Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today criticised Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh for deciding to celebrate the birth anniversary of former PM Rajiv Gandhi. 

At a workers meeting here, he said that Capt Amarinder Singh and the Congress party should explain why they were planning to rub salt on the wounds of Punjabis, particularly Sikhs, by organizing state functions on Rajiv’s birthday? “Rajiv ordered the killings of our Sikh brothers and sisters.

Slamming the Congress government for neglecting the development of the Abohar area, the SAD president said it was ill-fate of the residents here that despite being so powerful, Sunil Jakhar did nothing for this constituency. “Once the SAD-BJP returns to power in the state, we will give a complete facelift to Abohar constituency. I am trying to get new trains for this area. I met to Union Railway Minister  Piyush Goyal and requested him for the same, he added.

He said a food processing unit would also come up in Abohar shortly, besides assured cemented roads in the city within one year, “In our government, all villages across the state will have sewerage system, water supply and concrete roads” the SAD president promised.

Taking on the CM for not visiting the flood-affected villages to ensure the safety of people and their belongings, the SAD president said Capt Amarinder did not spare time to visit the villages inundated by the floodwaters. “As CM, it is his responsibility to monitor the rescue and relief operations himself as the people are going through a harrowing time due to damage to their crops and household items,” he added.
