Sukhbir Badal challenges Congress Govt, says vendetta politics will prove to be counterproductive for Cong party

Sultanpur Lodhi, December 22, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today said the more the Congress government tried to suppress the party by employing vendetta politics, the more popular it would become even as he asserted that the people had seen through the Congress game and would never forgive it for wasting five years politicizing the sensitive issue of sacrilege.

Addressing a rally in support of party candidate Capt Harminder Singh here, the SAD President said the SAD was not only fighting against the Congress party in Punjab but also the central government and the AAP government of Delhi. “Attempts are being made to weaken the party as well as Sikh institutions.

This conspiracy however won’t succeed. The people know that the Congress party is raking up the issue of sacrilege as well as registering a false case against Mr Bikram Majithia to divert attention from its failures. They also know about the struggle the farmers had to wage against the centre to get the three black laws repealed. They also know about the double game being played by AAP which is essentially anti-Punjab and anti-Punjabi”.

Speaking about the false case registered against Mr Bikram Majithia, the SAD president said the Congress government changed two DGPs and three Bureau of Investigation (BOI) Directors to implement its vendetta against the SAD. He said eventually it was a DGP who was not even eligible for empanelment as a regular DGP who was given charge of the office as a quid-pro-quo to register the false case.

He however made it very clear the party would expose this false case both in the courts as well as publically. “We will take this corrupt and vengeful government to task. All those who are working outside the ambit of the constitution will have to answer for their omissions and commissions as per law”.

He also announced that the SAD was steadfast in its commitment to maintaining peace and communal harmony and that even though conspiracies were afoot to destroy communal brotherhood in the State, the SAD would not allow this to happen.

He said both the AAP and Congress were seeing the writing on the wall and had become desperate. “They realize that they both have come down to such a position that they will not be able to get five and ten seats respectively. That is why they are now both trying to defame the SAD to uplift their political fortunes”.

Speaking about the constituency, Mr Sukhbir Badal said it was condemnable that no development work had been undertaken in the last five years of Congress rule. “We are committed to taking steps including construction of a ‘bundh’ to ensure there is no crop damage due to flooding. We will bring in quality education and healthcare to the area including establishment of mega schools which will provide an integrated study model”. He also announced that the corrupt Congress legislator of the area would also be taken to task.

Mr Badal also spoke on how the SAD-BSP alliance government had promised to provide 33 per cent reservation to all students of government schools in colleges and universities. “We will also ensure free education to such students”, he said adding students would also be eligible for an Rs Ten lakh interest free student loan.

Speaking about how the party understood the problems of farmers, the SAD president said the next alliance government would give a crop insurance cover of Rs 50,000 per acre to farmers. He said similarly all farmers who did not have a tube well connection would be given one.

The SAD President also paid homage to the elder Sahibzadas of Guru Gobind Singh ji on their martyrdom day and recalled the supreme sacrifice made by them to uphold Sikhism. Students Organization of India (SOI) workers led an impressive road show from Talwandi Chaudhrian to Sultanpur Lodhi rally pandal on the occasion. Later, Mr Badal paid obeisance at the historic Gurdwara Sri Ber Sahib and also visited noted environmentalist Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal.
