Patiala, Apr 1 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said the Punjab government would not appeal against the acquittal of PCC president Rajinder Kaur Bhattal in a graft case, in higher court.

Talking to mediapersons at village Tohra, 28 km from here, on the fourth death anniversary of late Gurcharan Singh Tohra, he said though the case against Bhattal was registered in previous SAD tenure and previous Congress government withdrew it, the present SAD-BJP government has not been promoting the path of altercation and confrontation.

He was commenting on being asked on the charges of former chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh that the state Congress chief Bhattal was ''hand in glove with him''.

The state government was ready to take the help of opponent political party for the betterment and development of the state, Mr Badal asserted.

Regarding Guru Gobind Singh's relics and painting of Guru Harkrishan Sahib to be auctioned at London on April 9 and 11 respectively, Mr Badal said the Punjab government has approached the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to intervene in the matter.

Regarding power scenario Mr Badal said Punjab would be transformed from a power deficit to power surplus state within next three years with additional generation capacity of 8000 to 10000 MW.
