Chandigarh, February 25, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said the Congress party had admitted that it had failed to even start implementing its election manifesto by announcing the formation of an Election Manifesto Implementation Committee.

Speaking in the Vidhan Sabha today, SAD legislator Harinderpal Singh Chandumajra said the formation of the Manifesto Implementation Committee by the Congress high command was a clear indication that it did not trust the Punjab cabinet to undertake this task and doubted its capability.

He said however the fact that Haryana Pradesh Congress President Kumari Selja had also been made a member of the Committee indicated that the Congress was not serious about implementing the promises made to the people. “How will the Congress government in Punjab safeguard the river waters of the State which was also a key commitment in its election manifesto if Kumari Selja is also in the same Committee?” he asked.

Mr Chandumajra also exposed the Congress government for failing the farmers. He said the Congress party did not deem it fit to even keep a discussion on farm suicides and was making a claim of giving partial relief to farmers even as it had imposed penalties of Rs 10,000 crore on them.

He said the Congress government’s mismanagement had resulted in downgrading of PADB banks to D category by NABARD and now they were not being refinanced.

The Akali legislator also demanded that a special session should be held to discuss the water crisis due to depletion of the water table. He said there was an urgent need to augment canal supply but the government had earlier kept a paltry Rs 100 crore budgetary allocation for the irrigation department.

He also spoke on need to stop sale of spurious milk stating that the consumption of milk in Punjab was more than production. Mr Chandumajra also highlighted how Punjabis had lost out on availing funds for the Atal Bhojan Yojna simply because chief minster Capt Amarinder Singh did not attend a key meeting in this regard.
