SAD chief Sukhbir Badal today flayed the government for appointing Balwinder Singh Kotlabama, brother of Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) leader Avtar Singh Pannu, as chairman of Punjab Genco.

After addressing meetings in favour of party candidate Surinder Singh Bhullewal Rathan, he said, “A relative of the head of a banned organisation that indulges in anti-India activities is being promoted by the Congress government. It is said all appointments are being cleared by the Congress high command. Rahul Gandhi should tell Punjabis why he has rewarded Kotlabama.” He said the CM was trying to befool Punjabis by announcing a reduction in sand prices to Rs 5.50 per cubic feet. — OC
