Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh on Tuesday alleged Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal was financing Congress rebels who were in the fray in the state assembly election.

Talking to reporters here, he accused Badal of using the vigilance bureau for transporting money for the rebels.

The Congress leader said stern action would be taken against all the party rebels in a day or two.

Amarinder said he had confirmed reports that the rebels were being paid huge money "ranging from Rs 50 lakh to one crore by the Deputy Chief Minister for damaging prospects of Congress candidates".

The Congress was certain to win at least 70 seats as there was groundswell of support in favour of the party, he said.
