Hooda demands probe by CBI or House panel

Chandigarh, August 11

Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda has expressed dissatisfaction with the findings of the Special Enquiry Team (SET), which is probing the liquor scam and instead demanded an inquiry either by the CBI or a High Court judge or a House committee. "The state government is trying to put the blame on excise officials. The Opposition demands that real culprits should be exposed," he told the media here on Tuesday.

The former CM listed out several scams that had been exposed in recent years. "There was a scam in the registration of sale deeds, and the purchase of mustard and rice. After every 15 days, a new scam tumbles out of the closet." The Congress leader said the scams were pushing the state to the brink of bankruptcy.

On the protest by 1,983 physical training instructors demanding their reappointment, he said as the BJP-JJP government was dithering, the Congress would bring in a private member Bill to reinstate them. — TNS

He has lost focus: Vij

Replying to Bhupinder Singh Hooda's allegations, Health Minister Anil Vij said, "I heard what Hooda said on Tuesday. He was looking upset. He has been suffering from fever. He has lost his focus."
