Chhapar (Ludhiana), September 6, 2017: The Local Government Minister, Punjab, Mr. Navjot Singh Sidhu has said that the name of the Badal family would be inscribed in black words on the pages of history as it has indulged in the economic loot of Punjab and its people. Apart from this, the tenure of SAD-BJP regime would be remembered as the period of economic terrorism.

Addressing a massive gathering at historic Chhapar Mela here today, Mr. Sidhu said that the previous regime gave the slogan of ‘Raj Nahi Sewa’ but acted quite contrary to it. The Badal family used the exchequer of Punjab during the previous 10 years for its personal benefit to such an extent that left the state and its people are in financial dire straits. He also alleged that with a view to monopolize the every single business in Punjab, the Badal family looted Punjab to its heart’s content.Calling the Jabar Virodhi Lehar of SAD a political drama, Mr. Sidhu said that those who themselves indulged in cruelties and excesses cannot accuse the government elected by the people. He also said that the people of Punjab very well know that it was during the SAD-BJP rule that Bargari incident, murder of a dalit in Abohar, Moga bus incident and other incidents took place. Besides this, the drug trade patronized by the previous regime took heavy toll of the youth and besides this, more than 7000 farmers committed suicide.
He also announced a grant of Rs. 20 lakh by the Punjab Government for the development works at village Chhapar.
