Parties ‘targeting’ SAD under guise of farm protest

Sukhbir Singh Badal

Hoshiarpur, October 12

Congress and AAP workers have been protesting in the guise of farmers to target Akali leaders, said SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal here today.

Addressing a rally at Pandori Khajoor village here in support of BSP’s joint Hoshiarpur candidate Varinder Singh Parihar, Sukhbir targeted the Congress saying party’s Dalit Chief Minister card would not improve the lives of the downtrodden.

CM Charanjit Singh Channi was a Cabinet minister in the Capt Amarinder Singh government when the Scheduled Caste student scholarship scam came to light, he said.

On the eviction of Sikh families in Shilling, he said the SAD would not allow them go homeless. Meanwhile, former minister Balbir Singh Miani returned to the SAD fold. He along with colleagues joined the party in Sukhbir’s presence. During the last Assembly elections, Miani had quit the SAD to join the Congress. — OC
