the matter would be discussed in the next meeting of the Sikh high priests.
Bar him from campaign: Capt
Drawing a parallel with the cases of BJP leader Amit Shah and SP leader Azam Khan, Congress candidate Capt Amarinder Singh has urged the Election Commission to bar Revenue Minister Bikram Majithia from campaigning in Amritsar for his recent “blasphemous” speech.
Amarinder said: “The EC must go by its recent decision to bar Amit Shah and Azam Khan from campaigning. Majithia’s crime is no less as he distorted gurbani while canvassing in favour of Arun Jaitley.”
Akalis circulate Capt’s property tax paper
Bathinda: With property tax becoming a major poll issue in urban areas of the state, supporters of the SAD-BJP alliance are distributing copies of a document reportedly signed by Capt Amarinder Singh in December 2006 giving his approval for the tax. The document stated the then Congress Government approved the tax in December 2006 for its implementation by June 2007. It, however, could not implement the same due to impending elections in early 2007.
