Lashing out at the Congress-led UPA government,Badal said that under it,the country was grappling with a large number of problems like unemployment,illiteracy and poverty.

Skyrocketing prices of essential commodities coupled with the “regressive policies” of the Centre was now adding to the woes of the people,he alleged.

Taking a dig at the state Congress leadership,Badal alleged that bereft of any issue against the SAD-BJP government,the Opposition party’s leaders had unleashed a malicious campaign regarding Punjab’s financial position.

He reiterated that the fiscal condition of the state was sound enough to meet the day-to-day expenses of the government.
