Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president and deputy chief minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday opened a frontal attack on the Patiala royal family by calling Amritsar MP Amarinder Singh a 'liar' and former MP Preneet Kaur a 'non-performer'.
He also announced that the SAD was getting support from the NDA government and claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would soon visit Punjab and announce big developmental projects.
He claimed that if a dope test was to be introduced for politicians, the SAD would win elections easily, as many Congress candidates would be declared ineligible.
Responding to queries about the Congress’ allegations that Patiala was neglected by the SAD-BJP government, Sukhbir hit back by saying that former MP from Patiala Preneet Kaur failed to get any grants for the city under the scheme for National Capital Region when she was a minister in the UPA government.
He added that Preneet could easily have got over ` 300 crore for the city’s development, under the scheme, had she tried.
