Jalandhar: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday said that no matter how many anti-corruption
bills are formed in the country, this menace will not cease to
exist.

Badal was speaking in a function here organised by Hind
News group, for the distribution of funds for martyrs` family.
"Those who were on hunger strike for a strong Jan Lokpal
Bill will not achieve anything, as corruption will never end
from this country," Badal said.

Talking about the committee formed by the Centre for
waiving loans he said, "When committee for waiving loans to
Kerala, West Bengal and Punjab was formed we were happy but
sceptic about the results. And as expected nothing has
resulted from that, however, my nephew has left me due to the
confusion resulted."
Speaking about the black money stashed abroad Badal
alleged, "Amount of the black money is same as the GDP of our
country and this money is also used in fighting elections".
