"He said Majithia's goons were openly shooting police officials and intimidating people in Punjab, particularly in the Amritsar area."
Amritsar, April 24 - Congress candidate from Amritsar Amarinder Singh Thursday asked BJP leader Narendra Modi whether he was coming to Punjab to give his stamp of approval to criminalised politics being promoted by the state's Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.

All 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab go to polls April 30.

In an open letter to Modi, Amarinder alleged that Majithia, brother-in-law of Punjab Deputy Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal, was the most notorious character across Amritsar who has been patronising drug trafficking and criminals.

Amarinder Singh said Majithia was recently named in a multi-crore-rupee international drug racket and is likely to face prosecution soon.

He said Majithia's goons were openly shooting police officials and intimidating people in Punjab, particularly in the Amritsar area.

Amarinder is pitted against senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley for the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat.
