In a meeting of the SAD-BJP coordination committee, jointly presided over by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal and state BJP president Ashwani Sharma, it was decided to meet Governor VP Singh Badnore to present a memorandum to demand independent inquiries into the liquor, seed and ration scams, and to seek release of cane farmers' dues.

The leaders alleged that the government had tried to cover up the liquor scam by striking a compromise between the Chief Secretary and the group of ministers who had been exposed by the former. The meeting also took note of the interstate ramifications of the Rs 4,000-crore seed scam under which farmers had been duped by being supplied spurious seed of PR-128 and PR-129 paddy varieties.
