Can’t just blame one person: Dushyant

Chandigarh, August 10

Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala has once again objected to the findings of the Special Enquiry Team (SET) probing the liquor scam.

"In my last press meet, I had said the same thing and I will iterate it today as well. The state functions as per rules and regulations. One body recommends action and the government gives the nod to it as per law. It has never shirked from taking action. But to blame one person for it (the scam) is not correct. I have objection to it," he told the media on Monday.

CM Manohar Lal Khattar has dismissed Dushyant's objections to the SET report.

"As far as issuing passes (during the lockdown for the transportation of liquor) is concerned, the SET has made a recommendation. The government has initiated action."

On the SET passing strictures against Excise and Taxation Commissioner Shekhar Vidyarthi on not issuing instructions on the closure of liquor vends, he said when the authorities received the compliance report regarding the closure of vends, it was "objectionable".
