Congress to file criminal case against Badal
Punjab unit of Congress would file a criminal case against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
Ludhiana: Punjab unit of Congress would file a
criminal case against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in
connection with the disqualification of his predecessor
Amarinder Singh from the state assembly in the case of alleged
irregularities in Amritsar Improvement Trust land.
Membership of Amarinder Singh to the state assembly was
recently restored by the Supreme Court which set aside the
decision of the house about two years back.
Amarinder`s son Raninder, who is also General Secretary of
Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC), told reporters here
today that the criminal case would be filed against Badal
for violating the Constitution and conspiracy (in getting
Amarinder Singh disqualified from the house).
Legal experts had been approached for their opinion in
this matter, he said.
A deputation of the senior congress leaders would also
meet Governor of Punjab on this vital issue as the SAD-BJP
government had made a "mockery" of the entire democratic
system, he added.
A final shape would be given to the entire thing in next
few days on the return of Amarinder Singh from abroad,
