CHANDIGARH, MARCH 20: BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu today filed an affidavit in Punjab and Haryana High Court challenging the reply filed by the Punjab government in a case pertaining to the release of excise duty arrears which the state government allegedly owed to the Amritsar Municipal Corporation.
The Punjab government had earlier submitted before the court that it has already released the entire amount of Rs 148 crore to all the local bodies in the state of Punjab. ...
... Sidhu, who was present in the court along with his counsel and former BJP MP Satya Pal Jain, also stated in his affidavit that he wrote two letters to mayor of the MC, Amritsar on March 4 asking him to clarify the actual position of payment of arrears by Punjab government to the MC, "but there was no response".
