Chandigarh: The Opposition Congress on Thursday sought from the ruling SAD-BJP combine a white paper on financial assistance to the state from the Centre during the UPA and NDA regimes.

"The Punjab government should bring a white paper on the financial assistance the government had received during the NDA and the UPA regime," Leader of Opposition Rajinder Kaur Bhattal said.

"The white paper will clear all the misleadings of the ruling party in Punjab," she said.

Participating in the motion of thanks on the Governor's address in the state Assembly here, Bhattal said, "Attempts have been made in the governor's address to hide the weaknesses of the SAD-BJP combine government... the address is baseless, false and misleading."

Earlier, the House also condoled the death of former MP and MLA Prem Singh Lalpura.
