Another Punjab minister's 'obscene video' goes viral amid election season

PTC Web Desk: As the political fever in Punjab heats up in the run-up to the Lok Sabha Elections 2024, a new controversy has emerged involving alleged objectionable viral video of a minister. The video, which has put the Bhagwant Mann-led Punjab Government in a tight spot, allegedly features Minister for Local Government Balkar Singh in a compromising situation. This incident has caused a stir just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in Punjab.

Senior leader of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Bikram Singh Majithia has already lodged a complaint with the Governor regarding the video.



Taking to his social media handle X, Bikram Singh Majithia said it was unfortunate that those at the helm of affairs were involved in such incidents. He also referred to similar case of that of Lal Chand Kataruchak, whose "obscene videos" had also surfaced.

Coming down heavily on Bhagwant Mann, Bikram Singh Majithia accused Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann of protecting minister Balkar Singh due to his significant financial contributions to the government, despite an evidence against him.

"Punjab is a land of gurus and saints. Can representatives involved in immoral activities truly represent the people of this sacred land? I demand that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann take immediate action against Balkar Singh, given the substantial evidence against him," said Bikram Singh Majithia.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA Sukhpal Khaira also voiced his concerns, questioning Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann's stance. He expressed dismay over Bhagwant Mann's apparent reluctance to take action against ministers like Balkar Singh and Lal Chand Kataruchak, despite the damaging evidence.


Khaira urged immediate dismissal of both ministers, alleging that their actions had brought shame to Punjab. He also reminded Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of his promises to bring change by appointing ministers with clean image.
