Addressing a press conference in the press gallery of Vidhan Sabha, Badal took a jibe at Congress government and said “the (Governor’s) address seemed to have got two things wrong – the dates and the name of the chief minister.”
Led by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal, the MLAs protested that the government had failed to honour its commitment on farm loan waivers and shouted slogans against the government in the well of the house during Zero Hour.
SAD president and former deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal shares his assessment of one year of the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government in Punjab.
Asked whether solving of targeted killing cases including murder of right-wing and Hindu leaders and crackdown on gangsters was not an achievement of the Congress regime, Badal said there was no question of giving any credit to anyone. “It is the duty of police,” he said.
Only 500 out of 2100 Sewa Kendras will function. The rest would be put to use by the government as per the suggestions by Chief Secretary Karan Avtar Singh. These Sewa Kendras provide 67 services under one roof.
Sukhbir Singh Badal was speaking in Gurharsahai constituency of Ferozepur at a pol khol rally organised by the party.
Badal also told Trudeau that SGPC would like to celebrate the upcoming 550th birth anniversary of first master of Sikhs Guru Nanak Dev jointly with Canadian government.
Meanwhile, Darshan Singh Brar said it is the Congress government, which is saving the youths of Punjab by eradicating drugs and eliminating gangsters who were prospering under SAD. “This itself shows which party has real gangsters,” said the MLA.
Presiding over a meeting of party functionaries, former MLAs and others, Badal said besides contesting the Zila Parishad and Panchayat Samiti elections on the party symbol, the party would also contest the Ludhiana municipal corporation polls.
The delegation also called for strict action against officials who had coerced members of the Sikh community in Hunga district of Khyber Pakthtunkhwa to convert to Islam.
“Akalis are not afraid of FIRs. Akali Dal is a party whose leaders had faced jail term without even registration of cases. You are trying to scare us with FIRs.”
The SAD president held one-to-one meetings with the SGPC members who owe the allegiance to SAD.
Meanwhile, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal started his campaign for the Gurdaspur by-election Monday by claiming that Langah was no longer associated with the party.
The former deputy chief minister said the fact is that these acts of sacrilege were a part of a deep-rooted conspiracy against the then Akali-BJP government and the Congress was its prime suspect.
