Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Charanjit Singh Channi said in Pathankot on Friday that many more Hoshiarpur-type scams could come to light if an independent agency starts probing all the deals in the state.
Channi, accompanied by vice-chairman of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes Raj Kumar Verka, Hans Raj Hans and Youth Congress chief Raja Amrinder Singh Warring, was addressing party workers at Sujanpur town near Pathankot.
He said during the SAD-BJP regime, the rank and file of the ruling parties only aimed at looting the state. One could see all major businesses from cable TV to transport are in their hands, which they have monopolized, he added. The youths are dying and many have adopted the crime path after turning as drug addicts during this regime, for which the people of the state would not forgive them.
Our aim would be to bring Punjabi youths back to their glory for which they were famous for, he said.
Over the infighting within the Congress, he said once tickets for elections were announced, there would not be any race for them and all would stand united. He said that the party might may declare candidates nearly four months ahead of the elections.
Verka said sufficient representation to youths and SC/ST candidates would be given in the elections. Women would also be taken care of in the same way, he added.
Raja Warring called on youths to join hands to oust the SAD-BJP government, which was at blame for the sad state of youths of Punjab.
