Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said the state government was alert and ready to foil any nefarious attempt aimed at disturbing the law and order in the state.
The state government was keeping a strict vigil to crush the ugly head of anti-national forces which were trying to derail the peace and prosperity in the state, Badal said, referring to media reports of possibility of Pathankot-like terror attack during assembly polls next year.
Speaking on the sidelines of a “sangat darshan” at the Malout assembly segment on Sunday, the CM said: “We are in touch with the Union government on this crucial issue concerned with the security of country.”
“The possibility of any attack towards the sovereignty and security of the country would be given a befitting reply,” he said.
Replying to a query, Badal said the Shiromani Akali Dal would release its election manifesto at an appropriate time. He said all the genuine demands of people would be incorporated in the manifesto.
On norms laid down for compensation to the kin of farmers who committed suicide, he said the government was committed to grant Rs 3 lakh as financial aid to the hapless families.
Earlier, hearing grievances of people, Badal said the Punjab government would soon come up with a comprehensive master plan to address the problem of water supply and sewerage in the cities.
The CM also laid the foundation stone of multi-purpose stadium to be constructed at a cost of Rs 6.36 crore and 66kv sub-station for Rs 4 crore.
He was accompanied by Malout MLA Harpreet Singh and MP Sher Singh Gubaya.
