Chandigarh, January 16 – Senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and party mp Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra today disclosed that a section of the media was unnecessarily making a mountain out of a molehill by trying to give the impression that there were dissensions in the SAD and clarified that he stood firmly with party president Sukhbir Singh Badal.
In a statement here, the party mp also clarified that too much was being needlessly read behind the fact that he left the meeting of the core committee midway. “I wish to unequivocally state that I left the core committee meeting in between due to urgent pressing engagements which could not be put off. I took the consent of the SAD President before leaving the meeting and am in agreement with all the decisions taken in the meeting including suspension of mp S Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and S Parminder Singh Dhindsa for indulging in anti-party activities.
Prof Chandumajra said the entire party was solidly behind the party president and was proud of his achievements. “Mr Sukhbir Badal has taken Punjab forward during his term as Deputy chief minister and is known as a development man. It is because of his sagacious leadership that Punjab became power surplus and that the State witnesses the coming of the Mohali international airport besides creation of world class road network”
