In its bid to retain the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in the October 11 bypoll necessitated by the death of incumbent Vinod Khanna, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) will get full backing of partner Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), said the latter’s president Sukhbir Singh Badal here on Friday. The pitch of the alliance will be to underline the Congress government’s failure to deliver on poll promises in its six months in power in the state so far, he said.
Senior leaders of both parties will meet in Chandigarh on September 18 to plan for the bypoll.
Sukhbir, addressing a press conference, said, “The Congress government has been exposed as its tenure so far has been an absolute failure. In the last six months, there has been complete collapse in the state. The chief minister is not interested in development. People are not getting salaries and pensions. None of the promises was fulfilled, including loan waiver for farmers, which had actually fetched victory for the Congress. The government has cheated innocent voters.”

Sukhbir Badal said-
The State’s monuments including Virasat-e-Khalsa, Vadda and Chhota Ghallughara or even the heritage street at Amritsar don’t belong to any party but Punjabis. If they are neglected by not allocating funds for their maintenance or insulted by being called white elephants then the loss is of Punjab and Punjabis. Tourism minister Navjot Sidhu has done all this. He should realize that it is his responsibility to protect the heritage of the State. But unfortunately far from realizing this he is behaving as if he is still participating in a laughter challenge episode.
