Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said on Saturday he will be contesting the assembly elections from whichever seat the party allocates to him.
“In a democratic setup, party is supreme and I had always obeyed the decision of the party,” said Badal talking to media persons after holding sangat darshan in Malerkotala area.
Attacking Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, he said by announcing that they would review the decisions taken by the state government like regularisation of employees and others, they have proved that if voted to power they would withdraw the subsidies and concessions like Atta-Dal and Shagun schemes and others being given to the people.
Interacting with the media persons on the sidelines of the programme, he flayed the vandalising of a gurdwara Canada and said the incident has hurt the sentiments of every human being and Sikhs in particular. He said the central government must ensure the safety and security of the law abiding members of the Punjabi diaspora abroad.
The chief minister was accompanied by cabinet minister, Parminder Singh Dhindsa, MLA Iqbal Singh Jhunda, former minister, Nusrat Ikram Khan but local party candidate Mohammed Owais did not attend the function due to health reasons.
