Former Punjab chief minister and Shiromani Akali Dal supremo Parkash Singh Badal has said that he was “saddened” by the governor’s address in the Vidhan Sabha on Tuesday.

Calling the address “directionless, visionless and retrograde step”, he said it contained no road map for growth, development and prosperity of the state.

“The address sounds more like a cry baby’s list of grievances than a sound policy and vision statement of grown-up and mature administrators. It is a fault-finder, not a path-finder.

It shows that at least up to now, the government proposes to just push blame for their failures to their predecessors,” said Badal in a statement here.

SAD president and leader of the Akali Legislature Party Sukhbir SIngh Badal described the address as “textbook of political lies” while former finance minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa said it showed the Congress was still in “election mode” when Akali-bashing was the order of the day.
