Sangrur: Castigating Congress for inflicting atrocities on the State, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said it was Indira Gandhi who laid the foundation stone of SYL and captain Amarinder Singh welcomed her on the occasion to loot river waters of Punjab. He emphasized that it is the SAD, second oldest party of the nation, which always stood up and fought for the rights of Punjab.
Addressing a rally near Jhaneri village, Badal said Punjab government has unleashed an era of development. He said the electorate of Punjab would reject the Congress and AAP keeping in view the record achievements of SAD-BJP government and the coalition will form government for 3rd time.
Further cautioning people not to be misled by false propaganda of novice outfits like AAP, he said, “ MP representing this district is habitual of taking intoxicants and even his party MPs had complained to Lok Sabha speaker about the “foul smell” emitting from said MP.”
Terming SAD-BJP government as saviours of river waters of Punjab, he made it absolutely clear that state has not even a single drop to spare for other states. He divulged that the cabinet has already denotified SYL canal land and Punjab Vidhan Sabha has also unanimously passed resolution with directions to the government, administration and employees neither to cooperate nor to help any agency in the construction of the canal.
Touching the developmental plank, Badal said, “ SAD-BJP government has made the state power surplus, major roads are 4 and 6 laned, sewerage and water supply in all towns has led to foundation of emerging Punjab.”
Deputy CM also announced to upgrade Bhawanigarh sub-tehsil to Sub-division besides a college for girls and development grant amounting to Rs 5 crore for the constituency. He also announced Rs 40 lakh grant to village Jhaneri in lieu of donating land to Gaushala.
Earlier, Badal inaugurated a slew of projects such as a new bus stand at Sangrur, meritorious school at village Ghabdan besides inaugurating 4-laning project worth Rs 487 crore from end of Sangrur bye-pass to beginning of Patiala bye-pass at NH-07.
