Punjab Assembly polls is seeing twists and turns every day, in recent interview Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on July 6 accused Congress and AAP of inciting communal tension in the state.
In his statement Punjab CM insisted on the fact the Congress has been a pursuer of the divide and rule policy and AAP is following the footsteps of the party which actually brought distress to the state for years.
“Congress has a poor track record of fueling communal hatred for votes and now AAP is following suit,” Badal alleged.
Given the recent events it is clear that AAP is suffering from an “anti-Punjab syndrome” as it discontinued teaching of Punjabi language in schools in Delhi, did not observe a holiday on the occasion of Baisakhi, demolished a water kiosk outside Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib and submitted an affidavit in the apex court against the state on the SYL issue.
AAP has miserably failed to deliver on the hoax promises he made in Delhi to win the elections and is now desperately trying to ‘befool’ voters in Punjab. Denying the false claims made by AAP that Punjab is facing terror threat, Badal said that the state police was fully vigilant and capable of thwarting terror attacks.
He insisted that Government is vigilant on such threats and has also urged the Centre to deploy more BSF personnel on Punjab’s border with Pakistan. “Punjab share the international border with Pakistan. Concerted efforts must be made to strengthened security in the state,” he said.
As for the Congress Chief Capt. Amarinder Singh, Badal said that he harbors false hope of forming government in the state and is holding “darbars”.
AAP has already failed its voters by hurting their emotions and has nothing to show for their current Government in Delhi.
