Punjab Deputy Chief Minister and Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal Saturday said the zila parishad and panchayat samiti elections will mark the total decimation of the Congress from the electoral scene of Punjab and asked state party chief Partap Singh Bajwa to get ready for first electoral drubbing after his coronation.
Sukhbir said that the Congress never wanted to contest any election in Punjab as it will expose their real base in the state. He said the Opposition party was only looking for alibis to create disturbance in the state.
The Deputy CM said,Right from day one when Bajwa witnessed vanishing base of his party during campaigning for zila parishad polls,he returned to the old game of the Congress party of demanding central forces,central rule and direct intervention of Union government in punjab.
What happened to the Congress party in the Vidhan Sabha polls,which were conducted by Election Commission of India under the direct supervision of central and paramilitary forces? Why could not Congress save its deposit in most of the seats in these polls, Sukhbir asked.
Calling upon the people to put a stamp of approval on the development agenda of SAD-BJP government,Sukhbir said,Let the people of Punjab become the agent of change in the Mahasangram that would decimate Congress party in coming Lok Sabha elections.
He said that the country was eagerly looking towards Punjab to free the country from the clutches of East India Company rule of Congress-led UPA as Punjabis had a distinction of playing a decisive role in the freedom struggle of the country.
