Deputy chief minister (CM) Sukhbir Singh Badal held a sangat darshan at Gidderbaha in Muktsar district on Wednesday.
“If the polls are held today then main opposition Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will face a disastrous defeat,” said Badal.
“The wave is in favour of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and youth will play a significant role in the victory of SAD-BJP in the 2017 assembly polls,” Sukhbir claimed.
“The opposition parties should be more worried about announcing candidates, as SAD is well prepared about whom to give tickets in 117 assembly constituencies,” said Sukhbir over announcement of candidates.
“The AAP is overpowered by greed of money and it does not care for the welfare of Punjab,” he said attacking AAP.
Taking pot-shots at Captain Amarinder Singh, he said that during his tenure as chief minister, Captain did nothing for development of the state except patchwork on the roads.
Over his estranged cousin and congress leader, Manpreet Badal, Sukhbir said he proved his disloyalty towards Badal family.
He couldn’t be trusted to work for the welfare of constituency, he added.
It may be mentioned that Gidderbaha assembly constituency was stronghold of Manpreet Badal, who remained the representative from the said area.
Meanwhile, the deputy CM announced setting up of a 66 KV grid at a cost of `4 crore, besides widening of Gidderbaha-Doda road at the cost of `12 crore.
He distributed development oriented funds to 26 panchayats and 11 urban wards of the Gidderbaha constituency.
