Simarjeet Bains speaks up on Kejriwal and AAP Leaders

Announcing that their newly-formed party — Awaaz-e-Punjab — will contest on all the 117 seats in Punjab, independent legislator Simarjeet Bains said this outfit will fill the political vacuum and give people an option for electing a clean government.

“The manner in which the Aam Aadmi Party is functioning, it is clear that it is a party of people who are not true to their words. “The AAP wants to use Punjab as a spring to catapult itself into the national political scene. There was a time when my supporters, too, were pressuring me to join the AAP. But it is slowly getting exposed. I am thankful to God that I didn’t join the party.”
On sacked AAP Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur, Bains said he should have taken a stand against Kejriwal’s ‘so what if you were to be expelled from Sikhism’ remark earlier. “He should not have stayed quiet for so many months,” he said.

When Bains got fake air tickets for London

According to Times of India :
A day after MLA Balwinder Singh Bains formed a new front in Punjab along with brother Simarjit Singh Bains, cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu and former Olympian Pargat Singh, the police booked a man who has allegedly provided a fake air ticket for London to Bains more than two-and-a-half years after a complaint was registered in the matter.
The accused was identified as Inderpal Singh of Urban Estate phase-II in Dugri who is into tour and travel business.
In his police complaint, Sarabjeet Singh of Urban Estate, Dugri, who runs a travel agency, said on September 2, 2013, MLA Balwinder Singh Bains had contacted him for four tickets (for himself, his wife and two daughters) of Qatar Airways from Amritsar to London. He added that as the accused was listening to the conversation when he was searching for the same. Inderpal later claimed that he had contacts in the airlines and would get tickets at lesser rates (Rs 1,000 less than actual rate) than routine fares.
The complainant said as he expected cheaper tickets, he gave him Rs 2.29 lakh (of which Rs 50,000 he had given in advance) for tickets of Qatar Airways. He added that the accused later gave him tickets which he gave to his customers.
Sarabjeet Singh told the police that after some time, the MLA wanted the seats in the non-smoking and vegetarian zone and asked him to ensure that. He added that as he along with his son checked the status of the ticket, he found that same has not been booked.
The complainant said that after that he called the office of Qatar Airways at Jalandhar. They told him that tickets were not booked.
The complainant said that later he got tickets to the customers from his own pocket. He added that even as he kept on asking the accused to return the money, but he refused to do so and played delaying tactics. Sarabjeet went to the police after that.
Police officials said later an inquiry was ordered into the matter by the then commissioner of police on February 26, 2014. They added that after an inquiry by additional deputy commissioner of police (Two), the commissioner asked the Dugri police to lodge a case into the matter.
Police have meanwhile booked the accused under Sections 420 (fraud), 465 (forgery), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) of the IPC.
Dugri SHO Joginder Singh, investigating officer of the case, said the matter is being thoroughly investigated. He added that a manhunt has been launched to nab the accused.
