Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Thursday said the state Congress leadership should tender an apology to the people for their “proven connivance in continuous step-motherly treatment meted out by the Congress-led UPA Government during the last 10 years”.

“The UPA government was approaching for completion of their second consecutive term but during this time,Punjab was totally ignored on each front. The most unfortunate aspect was that Punjab Congress leadership never uttered a single word against the high handedness of Union government,” Majithia said,adding that state Congress leaders,including party chief Partap Singh Bajwa and his predecessor,always “betrayed the interests of the state to save their position”.
