- Former Chief Ministers used to spar on a convoy of 33 cars
- Convoy of luxury cars increased from 33 cars to 42
- Congress leader of opposition also accused Mann
Punjab News: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has now become a VVIP. The reason behind changing from ‘Mango’ to ‘Khas’ is that now 42 luxury cars will run in his convoy. He has even surpassed his former chief ministers in this matter. Only 33 cars used to run in the convoy of former CM Parkash Singh Bad and Captain Amarinder Singh. This same Bhagwant Mann sometimes used to spar on the convoy of 33 cars of his former Chief Ministers. Now he has increased his convoy of luxury cars from 33 cars to 42.
On this decision, the opposition parties have also started their siege.
Congress leader of opposition also accused Mann
Congress leader of opposition Pratap Singh Bajwa has made allegations by tweeting. Retweeting his tweet, Sukhpal Khaira wrote that earlier Bhagwant Mann used to mock politicians and say that those who want extra security, ‘why don’t they do things like open chicken food’. Now the same ‘common man’ has started feeling the need of 42 cars.
Mann was taken off the flight under the influence of alcohol
Recently, Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal had made a tweet regarding Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann. At which there was an uproar. Badal had tweeted that ‘Media reports quoting co-passengers said that Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann was deboarded from Lufthansa flight as he was very drunk and not even in walking condition. Due to this the flight was delayed by 4 hours. Such reports embarrass Punjabis. After the tweet by Sukhbir Singh Badal, the debate in the political corridors had intensified whether Bhagwant Mann was really drunk. Badal had also said that it is surprising that the Punjab government is silent on these reports. Arvind Kejriwal should come clean on this issue. However, later the Aam Aadmi Party, while clarifying on this matter, denied the fact that Bhagwant Mann was intoxicated.
There was a dispute in Jalandhar even before Mann’s visit
Earlier in August, Bhagwant Mann had come into the limelight when Khalistani slogans were written on the posters before his visit to the Punjab city of Jalandhar. SHO Jalandhar Kamaljeet had said, ‘We are checking the surrounding CCTV cameras.’ According to media reports, the police reached the spot and erased the slogan written with spray paint and started investigating the accused by checking the CCTV installed around the Constitution Chowk.
In fact, a day before the visit of Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann, slogans were raised in support of terrorist organization ‘Khalistan’ in Jalandhar. Earlier on July 6, a person from Patiala was arrested by the Karnal Police for supporting Khalistan. The man was accused of writing pro-Khalistan slogans on the wall.
