Won’t spare guilty
The corrupt will be taken to task whether from our party or the Opposition. Bhagwant Mann, CM
On the sidelines of the opening of a public sand mine at Mao Sahib in Phillaur, Mann said, “We will not favour anyone facing corruption charges. If we indulge in favouritism, there will be no difference between us and previous governments.”
