Chandigarh, June 23

The SAD and BJP today decided to participate in the all-party meeting called by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday and asked him to call another meeting next week to discuss the illicit liquor, seed and ration scams, besides other issues.

The SAD-BJP coordination committee noted that the state exchequer had lost Rs 5,600 crore due to illegal distilleries and bottling plants, besides release of illicit liquor directly from distilleries. In the seed scam, farmers had lost Rs 4,000 crore due to sale of spurious seeds. The committee said a discussion should be held on all the three scams to assess the losses suffered by the government and farmers. Sukhbir Singh Badal, president, SAD, demanded that other issues should also be taken up in the all-party meet. — TNS
