SAD sees no threat from BJP in Assembly poll, says Sukhbir

Amritsar, November 18

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said his party saw no threat from the BJP in the 2022 Assembly elections, even as it has decided to contest all seats.

Paying obeisance at the Golden Temple along with his wife Harsimrat Kaur Badal, he said the SAD would abide by the directions of the Akal Takht. During the SGPC’s centenary celebrations, Akal Takht officiating Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh had preached SAD to revive its Panthic agenda and SAD should start journey from Punjab to Panth so that no one could separate the mother (SGPC) from its son (SAD).

Taking a jibe at the estranged alliance partner BJP, he said: “It was BJP’s long wish to contest all seats in Punjab. Like any other party, they too have right to do so,” he said, adding: “At least the Punjab unit of the BJP could have acted as a ‘mediator’ to convey farmers’ cause to the Centre, instead of trying to pacify farmers with the newly enacted farm laws.”

Targetting the Congress government, he alleged there was not a single development work done in its four-year regime. Drug, liquor and sand mafia prospered in the state in connivance with its MLAs and the CM has given them free hand. — TNS
