Mohali, August 4

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh was yet to reach out to the aggrieved families of over 110 people who died in the spurious liquor tragedy.

State convener and MP Bhagwant Mann accompanied by party MLAs and prominent leaders were detained near Mullanpur barrier for two hours on way to gherao Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh's Siswan farmhouse.

Mann, Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema and party MLAs had a heated exchange of arguments with the police. The leaders raised slogans against the Punjab Government. Some of them, including Garhshankar MLA Jai Krishan Singh Rouri, were reportedly injured in the melee.

Mann alleged: "The liquor mafia is enjoying the patronage of the ruling party leaders. We will expose them. Even if the government and the police throw us in jails, we will keep fighting till the entire state Cabinet resigns on moral ground."

Cheema alleged that the command of the liquor mafia, which was active during the SAD regime, was now with the Congress.
