The Aam Aadmi Party has condemned the Capt Amarinder govt for offering facilities to former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal.

Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, MLA and AAP chief whip Sukhpal Singh Khaira said his party welcomed other decisions taken by the cabinet, but giving accommodation and other facilities at state exchequer’s cost to Badal was not fair.

“The Badal family owns assets worth many crores and owns many 7-star hotels. Offering senior Badal free accommodation and other facilities is not good for already empty coffers of the govt.”

Claiming that the move smelt of some covert understanding between the Badals and Captain Amarinder, he said the chief minister should have instead ordered a probe into the assets of the Badal family.
