Slamming the Congress-led UPA government for extending industrial tax concessions to Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said the Congress had backstabbed the state by keeping it out of the ambit of the package despite repeated pleas of the state government.

In a statement issued here, the CM said Punjab, being a land-locked state along an active and hostile international border, had a much better claim on the tax concessions being given to its neighbouring states.

Badal asked Punjab Congress chief Partap Singh Bajwa "to conserve some of his lung power to speak against injustice to his state by his own party." Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal also assailed the UPA government for denying the industrial package to the state.
