India's National Congress candidate from Amritsar Amarinder Singh Thursday asked BJP leader Narendra Modi whether he was coming to Punjab to give his stamp of approval to "criminalized politics" being promoted by the state's Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia. All 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab go to polls April 30. In an open letter to Modi, Amarinder alleged that Majithia, brother-in-law of Punjab Deputy Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal, was "the most notorious character across Amritsar who has been patronizing drug trafficking and criminals". Amarinder Singh said Majithia was recently named in a multi-crore-rupee international drug racket and is likely to face prosecution soon.
