Stepping up the war of words, BJP national executive member and Punjab unit spokesperson Manoranjan Kalia on Wednesday posed three questions to former Congress chief minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal.

Reacting to Bhattal's corruption allegations against him, Kalia asked her to clarify why then chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh had initiated an inquiry against her for withdrawing Rs 30 lakh during her tenure as the chief minister in 1996.

"Why were you not projected as the chief ministerial candidate in the 2002 polls despite serving as the CM in 1996? Why were you removed from the post of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader after the 2012 assembly elections?" he further asked Bhattal.
