Sukhbir: the Punjab Congress is dead, it has now disintegrated into little kabeelas
Shiromani Akali Dal said on Saturday that Congress as a party was already dead in Punjab and only kabeelas (tribes) remained and that is why everyone was suffering, even the sugar cane farmers seeing each other refuse the guaranteed price by the State (SAP) of Rs 360 per quintal by the sugar factories.
Party Chairman Sukhbir Singh Badal said, “There is (Chief Minister Charanjit Singh) Channi, (State Congress Chairman Navjot Singh) Sidhu, (former PPCC leader Sunil) Jakhar, (the vice president Sukhjinder Singh) Randhawa kabeelas and so on. Even these kabeelas will disintegrate into countless other entities with the leaders of Congress indulging in a
free for all to destroy each other ”.
Speaking to the media here, Badal said, “The Channi government in Punjab is in complete chaos with the right hand not knowing what the left is doing and each acting on their own. It’s exactly like what the Punjabis saw in 1996 when Rajinder Kaur Bhatal replaced Harcharan Brar as CM. February 2022 is going to be a repeat of February 1997, when the Congress party won only 14 seats ”.
Badal also asked Channi to say if he had disowned the entire 2017 Congress manifesto. “He needs to clarify his position on the full loan waiver to all farmers, 25 lakhs of youth jobs, 2,500 rupees per month for the unemployed, free sugar and tea for all the poor and cell phones for the young. It is high time that Channi broke his silence on these promises to which he was also part ”, declared the leader of Akali.
Badal also asked the CM to explain why he had not taken swift action to address the problems of the sugarcane and cotton producers. He said that even though the state government announced a PAS of Rs 360 per quintal, the sugar factories were not ready to pay it.
“Factories do not enter into obligations with farmers to buy cane from SAP. It is also unfortunate that the PAS has not been notified, which raises concerns that it will not be honored by factories, ”Badal said, and asked the CM to compensate farmers affected by the worm attack. pink capsule.
He said he was unhappy that even though no compensation was given to farmers, the government was proclaiming the same through advertisements. He also called on Channi to resolve the DAP fertilizer shortage as soon as possible.
In asking the CM to preach, Badal said he shouldn’t limit himself to making announcements alone. “Channi made announcements totaling Rs 15,000 crore in just over a month, but no money was released to make it a reality. This amounts to deceiving the people ”.
He also asked the CM to treat those who died during Kisan Andolan as well as the four farmers who were killed in Lakhimpur Kheri and to release Rs 50 lakh each for them.
During his visit to Jalandhar town, Badal, escorted by several motorcyclists, visited Phagwara market, Band Bazar, Bansa wala bazaar and the model house road, where he interacted with locals, tasted the local food and compelled people with selfies.
Accompanied by the party leadership, Badal paid tribute to Gurdwara Singh Sabha and Satguru Ravidass Dham in the city. He addressed various rallies in different parts of Jalandhar town and urged voters to opt for a government that has a proven track record of inclusive development, ensuring community peace and harmony.
Among others, the party’s candidate in the 2022 elections Jagbir Singh Brar, Chandan Grewal, Pawan Tinu and Kulwant Singh Manan accompanied him.
