Addressing a rally at Rama Mandi, he accused Badals of neglecting the religious town. He said concerted efforts would be made to develop the town. He also announced the construction of a flyover in Rama Mandi to solve traffic problems.

He questioned his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal as why he promised Rs 2,500 assistance for women in Goa and not the same for Punjab. He said AAP were outsiders who have done nothing but only false promises. He said pink bollworm-hit farmers would get Rs 17,000 compensation by next week. — TNS
