Congress flays Akali-BJP regime

Chandigarh: The opposition Congress in Punjab flayed the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine on Wednesday saying it is raking up the river waters issue just to divert public attention from “mis-governance” and “rampant corruption”.

“The water controversy is being raised by the Akali-BJP government to divert the people's attention from basic issues. The ruling combine has miserably failed to fulfil the people's aspirations as all sections of society are in deep anguish over the malfunctioning of government,” former Punjab Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly Rajinder Kaur Bhattal told reporters here.

The all-party meeting called by Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here on Saturday had failed to reach a consensus after the Congress expressed its reluctance to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to discuss the river water disputes with the neighbouring states. - PTI
