Punjab: Extortion Audio Viral, Congress Against Minister Fauja Singh Sarsari In The Special Assembly Session

Following the Congress’s demand for the ouster and arrest of cabinet minister Fauja Singh Sarari over an alleged extortion audio tape, the second day of the special assembly session in the Punjab assembly witnessed a heated debate between the Aam Aadmi Party and the opposition. 

Moreover, with the rise in the war of words from both the sides, the MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party raised slogans against the Indian National Congress, calling it a B-team of the saffron party.

It all started with Partap Singh Bajwa, the leader of the opposition, accusing cabinet minister Fauja Singh Sarari of being involved in extortion, citing the viral audio clip. Furthermore, he claimed that the party’s show-cause notice to the minister is  insufficient. Moreover, he wanted a response from chief minister Bhagwant Mann on the issue.

However, the assembly speaker Kultar Singh Sandhwan refused to assure the House that CM Bhagwant Mann will release a statement, despite Congress leaders and specially MLA Sukhpal Khaira’s request. Additionally, the Congress MLAs demanded strict against the Minister. The Congress MLAs were wearing aprons, carrying photos of cabinet minister Sarari, and raising slogans against him.  

Reportedly, minister Sarari and his assistant are heard discussing a “extortion strategy” in the allegedly viral audio tape. However, the Aam Aadmi Party was seen in a defensive mode on the matter. The AAP MLAs raised slogans against the Congress party, accusing it of being the B-team of the BJP. Moreover, the heated war of words between the Aam Aadmi Party and the opposition, led to the adjournment of the house. 

Even when the session resumed, despite the speaker’s request, both sides kept raising slogans against each other. Additionally, LoP Bajwa reminded CM Bhagwant Mann how he sacked minister Vijay Singla over the corruption charges. However, the Aam Aadmi Party accused the Congress party of disturbing the working of the assembly session. “They do not want the house to function,” said finance minister Harpal Singh Cheema. 

Subsequently, the second day of the special assembly session in Punjab, took a dramatic turn after the Congress party’s serious allegations against cabinet minister Fauja Singh Sarsari, citing the viral audio tape.
