Substantiating his argument, Manpreet said people of the state were fed up of the ruling government and the statements by BJP leaders in the media also proved that the alliance was not going to sustain for long.

“If the BJP continues its alliance with the SAD till the assembly elections in Punjab in 2017, it will be difficult for them to prove their innocence as the BJP will be equally responsible for the sins committed by the SAD and the government on a whole,” he added.

“I am not an astrologer but being a political worker, I believe that the BJP will definitely choose separate paths since public perception is not in favour of the ruling government,” the PPP chief said.

Meanwhile, proposing an alliance with the Congress and other parties before civic body elections across the state, Badal said it was a golden opportunity for all parties, including the Congress, AAP, PPP and Left parties, to join hands to teach the government a lesson.

“If all the parties stand united against the SAD-BJP alliance, the political scenario of the state will change as people are vying for change at the ground level,” he said.

Manpreet said he would personally initiate the process to make a joint front of all opposition parties once the dates of civic body elections are declared.
