Newly elected Punjab Pardesh Congress Committee chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Saturday said the implementation of the 18-point pro-people agenda set up by the party high command was the only option to address the grievances of people in the state.
Sidhu was here on the invitation of local MLA and minister Charanjit Singh Channi to visit different religious places, including Gurdwara Katalgarh Sahib at Chamkaur Sahib.
After addressing the media at Channi’s residence, Sidhu refused to take questions.
In his address, Sidhu said people of Punjab wanted to know the names of the big fish behind drug smuggling and ruining the youth in the state. Their names had to be revealed, he said.
All Punjabis had been waiting for justice in the cases of sacrilege and firing incidents, he added.
People also wanted to know as to why Punjab is purchasing power at a price of Rs 18 per unit despite the fact that it is being purchased by other states at Rs 7 per unit.
Reiterating his support to the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, Sidhu said he would go barefoot to meet the farmers whenever they intended to meet him. “I want to seek guidance from them that in what way the state government could solve their issues, including their demands regarding three agriculture laws,” he said.
