Punjab revenue and public relations minister Bikram Majithia on Tuesday said he was open to any impartial probe and even ready to be hanged if he had done any wrong but would not be deterred from his duties by the blackmailing tactics of the Punjab Congress.


Explaining the background behind the allegations levelled by the Punjab Congress, the revenue minister said he was paying a price for exposing the land scams committed by senior Congress leaders, including state Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa.

Majithia said, "My conscience is clear; I have done no wrong. My only fault is that I have consistently taken the Punjab Congress head-on. It is because of this that I am constantly targeted by the state Congress."

Speaking about the role of the Punjab Congress leaders, the Akali leader said the former seemed to be siding with criminals and drug smugglers against the police. "This amounts to attempt to sabotage the state government's war against drugs," he added.
