The Opposition Congress in Punjab today held a protest against the SAD-BJP government move to auction the Municipal Corporation building in Bhawanigarh.
While addressing protesters, Sangrur MP Vijay Inder Singla lashed out at SAD-BJP government and also accused it of leading the state into a "financial mess". Singla also slammed the state government for introducing E-Trip system, saying that it would hurt the trade.
"The SAD-BJP government has betrayed the people of Punjab by not implementing even one of its promises made during the last elections," he said.
"The state is in a financial emergency as they have not paid their own fuel expense bills, salaries to state government employees or VAT refunds to industries," he alleged.
Ex-MLA Surinder Pal Sibia said the Corporation has postponed the auction of its building.
He threatened to launch protest if the state government again decided to auction the Municipal Corporation building.
