Ludhiana: Denying any anti-incumbency factor against SAD-BJP government, Cabinet minister and senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia has claimed the alliance would register a hat-trick in next Punjab Assembly elections due to various development projects and welfare schemes started by the state government.
Majithia said that with its development projects and welfare schemes, the state government had pushed back any anti-incumbency factor in the state. “Though anti-incumbency was a big issue after the nine years of our government, but the development projects and welfare schemes will help the SAD- BJP to form the government for the third consecutive time,” said Majithia while talking to Daily Post during his Ludhiana visit on Friday.
He said at present the overall focus of government was on development and will continue to do so in future. “The sports stadium in Dakha constituency, solar power plant in Beas, Suvidha Kendras, Saanjh Kendra, flyovers and now recently launched mobile application delivering services to the people at door steps is the example of works done by government,” the minister added.
“AAP leaders challenged me to lodge an FIR and put them behind the bars but when I filed defamation case while adopting a legal procedure, the AAP leaders skipped court hearings,” said Majithia.
Majithia described Aam Aadmi Party a gang of power-hungry people, who were diverting the revenue collected from Delhi to other states for their vested political interests. He said funds amounting to crores of rupees were being spent on AAP’s advertising campaign in Punjab.
Majithia said all these funds had been siphoned off from the state exchequer and it was clearly a breach of trust. He said instead of misusing these public funds, the AAP should spend them for providing basic facilities of power and water as the residents of Delhi were worst sufferers on these fronts.
Replying to a question related to a protest by the Congress party in Ludhiana, Majithia said the Opposition party was holding such issueless protests just to protect its existence as it was rapidly losing ground in the state. He said the Congress party had already been rejected twice by the intelligent electorate of the state and a few months from now it would be rejected for the third time in a row.
To mark their presence among the people and their seniors, the Congress leaders were holding protests and demonstrations which lead to harassment for the public, he added.
