Reiterating that he was open to inquiry by any agency into what he claimed as his transparent land transactions, the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Partap Singh Bajwa on Saturday accused the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his Deputy Chief Minister son Sukhbir Singh Badal of ÔÇ£being synonymous with corruption and resorting to double standards in public lifeÔÇØ.
Claiming that he had never committed any offence, Bajwa expressed his resolve to carry on his fight to the logical conclusion against the Badal regime.
In a statement issued here, Bajwa said the Deputy Chief Minister was demanding his resignation on the mere allegations levelled against him but he (Sukhbir) along with his father and other associates had been facing trial in a corruption case when they took over the government offices.
He reminded Badals that they had been acquitted in the multi-crore corruption case as the witnesses, including the investigating officers, had turned hostile under what he alleged as ÔÇ£pressureÔÇØafter the Akali Dal came into power.
The PPCC chief said he would take the political fight against the Badals to the logical conclusion and the Congress would give a crushing defeat to the Akali Dal-BJP combine in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections and that would be the peopleÔÇÖs answer to their ÔÇ£loot and politics of vendetta and repressionÔÇØ.
