Ghudda (Punjab): Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal on Thursday slammed the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre for being lenient on corruption in various ministries and said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has failed to act against his cabinet colleagues.

Congress has failed to take on his allies and every minister has his own fiefdom, he told reporters after laying the foundation stones of sports school and two irrigation projects here.

"Prime Minister's reluctance to act firmly against his ministers has affected people as Indian treasury has become poorer by lacs of crores due corruption," he said.

He advised UPA to learn from NDA that how a coalition is run in the government. "If Prime Minister is feeling incapable of running the coalition government, he should make way for NDA government in the centre," he said.

On Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh's charges of irregularities in the selection of 312 Doctors by the Punjab Public Service Commission, Badal said the High Court has ordered inquiry into the case by Punjab Vigilance Bureau, which has submitted its report. "It is upon the Court to take a decision on the scraping of selection of doctors by PPSC," he added.
