Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal has said the jailing of INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala had triggered a wave in favour of the INLD-SAD alliance in Haryana and now the combine is poised to cross its 'Mission 60-plus' target and win 70 seats in Haryana.
Addressing a public meeting in favour of INLD candidate Buta Singh at Siwan village of the district on Saturday, the SAD president said a sympathy wave is blowing in favour of the INLD after the court's decision to cancel Chautala's bail.
Sukhbir said the SAD would always remain steadfast on its support to Chautala and the INLD. "Gala Kataya ja sakda hai INLD de naal naata nahi todaya ja sakda," he said.
The SAD president said Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and Om Prakash Chautala are men of words. "Once they make any commitment, you consider it done," he added.
Referring to Bhupinder Singh Hooda, the SAD president said the chief minister had spent `200 crore on a "false" propaganda called "Haryana No 1". He said the same amount could have been spent in villages to improve the condition of roads and drains. "However, Hooda Sahab was never interested in development as his one and only priority was to keep the Gandhi family happy. He even became a property dealer and a stooge of Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra," Sukhbir added.
