Addressing a function at Arya Samaj Dharmshala here, the Information and Broadcasting minister said Punjab is lagging behind due to the "discriminating" approach of the Akali-BJP government.

"No fund is being provided to the area which is being represented by the Congress," he alleged.

The local MP asserted that discriminating policy is not going to succeed.

Despite the misuse of official machinery and pressures in the recent Panchayat polls, a number of Congressmen have been elected Panches and Sarpanches, he said.
