BJP Kisan Morcha's National Secretary and Parbhari Himachal Pradesh Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal said here that unlike the Congress the SAD-BJP alliance did not thrive on vendetta politics, adding that the state government would go by the findings of the revenue department inquiry into shady land deals. Countering Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Partap Singh Bajwa allegations of political vendetta, speaking at the Leaderspeak@HT programme Bajwa had accused the SAD-BJP government of singling him out over land deals. it's 100% political vendetta. The fight won't end here it's just started Bajwa had said. Addressing a press conference here today Grewal said the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) did not believe in the politics of retribution and its priority was overall development of our state. He said our SAD-BJP Government's action would be initiated against every individual found guilty of land grab irrespective of his political affiliation. On the alleged involvement of certain political leaders in drug smuggling Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal said our SAD-BJP state government had already launched a massive campaign against drugs and it was committed to taking strict action against anybody caught in the smuggling net howsoever senior or politically well-connected he may be. Lashing out at the Punjab Congress Grewal said the party was facing the wrath of the people and was totally frustrated. The hollow leaders of the dying party are bent upon indulging in propaganda against the SAD-BJP government over empty coffers. Grewal asked the Congress to give details of the development projects they brought, if any, for Punjab during its five-year tenure 2002-07. Replying to a query on the Ludhiana Metro rail project Grewal said the Rs.10,000-crore project was being financed by the union government as well as international companies. He said it would take at least five years to complete the project. Referring to the Budha Nullah at Ludhiana National Secretary BJP said the state government had formulated a Rs. 250-crore plan for its beautification and clean-up this project very soon.
