Chandigarh, Jan 16 : Senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and party MP Prem Singh Chandumajra on Thursday disclosed that a section of the media was unnecessarily making a mountain out of a molehill by trying to give the impression that there were dissensions in the SAD and clarified that he stood firmly with party president Sukhbir Singh Badal.
''I wish to unequivocally state that I left the core committee meeting in between due to urgent pressing engagements which could not be put off. I took the consent of the SAD President before leaving the meeting and am in agreement with all the decisions taken in the meeting including suspension of MP S Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and S Parminder Singh Dhindsa for indulging in anti-party activities, the party MP said in a statement here.
Chandumajra added that the entire party was solidly behind the party president and was proud of his achievements. ''Mr Sukhbir Badal has taken Punjab forward during his term as Deputy chief minister and is known as a development man. It is because of his sagacious leadership that Punjab became power surplus and that the State witnesses the coming of the Mohali international airport besides creation of world class road network''.
