Chandigarh, August 6

A SAD-BJP delegation today urged Punjab Governor VP Singh Badnore to dismiss the Capt Amarinder Singh-led Congress government and recommend an inquiry by a sitting judge of the High Court or the CBI into the spurious liquor tragedy, besides an Enforcement Directorate probe to recover the “ill-gotten wealth acquired by Congress leaders from illicit liquor trade”.

The delegation, which was led by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal and BJP state president Ashwani Sharma, also urged the Governor to order the confiscation of properties of all those involved in the smuggling of denatured spirit and extra neutral alcohol (ENA) from distilleries.

It demanded that murder cases be registered against all those named by the victim families. It also urged that all 118 victim families as well as those who were severely affected be rehabilitated.

The leaders were accompanied by a victim family. They handed over a memorandum to the Governor and alleged that the liquor tragedy was the direct result of state patronage and this was why people across three districts of Amritsar, Tarn Taran and Gurdaspur were affected by the same lot of contaminated liquor.
