Oppn takes dig at Bittu, Cong on toll plaza issue

Ludhiana: The opposition parties got here down heavily on Ludhiana MP Ravneet Singh Bittu and Congress birthday party once they laid siege on the Ladhowal toll plaza on Friday. Terming it an election gimmick, opposition leaders demanded that Bittu should explain why he was once silent at the issue for greater than 4 years. Meanwhile, Lok Insaaf Party (LIP) MLA Simarjit Singh Bains alleged Bittu was once seeking to copy him, because it was once Bains who had been continuously elevating the problem and critical the closure of the plaza.
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) district president Ranjit Dhillon mentioned: “We have no objection if this toll plaza is completely accomplished away with. But Congress is doing drama, as they know that quickly, the code of conduct will come into effect. Recently, there was once no such call for from other people to waive off the toll. Then, why are Congress leaders doing this ‘tamasha’, and sitting there since morning?”

He added: “If Bittu says they have been difficult rollback of the toll tax, because the contractor failed to complete the work, then he should ask his government to roll again new taxes like skilled tax, as Congress government too has accomplished not anything except for drama from the day it assumed energy in Punjab.”

Speaking to TOI, Bains mentioned: “With elections not far away, Bittu may be very anxious, as he knows no person is going to vote for him, since he has accomplished not anything in his tenure as Ludhiana MP. This is the reason why each and every other day, either he is busy sending love letters to other ministries and departments, or staging faux protests.”

He added: “As some distance as toll plaza is concerned, there's no doubt it should be close down, as persons are being robbed through the contractor. Bittu was once dozing previous after we have been staging protests for its closure, however nowadays he is projecting himself as a crusader of other people’s rights. He is doing not anything however copying me. His situation is like that of a student who has now not studied for all of the year, but when checks come, he is taking to dishonest to go. But persons are smart sufficient, and they are not going to fall prey to his reasonable tips.”

According to Ahbaab Singh Grewal, state common secretary and spokesperson of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP): “This is a complete photograph op and exposure stunt through Congress. Match fixing between them and the police was once visible to the public, since the police made no effort to evict Congress leaders, who had now not best threatened the company staff, but also caused damage to the valuables.”

BJP district vice-president Parminder Mehta mentioned: “It is a great step taken through Bittu to lock the toll plaza, however I believe he has realized this downside after the passing of five years of his time period. Since elections are going to take place Congress management is making an attempt to rake up this issue. MC should be requested to stop accumulating property tax from public, as it has failed to provide even roads to trip within the city and persons are getting injured whilst driving,” he added.
