Punjab: SAD slams Congress leader over 'wheat scam'
Chandigarh, Apr 21: Terming the issuance of Cash Credit Limit (CCL) by RBI as a strong vindication of the stand of government that not a single grain of wheat was missing from stocks, SAD on Thursday slammed former Congress leader Sunil Jakhar for raking up the issue after it had been resolved.
In a statement issued here, SAD general secretary, Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal said Congress was standing against farmers and trying everything to vitiate the atmosphere against clearance of CCL.
Grewal said if there been even iota of truth about the disappearance of wheat from stock, RBI would never have issued this CCL to the state.
Earlier the Reserve Bank issued authorisation of cash credit limit (CCL) of Rs 17,523 crore towards first installment for the procurement of 90 lakh tonnes of wheat this rabi season by the Punjab government.
