Union minister Oscar Fernandes on Wednesday said the SAD-BJP government in Punjab was "surviving" on only central grants.


Addressing a Punjab Youth Congress rally here on Wednesday, Fernandes called upon youth activists to mobilise their efforts to trounce the SAD-BJP combine in the coming Lok Sabha elections.

Terming the Centre's food security programme as historic, the Union minister said it would provide subsidized food to 67 per cent of country's population.
