Targeting the Akali-BJP government, he said: “In the past 10 years, the Parkash Singh Badal-led government had looted industrialist and many units have shifted their base to other states due to wrong polices of the government.”

“After listening to the problems faced by the industrialist, we had planned this manifesto and the blueprint is prepared by a team of experts and once the manifesto is implemented, we will see goods produced in Batala in every part of the country,” he said.
