National BJP chief Amit Shah on Thursday termed Punjab Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal as the most ‘Pious’ Chief Minister the country is having at present.

“I am in politics since my childhood. I don’t have any hesitation in admitting that the country is not having any ‘pious and Pavitra’ Chief Minister than Badal saab,” said Shah after addressing state convention of booth level workers of Punjab.

Praising the Chief Minister, Shah said, “A person who committed his entire life for the state and went to jails for the state on various issues, for the Sikh community and for the peace of the state. No person alive on in this country could match his stature and contribution.”

Shah also exhorted the workers to vote for SAD-BJP in the state keeping in mind Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Punjab CM Badal as a face. “Your vote to the SAD-BJP would mean giving more strength to Modi, who is working overnight to flush out different filths lying in the country,” the BJP national chief said.

Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal was also present on the occasion.
