Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said here on Thursday that the decision regarding taking any action against state Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa over shamlat land deals would be taken after thorough scrutiny of government records. Revenue officials are inspecting the land deals and whosoever found guilty would be brought to book, he said while presiding over a sangat darshan programme here in Fatehgarh Churrian assembly constituency.
Accusing successive Congress governments at the Centre of ignoring the border belt of the state, Badal said the union government had betrayed the people of the border belt by neglecting their immense contribution to the country.
The CM said instead of giving any special package for the industry, agriculture or other sectors in border areas, the Congress-led union governments had framed policies which had led to the exodus of industry from the region.
Earlier, Badal inaugurated the building of the Ghiana Ke Banger police station at Bangar and laid the foundation stone of a primary health centre at Aliwal.
The function was organised by former assembly speaker Nirmal Singh Kahlon, while his son, Ravi Karan Kahlon, a former chairman of the Punjab Tubewell Corporation, handled the stage and also decided which panchayat members and sarpanches would meet the CM.
Special principal secretary Gurkirat Kirpal Singh and Gurdaspur deputy commissioner Dr Abhinav Trikha were also present on the occasion.
