Claiming that a wave in favour of Narendra Modi is sweeping the country, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today said new entrant Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had no existence in Punjab.
"The AAP is nowhere in Punjab. There is no wave in favour of it," he said.
On the other hand, a wave in favour BJP's prime ministerial candidate Modi is sweeping the country, the Punjab Deputy Chief Minister said.
The AAP is contesting all the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab making the fight multi-cornered in all constituencies.
Exuding confidence about the SAD-BJP combine winning all the 13 seats in Punjab, Sukhbir said the election in the state was being fought on the issue of development.
"A government headed by Modi at the Centre will further accelerate the pace of development in Punjab," he said alleging the Congress had discriminated against the state in the past ten years.
"Modi stands for development," he said seeking votes for the SAD-BJP nominees.
He accused the Punjab Congress of creating roadblocks in the path of development in the state.
"Punjab is set to move into the next trajectory of development thanks to the leadership of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Narendra Modi," he said.
