Capt welcomes Manpreet call for opposition party meet

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Amarinder Singh on Saturday welcomed the proposal of Sanjha Morcha chairman Manpreet Singh Badal on calling a meeting of all opposition parties in the state on the alleged anti-people policies of the SAD-led government.

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Amarinder Singh on Saturday welcomed the proposal of Sanjha Morcha chairman Manpreet Singh Badal on calling a meeting of all opposition parties in the state on the alleged anti-people policies of the SAD-led government.

The PCC president said,after the Sanjha Morcha stages its dharna against the government on September 21,he will call all the opposition leaders and fix a date that will be convenient to everyone.

“The unity of the opposition was the need of the hour since the Akali-BJP government has betrayed and let down the people of Punjab and now it had come out with punitive taxation,” he said.

Meanwhile,the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) ridiculed Amarinder’s statement on the proposed meeting and said these “public postures cannot restore the lost dignity of both the leaders.”
