Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal questioned the timing of the allegations, while Majithia said the Punjab Congress had become party to a conspiracy to defame him through wild accusations made by a hardened drug criminal.

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee demanded Majithia's arrest in view of Bhola's charges, while former Congress MP Jagmeet Brar approached the Punjab and Haryana high court, seeking a CBI probe into the drug racket.
