Claiming that the Congress was all set to be victorious in the 2017 assembly elections, former chief minister and senior Congress leader Rajinder Kaur Bhattal has said that the state government was living on ‘borrowed times’.
“The SAD has completed its days of ruling the state and would be out of power in 2017. The government is generating funds from revenue through drugs,” said Bhattal at a meeting with district party workers in Khanouri on Monday.
Taking a dig at Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP’s) performance in Delhi, Bhattal said party chief Arvind Kejriwal had managed to fool the residents of Delhi.
“The AAP has no real standing among people and people would soon forget that there was ever another party by this name. Delhi residents could be fooled by their promises, but the AAP cannot repeat the same in Punjab,” Bhattal said.
“Punjabis are smart and the Congress would form the next government. I and state party chief Captain Amarinder Singh would work for the state and party and for welfare of the public. I will contest from Lehragaga in Sangrur,” she added.
