Ferozepur: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday, said that an atmosphere of peace and communal harmony prevails in Punjab due to persistent efforts of SAD-BJP government. The state is writing new success stories with each passing day which makes it important to give SAD-BJP government a hat-trick chance so as to continue this unabated development journey. Sukhbir on Saturday was visiting his constituency Jalalabad for Sangat Darshan.
Interacting with media-persons at village Gumaniwala, Badal gave a clarion call to crushingly defeat those extremist elements in upcoming assembly elections who have gathered with sole intent of grabbing power in state. He also exhorted people to out rightly reject call given by United Akali Dal in its convention to fight elections on a common front because extremist forces are out to play havoc with the peaceful atmosphere. Castigating Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Deputy Chief Minister said that Arvind Kejriwal is suffering from confrontationist nature who has nothing at all to do with welfare and progress of Punjab.
Deputy Chief Minister further disclosed that Kejriwal has a hidden agenda of capturing power in Punjab and use state to keep pot of squabbles with Union Government burning in order to prop himself up on national political scene. DyCM also said that people should not repeat the mistake of voting for AAP as they did in Lok Sabha polls as they will take Punjab from development to anarchy. Badal revealed that these people are completely ignorant about culture of Punjab as well as sentiments and aspirations of its people.
Attacking Congress ranks, Badal said that Captain Amarinder Singh did nothing worthwhile during his 5 year tenure as Chief Minister from 2002-2007 and cannot list even a single measure of developmental nature. Badal said that only SAD represents Punjabis the world over in true form with the era of development and prosperity being ushered only when SAD-BJP government has assumed command of the state under the leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
On the occasion, DyCM distributed development oriented grants worth crores to dozen villages including village Tiwana Kalan, Gumaniwala, Chakk Panniwala, Bare Kalan, Chakk Lamochar. He also inaugurated a slew of new projects besides addressing grievances of masses at the spot.. He also disclosed that the state government is paying special attention to overall development of border regions.
