"So long as I breathe, this alliance is solid and there is no threat to it," he said here last night. He called the alliance between two parties not merely political but one which is based on principle.

He made these comments when told that tussle between some leaders of the alliance reflected poorly on it. When asked about alleged removal of GS Grewal as president of Punjab Medical Council by Punjab Medical Education and Research Minister Anil Joshi, Badal said he would look into the matter.

When reminded of the long tussle between Joshi and Grewal, Badal said he would look into it and added tussles don't solve matters.

Dr Grewal is brother of Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal, Adviser to the Chief Minister. On rescheduling of the Indo-Pak Foreign Secretary level talks in the wake of the Pathankot Airbase terrorist attack, Badal said that he saw nothing wrong in bilateral talks between the two countries provided the concerned side talked  with clear heart and honesty.
