Amritsar: BJP national president Amit Shah on Monday asked the electorate to vote for the SAD-BJP combine in Punjab for the third time, stating that the alliance’s victory was necessary for the security of the country. “The election in Punjab is an election for the security of the nation. Being a border-lying state, it is the responsibility of the electorate to choose a government which can ensure secure borders, communal harmony and peace. Punjab is the heart of India. If it is secure, the nation is secure,” he said.
Shah was addressing an election rally here in support of BJP candidates for the Punjab Assembly elections. Launching an offensive against Congress and AAP, he said Captain Amarinder Singh and Arvind Kejriwal were ‘daydreaming’ of becoming the Chief Minister of Punjab. He said PPCC chief Amarinder Singh is referred to as ‘absent MP’ as he never attended the Parliament nor visited Amritsar after being chosen as the MP from here.
“Will you ever vote for a person who is an ‘absent MP’? One who has been missing since becoming an MP? Well, even if he manages to become the CM, where will you go to find him,” he said. Similarly, he said, Kejriwal was dreaming of becoming the CM of every state he visits. “Some people are trying to do their best to defame Punjab. They are fooling people in order to seize power in Punjab. But I must say that the people know it all. The electorate of Delhi which voted for you (Kejriwal) is now looking for you with binoculars,” the BJP chief said. “I ask the people of Punjab to call up your relatives in Delhi and get a reality check,” he said.
