Former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday accused chief minister Parkash Singh Badal of passing the blame of his flood-relief failure to the Centre.

In a statement issued here, Amarinder said the union government had nothing to do with rescue and relief, and it was the state's call. "The standard practice is that the state government does a special "girdawari" (revenue survey) of the damage and then sanctions relief to farmers," he said.
