Deputy chief minister Sukhbir has claimed that the SAD-BJP coalition would rule for 25 years in Punjab and advised the state Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa to stop dreaming about his party ever returning to power in the state.


Sukhbir was here to hold sangat darshans in a number of villages of Mansa district, during which he doled out developmental grants totaling Rs. 10 crore. Meanwhile, a former chairman of Mansa Market Committee, Gurdev Singh Lalli Dhillon, joined the SAD at Kharak Singh Wala village.

Earlier, addressing the gathering, Sukhbir called upon the people to come forward for the formation of NDA government under the leadership of Narender Modi at the Centre.

He announced that the state government would soon release more than 70,000 tubewell connections to the farmers who had applied before 2007. He said that all the distributaries would be strengthened in the next two years to revamp the irrigation system in the Malwa region.

The impact of Manpreet Singh Badal’s namesake in Bathinda with his Badal tag and election symbol ‘kite’, which was the symbol of PPP during the last assembly elections, would be clear only after the poll results would be out, but past experience shows that namesakes have not fared well in elections. Whether they contested purposefully or spontaneously is a different matter.
