On Amarinder's birthday, Congress sweeps Punjab; AAP finishes second, Akali-BJP third (Intro Roundup)
Commenting on Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu's allegation that the Badal family had siphoned funds sent by the Centre, the Aam Aadmi Party said today that it was time for him to act rather than talk.
In a press statement, AAP's Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly H S Phoolka demanded that the state government must set up a "commission to look into the cases related to corruption of Akalis".
Attacking the Badal family, Phoolka alleged that it had largely "benefited during the previous government at the cost of general public".
The Congress must fulfill its promise of put behind bars, people responsible for corrupt practices in the past, he said.
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) had hit back at Sidhu asking him to refrain from playing "petty politics" by "misleading" the people.
