Chandigarh: In the backdrop of opposition Congress' allegations of police excesses against its workers, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday assured that there was no political victimisation in the state.



Making a passionate appeal in the assembly, Badal said, "I assure the House that there is no political vendetta in the state...I will not allow injustice to anyone...there is no political victimisation of Congressmen...in fact I urge the opposition to cooperate with the government".



Pointing out that he had received a list of total 39 cases of alleged political vendetta from leader of opposition Sunil Kumar Jakhar, the chief minister said that after a thorough probe at senior level it was found that only three cases were false and these have been cancelled.



Rest of the cases were related to issues where there is no role of any party, he said.



He, however, said that these cases related to personal fights among families, land disputes, and other trivial issues and had no connection whatsoever with any political party.



"I am burdened on the issue (accusation of political vendetta)...I want to satisfy the Congress...infact it was during the Congress regime false cases were registered against Akalis...our raj (regime) is Ram Rajya," Badal said amid thumping of benches by the treasury members.



"I have report of all the cases with me...my work is to get the probe done by senior officials if allegations of political vendetta are levelled against the government," he said.
