Issru(Ludhiana)Slamming the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for their anti-Punjab stance, the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal urged the people of state not to blindly justify the sinister moves of these parties as both were inimical to interests of the state and were constantly working against interests of its people.
Addressing a gathering during a state-level function to mark the observance of martyrdom day of great revolutionary Shaheed Karnail Singh Issru, who laid down his life during the liberation of Goa from Portuguese regime, here on Monday at his native village, the Chief Minister said that Congress and AAP were two sides of a coin that were suffering from same anti-Punjab syndrome. He said that Punjabis must remain vigilant of the nefarious designs of both these parties to ruin the state. Badal said that both these parties have proven track record of anti-Punjab and anti-Sikhism.
Taking on the Congress, the Chief Minister bemoaned that the Congress governments at the Centre had deliberately denied the state some Punjabi-speaking areas, its capital Chandigarh and even its legitimate share in river waters. “How can any true Punjabi forget and forgive Operation Bluestar and the killing of innocents in 1984 anti-Sikh carnage?” he questioned.
The Chief Minister said that Congress party was the perpetrator of a deep rooted conspiracy to deprive the state of its waters by constructing the Satluj Yamuna Link (SYL) canal.
Making a scathing attack on AAP, the Chief Minister said that in the garb of Aam Aadmi this party was infact a band of fugitives and opportunists who were vying to attain political power at every cost.Earlier, the Chief Minister paid floral tributes to Shaheed Karnail Singh Issru in the village.
