Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) member Raman Bahl on Saturday demanded imposition of President's rule in Punjab.
Bahl said after trading corruption charges against each other in Amritsar on Thursday, the SAD-BJP ruling alliance had "no moral right to stay in power".
Bahl said the Akalis had alleged BJP minister Anil Joshi of amassing huge wealth by misusing his office, while the BJP leaders accused the top SAD leadership of acting as sand, land, liquor and drug mafia.
Since the formation of the SAD-BJP alliance, he said, the Congress had been telling the people of the state that "it was an unholy alliance, forged to grab power in Punjab".
The Cong leader said the ruling partners did not want to serve the state and its people and their motive was to "squeeze out all wealth for selfish interests".
He appealed to the people of Punjab to ask for the "details of the wealth being amassed by leaders of both the ruling alliance"in the last seven years.
