Nabha: With just three days to the counting of the votes for the state assembly elections, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) supremo and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday predicted a landslide victory for the ruling alliance and claimed that the Congress and AAP will get only 11 seats each.
He was here to attend some function in Kalyan village so he took aerial route and his helicopter landed at Punjab Public School (PPS) ground, where the helipad was made. From PPS, he went by road to Kalyan village and after attending the function stopped at the premises of Preet Tractors and Combines.
It may be mentioned here that the Managing Director (MD) of Preet Tractors and Combines Hari Singh is also a senior leader of SAD and he also contested the assembly election from Dhuri in Sangrur district on the party ticket. Just a month ago, the mother of Hari Singh had passed away and the main motive of Sukhbir’s stopover at Preet Tractors and Combines was to join Hari Singh’s family and condole the death of his mother.
Sukhbir claimed a landslide victory for the ruling alliance saying that during one decade, the ruling alliance had done large-scale developmental works for the benefit of the people and the silent vote cast by the people finally favoured the alliance.
He said that the alliance believed in delivering things and were not involved in making false claims. He said that the alliance also did a lot for the younger generation by providing them with employment in various government departments and the youngsters vote also favoured the alliance.
The SAD chief also claimed that as far as development of infrastructure was concerned, the alliance had worked so hard to set the things in right perspective and it put up best efforts in making Mohali International airport operational after Amritsar airport. He also claimed that due to the untiring efforts of the alliance government, the state has become power surplus and the state ushered in a new era of the development and the all-out progress.
He claimed that the people have voted for the alliance and other competitors like Congress and AAP had to rest with 11 seats each as the intelligence inputs had made such remarks.
