There’s unease between the SAD and BJP in Haryana after Akali Dal accused BJP of backtracking on its commitment to contest Haryana Assembly polls together. Later, it announced an alliance with INLD on three seats.
Referring to an order by Ministry of Rural Development to probe alleged irregularities in utilisation of MGNREGA funds, Kiki said that the document clearly says that the inquiry had been ordered after a letter was received from Badal.
With stakes high in the parliamentary polls, where he has reportedly promised the AICC president Rahul Gandhi of winning all 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab, Amarimder is back to using his old political lingo. Amarinder said Sukhbir (read Shiromani Akali Dal) will lose and the Congress will win all 13 seats in the Lok Sabha election.
Calling the protesters ‘Khalistani Congressmen’, SAD chief Sukhbir Badal claimed that they had been brought to Badal with police escort. He questioned how over 100 protesters, armed with wooden sticks and carrying kirpans, were allowed to reach the spot.
“India went into Pakistan’s air space and attacked their terrorist camps. It happened because of the brave PM you chose and you need to give him another chance. Hence you need to choose your own people by voting for SAD-BJP.”
