Ferozepur, May 22

SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal today demanded a CBI probe into an alleged scam in the food material sent as relief to the state, saying a large amount of wheat and pulses sent by the Centre had found its way in the open market through Congress leaders.

Addressing mediapersons here after a visit to Malout, Balluana, Abohar, Fazilka, Jalalabad, Guruharsahai and Ferozepur, where he flagged off trucks carrying 5,000 quintal of wheat to the Golden Temple, he said he had brought the issue of diversion of the central food stock in Punjab to the notice of PM Narendra Modi.

Sukhbir said it was shocking that even as migrants slept hungry in Punjab, the state government allowed diversion of wheat and pulses to Congress leaders, who in turn allegedly sold the stocks in the open market. Demanding a CBI inquiry, he said the food stock was meant for half of the state’s population but not even 10% of the people received the relief. — OC
