Sukhbir Singh Badal came down heavily on AAP, and said they were "bunch of outsiders who don't have any inkling about the culture and tradition of Punjab".
Slamming Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh for his regime’s “failure” and dismissing AAP as a “bunch of outsiders”, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today exhorted people of the state to vote the SAD-BJP combine to power for a third consecutive term.
Inaugurating and laying foundation stones of various development projects worth Rs 350 crore in Kotkapura, Jaito and Faridkot, the Deputy Chief Minister claimed the Akali Dal is the only party which genuinely represents Punjab whereas Congress and AAP were only “lusting” after power.
Sukhbir came down heavily on AAP, and said they were “bunch of outsiders who don’t have any inkling about the culture and tradition of Punjab”.
Terming AAP as Punjab’s “biggest enemy”, Badal alleged the party was trying to “disrupt communal harmony and brotherhood” in the state.
He claimed that AAP did not care for the sentiments of any religion and the dastardly act committed by them during the release of their youth manifesto in Amritsar, was drawing flak from around the world.
Targeting Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh, Badal claimed during the previous 9 years, Punjab has witnessed record progress whereas the former’s chief ministerial regime ended in a “big failure”.
He claimed Amarinder would not be able list even a single development oriented project of his regime whereas the SAD-BJP government has ensured fast-track development of the state, beside uplifting the living standard of its people through various welfare schemes.
He said Punjab has been transformed into a power surplus state during the previous 9 years and the state is providing 24 hour power supply which is in stark contrast to neighbouring states.
