SAMANA/PATIALA, DECEMBER 21: Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal, President Shiromani Akali Dal and Deputy Chief Minister Punjab, today said that resurgent cadre of Shiromani Akali Dal and BJP would ensure that Congress party loses deposit on each and every seat of Patiala district and Captain Amarinder Singh is forced to confine himself to the four walls of Moti Mahal.
Addressing over a lakh of Akali Dal workers, in one of the biggest rally of Patiala district, the SAD President enthused by the overwhelming response, said that Patiala district is all set to create a history by ensuring that each and every candidate fighting on the ticket of Congress party was decimated from electoral scene. He said that people of Patiala are committed to reject ‘Maharaja’, who knows more about the streets of Lahore than of neighbouring townships Sanour and Ghanour. He said that nobody would vote for ‘Maharaja’, who remains away from people for four and half year after getting elected to power.
Mr. Badal said that Captain backstabbed farming community by denying them free power for four years, played joke with the youth of the state by banning recruitment in the very first month of his rule and denying development to the state by scuttling Rs 19,000 crore Bathinda Refinery for full five years. He said that a person, who remains busy in extracurricular activities and had no development mission of the state, has no right to seek votes from the people of Punjab.
Exhorting the people to exercise their franchise judiciously, Mr. Badal said that history rarely gives you an opportunity to decide the fate of the state. He said that 2012 Vidhan Sabha polls are going to be historic elections in the history of Punjab when people of Punjab would be creating history by reelecting a government for five more years, putting a stamp of approval on the development agenda of SAD-BJP government. He said that while casting your vote, one should distinguish between good and evil and should not hesitate to vanquish evil from the society for the long term development of the state.
Mr. Badal said that people of Punjab have already enjoyed the fruits of unprecedented development during last five years. Listing out the development initiatives, Mr. Badal said that besides making Punjab power surplus by investing more than Rs. 95,000 crores in power sector, the SAD-BJP has provided jobs to 1.17 lakh youth totally on merit in the most transparent online recruitment method. He said that youth of Punjab was committed not to bring back the Congress Party that has not done a single recruitment during their five year tenure, making the eligible youth overage, waiting for jobs. He said that besides 14,000 crore investment in road sector, linking all major cities with 4/6 lane roads, the 42 ROBs constructed during SAD-BJP regime were highest in the country. The SAD President said that it was the SAD-BJP that has empowered citizens by enacting Right to Service Act promising time bound delivery of citizen services.
       Mocking at Citizen Charter cleared by Union Cabinet yesterday, Mr. Badal said that Congress led UPA government has shamelessly aped Right to Service Act of Punjab Government without giving credit to us. He said that similarly Food Security Act was nothing but a carbon copy of Atta-Daal scheme envisioned by Chief Minister S. Parkash Singh Badal. Mr. Badal said that Food Security Act proposed by Union Government would not be beneficial to the people of Punjab till they include all Atta-Daal beneficiaries in the BPL list. Similarly without the provision of Daal (Pulses) the Food Security Act was a mockery with the poor families, who would be forced to buy Daal at Rs 100 per Kg. Mr. Badal said that the Punjab Government is yet to see the details of  Food Security Act and its likely fiscal impact on the state.
       Seeking vote for S. Parkash Singh Badal, the statesman Chief Minister with six decade political life, SAD President said that it becomes our bounden duty to honour such a spotless statesman with the repeat term, so that he could complete his development vision for Punjab.
Prominent amongst those present on the occasion included Mr. Surjit Singh Rakhra, in-charge Samana constituency, Mr. Surjit Singh Ablowal, Chairman Punseed, Mr. Randhir Singh Rakhra, Chairman Foodgrain, Mr. Harjit Singh Adaltiwala, Vice Chairman Commission for Backward Classes,  Tejinder Pal Singh Sandhu, former Chairman SSS Board, Mr. Kuldip Singh Nassupur and Mr. Nirmal Singh Hariao (Both SGPC members),Charanjit Singh Rakhra.
