Shahkot – Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday lashed out at the Akalis and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for spreading an alleged canard over the issue of Class XII History books and urged the people of Shahkot to vote for the Congress for the betterment of their area and the state.“The Akalis failed to do anything for Punjab or its people during their 10-year rule, while the AAP’s Sukhpal Singh Khaira was misleading people by spreading untruths instead of raising issues related to the welfare of the people,” said the Chief Minister, addressing a rally before accompanying the Congress candidate for Shahkot bye-election Hardev Singh Laddi for the filing of his nomination papers.Besides Captain Amarinder, others party stalwarts who accompanied Laddi to the SDM office were PPCC president Sunil Jakhar, AICC leaders Asha Kumari and Harish Choudhary, along with Rana Gurjit Singh, Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, and Santokh Singh. Speaking at the rally at Dana Mandi, the Chief Minister said that he won’t talk big like SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal or Khaira but could assure the people of Shahkot of implementing all their genuine demands.Captain Amarinder said every vote for Laddi would be a vote for the future of Punjab as the Congress was the only party that could bring the state’s progress back on track and that believed in implementing every single poll promise. He said he had known Laddi for a long time as a man with a clean heart and commitment of purpose. Captain Amarinder came down heavily on the Akalis for ruining the state during their regime, saying they had a history of damaging the interests of Punjab. PPCC president Sunil Jakhar said the byepoll was an opportunity for the people of Shahkot to make amends for their earlier mistake of voting.
