He said Chatrath by taking unilateral decision for
issuing show-cause notices to him and Dhillon has kept aside all the
rules to the winds by not convening the DAC meeting.
Sodhi said, “I received a telephonic call from Bhag Singh, former MLA and DAC member, who has confirmed that it can be the individual view of Chatrath as no meeting has taken place even to discuss this issue”.
“Chatrath’s autocratic attitude exhibits that have fallen into the trap of Bajwa, who is under the illusion that he would be the chief minister in 2017, which he has been claiming during the election campaign, to get the post of Punjab advocate general. Instead of seeking explanation from Bajwa for losing by a huge margin of more than 1,37,000 votes in his home turf, Chatrath has trained his guns on loyal and devoted workers of the Congress. This is highly partisan attitude nonetheless expected from a seasoned and experienced leader like Chatrath,” Sodhi said.
He said, rather Bajwa should be answerable to the people about the poor performance of Congress in Punjab when the recently constituted Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had taken more seats than Congress. He said, at the time of allotment of tickets to candidates, Bajwa had misguided the Election Committee with the result there is worst performance in the Punjab by the Congress.
Sodhi asserted that he is true Soldier of Congress and working with the party for the last 35 years and even his family members have left no stone unturned in serving the Congress party. He said, he is winning the Guruharsahai Assembly seat since 2002 regularly and he is committed to honour the interests of the party and workers of his constituency but he has no faith in DAC committee constituted under the leadership of Chattrath.
He said, he will reply with logics on receipt of any notice from the party.
