SAD-BJP failed in maintaining law and order, drug menace: Bajwa

Punjab Congress on Monday lashed out at the SAD-BJP government in the state accusing it of failing to maintain law and order and curb the growing problem of drug abuse.

"Law and order situation in Punjab has become worse and police have become tool in the hands of Akalis. No one in Punjab is safe on account of misrule of SAD-BJP government," Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa said while addressing a mass contact programme at Sunder Chak.

Bajwa also took on the state government for the growing drug problem in the state, alleging it had become "a silent spectator" on this issue.

"We will eradicate drugs menace within year of forming government in the state and will send the Akalis responsible for drug trafficking to jail," said Bajwa.

Taking a swipe at Badal family, Bajwa said family of chief minister Parkash Singh Badal had turned "rich" during their regime while state had virtually become "bankrupt" due to their "faulty" policies.

On the alliance between SAD and BJP, Bajwa said they would possibly part ways before 2017 Assembly polls but would join hands again after elections.

Criticising the Land Bill, former Lok Sabha MP alleged that Modi government wanted to extend benefits to corporates through this Bill rather than benefiting farming community.
