Amid allegations of booth capturing by SAD workers in his contituency, rural development minister Surjit Singh Rakhra said the zila parishad and block samiti polls end on a free-and-fare note.

Congratulating the masses for enthusiastically taking part in voting, the minister said the high polling percentage had written another chapter in the history of the democracy of Punjab.

“Although the Congress leaders tried their best to misguide the people by giving statements of boycotting the polls, but the people have given a befitting reply to them by using their franchise,” he said, adding that SAD would clean sweep the polls.
