Punjab Congress senior vice-president Lal Singh on Monday said if the party comes to power in Punjab it will eradicate the menace of drugs, unemployment and corruption in the first six months of it forming government.
“The Congress party will finish these problems in the first six months of coming to power in 2017,” he claimed after flagging off the second phase of ‘Jawani Sambhal Yatra’ here in poll-bound Punjab.
The ‘yatra’ will be covering 22 constituencies and will end on November 11 in Amritsar, Lal informed.
“The youth of Punjab have suffered the most in the last 10 years. Drugs have entered every house and are easily
available because of the police-politico nexus being run under the SAD-BJP government,” he alleged.
“The wealth of the first family of Punjab has multiplied while the state has deteriorated in every sector. Corruption has engulfed every sphere of life,” Lal said.
Meanwhile, Indian Youth Congress president Raja Amrinder Warring said this time the youth will bring revolution in
Punjab and strengthen the Congress party by forming government in 2017.
“The youth will play a major role in the ousting of this corrupt and visionless government of SAD-BJP which has ruined the state in last 10 years,” he said.
Punjab Congress legislature party chief Charanjit Singh Channi expressed shock over the ‘insult’ heaped upon family members of freedom fighters during the inauguration of an ‘incomplete’ Jang-e-Azadi memorial at Jalandhar on Sunday.
