Balachaur: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday demanded a probe into funding of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) by the Union government.
Interacting with media persons on the sidelines of the second day of his Sangat Darshan programme, Badal slammed AAP for its alleged links and hobnobbing with radical elements. “The sources of funding of AAP needs to be probed by the Central government,” he said, adding that AAP, a ‘rabidly anti-Punjab party’ will meet the same fate as was meted out to PPP in the last assembly poll.
He further castigated AAP saying it was a conglomerate of outsiders who neither had any understanding about the culture, traditions and atmosphere of Punjab nor had it any sentimental connect with its roots.
Badal also slammed Congress and termed it as a party without any progress-centric agenda. “PPCC Chief Capt Amarinder Singh cannot list even a single development work which he carried out during his tenure as chief minister,” he said.
He added that the Kandi canal would be completed shortly at a total cost of Rs. 540.24 crore and would be beneficial for around 60,000 acres of land. He also announced that Rs 50 crore will be spent on ensuring cent per cent water supply for Balachaur region. He also disbursed grants worth Rs 22 crore.
Conceding the demand of youth Akali workers of Balachaur, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal announced establishing a volleyball academy in Balachaur. Volleyball is a game which is very popular in the Balachaur area and district president of the BC wing of YAD district unit Sethi Kular had raised this demand before the Deputy CM eralier. The Academy is likely to come up at a cost of Rs 25 lakh, said Kular.
