Shiromani Akali Dal Badal which has acquired an aggressive posture on the issue of Punjab Hooch Tragedy has now decided to take the issue to Delhi.
Senior party leader and former Cabinet Minister Dr Daljeet Singh Cheema, today said that Punjab Hooch Tragedy has exposed the nexus of Congress and Mafia and it is now more than clear that AICC chief Sonia Gandhi is sheltering Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder this on this issue.
