The vigilance raids were conducted on a day when Ghubaya’s son Devinder Ghubaya and wife Krishna Rani were reportedly set to join Congress in the presence of its state unit chief Captain Amarinder Singh in New Delhi.
On Tuesday, vigilance sources had said they had picked up for scrutiny records of SC/ST scholarship cases for the last three years to look for discrepancies, if any.

However, on Wednesday, Makhan Singh, DSP Vigilance (Ferozepur range) told The Indian Express, “The raid was based on secret information. We are still investigating the details. We cannot disclose what all records we have seized. We are yet to reach any conclusion.” Sher Singh Ghubaya, who had yesterday accusing a faction of SAD for the raids, said, “They may have gone in other colleges as well. One can always check records. We have no discrepancy at all. So why should we worry.”

He also rubbished the reports that his son and wife were set to join Congress. “These were all rumours to defame me and my family. Why should I leave my party which made me MLA and MP? I am seeking ticket for my son from any constituency of Fazilka or Ferozepur and I am hopeful the party will give ticket to him. Every one has the right to seek a ticket.”

However, the Ferozepur MP has remained absent from functions in his constituency attended by deputy CM or CM. Asked about it, he said, “I have no differences with anyone. I am currently busy in Parliament session and other engagements due to which at times, I could have missed a few functions. However, I will be in my constituency after Parliament session is over on December 16.”
