Phagwara, October 8
Punjab Youth Congress president Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary, while making a scathing attack on the ruling SAD-BJP, said it was a fact that the ‘atrocities’ of the government do not seem to end. After making a long list of empty promises, they seem to have backtracked on all the promises they made in their election manifesto.

Addressing a rally organised to receive the ‘Adhikar Yatra’ of Punjab Youth Congress on its seventh day here today, he said the youth of Punjab today were highly disoriented and grappling with not just unemployment but also reeling under the influence of drugs.The sand mafia, drug mafia and illegal mining have become lucrative and thriving businesses.

He said property tax which has been meticulously designed by serving bureaucrats as well as those who were enjoying the perks of power after retirement to fill up the coffers of the Badal government.


He posed a question to the local BJP MLA-cum-Chief Parliamentary Secretary Som Prakash who is the architect of the Property Tax and Land Acquisition by PUDA implementation programme, which has made the common man totally helpless. On the other hand boasting of projects worth thousands of crore, Sukhbir Badal has no answer to why the government employees had not been paid their salaries for several months.

Hundreds of Youth Congress activists welcomed the Adhikar Yatra led by PYC chief under the leadership of Jagjit Bittu where former Cabinet Minister S Joginder Singh Mann appreciated the effort made by PYC Chief Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary and his team of spreading the message of the UPA Govt to every corner of the state.

Earlier in the day the yatra was given a rousing welcome at Mehli village under Banga constituency by Tarlochan Singh Soond MLA.

Another reception was given at Chandigarh Chowk by Balbir Raja Sodhi who said that it was a commendable initiative by Punjab Youth Congress under its Chief Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary.
