Ludhiana, Punjab: Aam Aadmi Party candidate from the Ludhiana Lok Sabha constituency and Supreme Court lawyer HS Phoolka today asked Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal to prove his allegation that he (Phookla) took fee for fighting the cases of anti-Sikh riot victims.
“I challenge Sukhbir to prove his allegation within a week or resign from the Cabinet and the SAD,” said Phoolka. Addressing a press conference here, Phoolka alleged: “I fought for justice against Congress leaders like Sajjan Kumar. Now I am up against those who destroyed the Shiromani Akali Dal, the party of martyrs”.
He said he would not file a defamation case against Sukhbir as court cases took a long time. “It is up to the media and the people to decide whether I have stood for what is right,” he said.
