Jalandhar: Punjab Congress vice-president and Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjeet Singh on Saturday questioned Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal’s downplaying of the drug addiction figures in the state by quoting the dope tests conducted on the aspirants for police constables jobs.
In a statement, Rana said that rather the figures were more worrying as those who tested positive for the drugs in the recruitment tests need to be added to the already existing figures.
