Addressing the meeting, Sukhbir Singh Badal said the Chief Minister and the Congress government were responsible for the murder of over 110 persons in the spurious liquor tragedy. Since Capt Amarinder had refused to own moral responsibility for the tragedy and resign, the party would urge the Governor to immediately dismiss the government, he added. The core committee also reiterated the party's demand for an inquiry by a sitting High Court judge into the tragedy as well as the illicit liquor trade allegedly being run by Congress men.

It was also decided to hold a dharna in front of the office of the Patiala district police chief from August 7 to protest the laxity in the recovery of a 'saroop' of Guru Granth Sahib, which was stolen from Ardaspur Sahib Gurdwara in Kalyan village two weeks ago. Badal would lead the dharna on August 7, after offering prayers at Gurdwara Dukhniwaran Sahib in Patiala between 11 am and 1 pm. Subsequently, the dharna would be held on a daily basis, with party workers from each constituency in the state participating in it, the committee decided.
