CHANDIGARH: Lashing out at the misplaced priorities of the Congress government in the state, former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today asked the Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi why he had not ordered a probe into the allegations of corruption in posting of the Senior Superintendents and Deputy Superintendents of Police in Punjab, as alleged by one of his cabinet colleagues, the same way he had ordered a probe into the leaking of the contents of a letter by a police officer to the DGP.

Taking a dig at the Chief Minister’s “alertness and promptness” in ordering a probe into the circumstances leading to the leaking of selective pages of a letter written by a senior police officer to the Director General of Police, Capt Amarinder said, he (the CM) should have shown same promptness when one of his ministerial colleagues had openly leveled serious charges of corruption in the appointment of the SSPs and the DSPs during a cabinet meeting recently.

Capt Amarinder said he understood the despair and frustration of this government as it was getting exposed with every passing day with every fake promise and announcement it made. “You would always ask for just two days of authority to put everyone behind the bars”, he reminded the Chief Minister and some of his ministerial colleagues, while asking, “what happened now, as you are already there for about three months and have not arrested a single person so far”.
