“I have suffered for 18 years for no fault of mine” Jagir Kaur, ‘ I am back to politics with renewed vigour.
Chandigarh, December 6: Like common persons, politicians also undergo great ordeals and trauma when trapped by their rivals in legal wrangles to score political points and irresponsible media trial compound their miseries.
In an observation made after getting clean chit in case of her own daughter, former Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee chief Bibi Jagir Kaur said she herself suffered for 18 long years since the demise of her daughter but finally got reprieve when Punjab and Haryana high Court waived her five year sentence awarded by CBI trial court and declared her innocent.
“ My agony was not limited to hiring of attorneys or attending the proceedings of first the CBI trial court and then of the Punjab and Haryana High Court but also a one sided trail by media which used to draw wild conjectures and pronounced judgments on daily basis and declaring her guilty without any evidence or proof “, she rued.
The perpetual humiliation and emotional torture during this period had ruined her political career and killed her initiatives as she was barred from contesting elections. Though the court has declared her innocent yet clock can’t be reversed, the opportunities that were knocking at her door can’t return, she bemoaned.
However, Jagir Kaur thanked the High court judges for the justice albeit belatedly and also her stars thinking that all are not lucky like her to get justice during their life. “I had time and money to fight my rivals and God had given me strength to bear with the trauma “ said Jagir Kaur.
Jagir Kaur is determined not to let the trauma of 18 years shadow her future course of action and she would be back in politics with a vengeance and is determined to play her positive and progressive role in Punjab politics with renewed vigour and energy.
