Welcome Anna crusade: Badal tells Cong

MEHNA (MOGA): Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal has asked Congress leadership to welcome the crusade against corruption by social activist Anna Hazare, rather than oppose it.

Addressing a sangat darshan here on Wednesday, Badal said Congress is adopting double standards on Anna as PPCC president Amarinder Singh was welcoming the Anna movement, but the central leadership of the party was busy criticizing him.

Reiterating the stand of SAD-BJP alliance against corruption, Badal said Punjab government would welcome all such yatras in the state, including that of Anna Hazare and former deputy prime minister L K Advani, which aims at removing corruption for the welfare of common man.

On the ongoing agitation by farmland owners in Gobindpura, Badal said, asThe state government has not done any forcible acquisition of land for the Gobindpura power plant. Land has been acquired with the consent of farmers.a? He asserted that thermal plant was the need of the state and the issue has been unnecessarily politicized by some organizations.
