Shiromani Akali Dal | Bikram Singh Majithia on Donation from China in Punjab CM Relief Fund

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Tuesday asked Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to practice what he preached and return the money received from two Chinese companies for the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

While answering a media query, former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said that as per media reports, the CM Relief fund had received Rs 25 lakh from a Chinese electronic company Xiaomi on April 2 and Rs 50 lakh from Ola which was funded by Chinese investors.

He also said that since the chief minister had raised a big issue of funds received from Chinese companies by PM Cares during a press conference on Monday, he should return the money received from these two companies as well as any other donation by any company associated with Chinese investors.

The Chief Minister had urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to return funds received from Chinese companies towards the PM CARES Fund just ahead of conflict at Line of Actual Control.
