Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal on Thursday said that around 120 people, who died due to spurious liquor, have been actually murdered.

While addressing a protest dharna at Ghanaur in Patiala, Sukhbir Badal said "From past few months, I have been warning and even talking to officers that spurious liquor was being sold in Punjab but no action was taken."

He added that the "officials of the Excise department told me that they are helpless as they will get transferred if they speak up."

"Captain Amarinder Singh is the most undignified Chief Minister ever. What's the work of the Chief Minister? To sit with poor people and farmers," he said, adding that it's been almost 4 years that Captain Amarinder Singh hasn't shown up in his own constituency. "Does he deserves to be called Chief Minister?" he questioned.
