Patiala, August 4

Days after Patiala-based Congress leader and Punsup vice-chairman Krishan Chand Budhu publicly accused senior party leaders of corruption, the state government has relieved him from the position. The public statements had brought fissures in the Patiala Congress out in the open.

Budhu had levelled allegations of involvement of party leaders in the sale of liquor and drugs. He had met new PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu over the matter and claimed he had contacted senior party leaders over these issues earlier too, but was not given an ear.

In response, the District Congress Committee had held a press conference on Tuesday where some leaders levied counter-allegations against Budhu. “I have been punished for speaking the truth,” he said. — TNS
