Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Saturday said the “chintan shivir” of SAD-BJP alliance in Goa — beginning Sunday — will focus on formulating a strategy for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Interacting with mediapersons,Badal said during the shivir,the alliance partners will not only introspect about the working of the government but also join heads to strengthen the base of the alliance by overcoming their weaknesses.

“The meeting will also focus on carving out a detailed action plan for the coming general elections so as to rout the Congress out of the state and paving way for the formation of the NDA government at the Centre,” the chief minister said.

He added: “Above all,during the shivir,the leaders will deliberate upon the steps required to put the state on the high growth trajectory to fulfil the dream of ‘new Punjab’.”

Taking a strong exception to the “malicious propaganda” of the state Congress leadership regarding the law and order situation in the state,Badal equated it to “pot telling the kettle black”. “Before making such baseless statements,the Congress leaders,including Congress chief Partap Singh Bajwa,must peep into their conscience to see that “Punjab (at present) is much more peaceful then most of the Congress ruled states,” he added.

He claimed that the law and order situation was worst in the Congress-ruled states and “no one is safe even in the national capital where the Congress is at the helm of affairs”. “The sole aim of the Congress leaders behind issuing such irrational statements was to get the cheap publicity in the media,” he added.
