Mumbai: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal said that Congress was trying to “create drama” to replace a “failed” Chief Minister in Punjab with party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.
“Everyone knows Navjot Sidhu’s record as Local Bodies Minister as he did nothing for the betterment of any city or town. CM Amarinder Singh was oblivious to the plight of the people and did nothing to help them when they needed electricity to sow paddy or run their factories and shops,” the SAD president said.
He said that his government would revive trade and industry in the state by making investment-friendly policies besides reducing power tariffs for the region.
Sukhbir said that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal had tried to shut down thermal plants in Punjab by filing a petition in the Supreme Court after the power situation deteriorated.
“Recently, he promised 300 units free of cost and said that whoever bills for one more unit will have to pay the full amount. Instead of fooling Punjabis, they should be implemented in Delhi.
Those present included NK Sharma, Prakash Chand Garg, Sarup Chand Singla, Harish Rai Dhanda, Vishnu Sharma, Prem Valecha, Ashok Aneja, Harpal Juneja, Rajinder Deepa, Kabir Das, Ashok Sharma, Ashok Manan and Precious Bhagat and party spokesperson Daljit Singh Cheema.
