SAD condemns Khazana Khali FM for flying off to jaunt in Swiss Alps with family

Chandigarh, Jan 23(UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Thursday condemned ‘Khazana Khali’ finance minister Manpreet Singh Badal for flying off to a jaunt along with his family in the Swiss Alps in the name of attending the Davos Summit adding this would cause further misery to those waiting for the finance department to release funds for development besides release of dues to employees as well as social welfare beneficiaries.
In a statement here on Thursday, former minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said it was shocking that a finance minister who had announced that he was against foreign trips and who had even refused to offer tea to guests to save money, had no qualms about attending repeated annual meetings at Davos. “Manpreet has failed to explain one benefit of attending the Davos Summit last year. He has failed to mention a single investment coming into the State following his visit last year. However this has not dissuaded him from proceeding on a holiday again along with a contingent of officers as well as his family”.
Asking the finance minister to practice what he preached, Dr Cheema said the hollowness of the former’s claims of austerity had already been exposed with an RTI inquiry revealing the presence of 27 air conditioners at his official residence in Chandigarh. “The FM has also spent a large amount of money in modernizing his office even as he preaches frugality to others”.
