TALWARA DECEMBER 21: Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today asked the people to exercise their franchise in the coming assembly polls only in the favour of that political party, which had ensured overall development and welfare of all sections of the society after taking a conscientious decision besides giving due weightage to the achievements and people-oriented policies initiated by the SAD-BJP government during its present regime in comparison with the previous term of Congress.
Addressing a gathering after inaugurating the new administrative and science block of the Mahant Ram Parkash Dass Government College here, Mr. Badal said that our government had made spectacular developments in the field of the education be it at the level of school, college, university besides technical education.  He said that during the present regime of SAD-BJP alliance 17 new degree colleges besides 6 universities have been established to revolutionize the present education system in the state.  He announced that three more universities would be soon opened to further provide better avenues of higher education to our youth enabling them to compete at the global level.
Slamming the Congress for rampant corruption and faulty economic policies, Mr. Badal lamented that India was amongst the richest countries of the world but due to the lack of stable economic policies and social maladies like mass poverty, unemployment, illiteracy and starvation were the order of the day.  Mr. Badal  categorically said that the Congress led UPA government was exploiting the poorest of the poor under the guise of its pro-poor agenda and hollow slogans like
‘Congress Ka Hath Aam Adami Ke Sath’ to enrich its vote bank.  Mr. Badal said that Congress had no morel right to rule the nation as it had miserably failed to control the inflation.  He said that Congress was hand in globs with the multi-national companies to ensure maximization of their profits at the cost of the poor.
Recalling the role of Punjab in the national security and the food production, Mr. Badal said that it had not been properly rewarded by the Centre due to its myopic outlook.  He pointed out that the apathetic attitude of the Centre was amply clear from its deliberate approach by not allotting any mega public sector project in the state which could ensure employment to our youth besides strengthening the state’s economic and financial position. Blaming the Centre for neck deep in corruption and for its dubious role in multi-crore scams like 2G scam, Adarsh Housing and Common Wealth Games, Mr. Badal said that the Congress led UPA government
deserved its entry in the gunnies book of World Record as it had surpassed all records of corruption in the world. Highlighting the pro-people initiatives of the SAD-BJP alliance, Mr. Badal said that the distribution of cycles to the girl students under Mai Bhago Vidya Scheme, Shagun scheme, atta-dal, free 5-marla plots to
homeless SC/BC families and scholarship to the SC students and minorities reflected its commitment to uplift the lower strata of the society.  He promised the people, if SAD-BJP alliance is voted back to power then it would accomplish its unfinished agenda which would certainly put our state on the high growth trajectory.
Earlier, the MLA Dasuya and Chief Parliamentary Secretary Mr. Amarjit Singh Shahi welcomed the Chie Minister and highlighted the local issues of the area.
Later talking to the media persons, the Chief Minister said that Manpreet Badal was an opportunist which had been deftly proved by his co-founders Mr. Kushaldeep Singh Dhillon and Mr. Jagbir Singh Brar who have ditched the PPP and put the stack of PPP in Sanjha Morcha at peril.
Asked to comment on the seat sharing arrangements in SAD and its alliance partner BJP, Mr. Badal said that the senior leadership of the both these parties would amicably settle this issue at an appropriate time. Earlier, the Chief Minister visited the residence of senior leader of SAD and former Chairman Warehousing Mr. Sampuran Singh Cheema to share his condolences and heart felt sympathies with the bereaved members of the family, who passed away on Monday last.
Prominent amongst others who were present on the occasion included former Minister Ch. Balbir Singh Miani, District President of SAD Hoshiarpur Mr. Surinder Singh Bhulewalrath, besides deputy commissioner Hoshiarpur Mr. Deepinder Singh and SSP Mr. Balkar Singh Sidhu.
