Cong needs to replace at least 70 MLAs if it is serious from weeding out corrupt & non performers : Sukhbir

Bhoa (Pathankot), Dec 29 (UNI) Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday said the Punjab Congress would have to replace at least 70 of its legislators if it was sincere about weeding out corrupt and tainted leaders and rewarding performance.
Talking to newsmen after addressing a rally in favour of BSP candidate Rakesh Kumar Majotra here, Badal said the Congress could not wash away its sins by blaming 22 legislators. “The truth is that more than 70 of its legislators are accused of collecting petty cash from the people who elected them besides running sand and liquor mafias as was the case with the party’s Bhoa legislator Joginder Pal also”.
He said such persons would not be spared. “We will form a Commission to deal with corruption done during the Congress regime and ensure that legislators who indulged in corruption besides registration of false cases against the innocent are put behind bars”.
