Bathinda Member Parliament, Harsimrat Kaur Badal slammed the UPA-II headed by Congress Party for dragging the future of the nation into the dark by imposing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) multi brand retail system, without creating any consensus with the concerned sectors of the country.

Accusing the Congress led UPA government for ignoring the interests of common masses before initiating process for FDI; Harsimrat said that the time has come to get rid of this government. She said that UPA-II has left an indelible scar on the face of India, by committing various multi lakh crore scams and by bringing the inflation at record height. She said that it would be in favour of our national interest to eliminate this corrupt government from the national political arena.

Talking to media persons at village Jassi Pau Wali, the MP said that Center did not consult the other political parties, traders, wholesalers, retailers and common masses before imposing FDI. She said that Congress Party has imposed this anti-people decision on countrymen just to extend benefits to some MNCs. She said that every section of the country has been suffering and reeling under the unprecedented inflation due to such ill-managed strategies and decisions of UPA Government.

Taking a dig on Union Government, she said its discriminatory attitude towards Punjab could be guessed from the recently announced drought relief package to other states, in which Punjab had been cornered.

On being asked internal rift in the UPA, she said that the anti-people face of Congress Party has been exposed that's why its political allies were also opposing its decision.

Meanwhile, MP also inaugurated newly constructed classrooms in the senior secondary schools of Gulabgarh, Jassi Pau Wali, Naruana, Jai Singh Wala and Gehri Buttar respectively.
