Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, you are deceiving Punjabis in same way like Cong, by forcing them to fill forms to avail of ₹1K/month allowance announced for women: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, you are deceiving Punjabis in same way like Cong, by forcing them to fill forms to avail of ₹1K/month allowance announced for women.

Will only women who fill forms get benefit?

If not, then why are you fooling Punjabis?

Why isn’t it implemented in Delhi?

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal wants to rule over Punjab by hook or by crook, this is why AAP has not announced CM face.

He’s planning to announce name of a dummy so that he can grab the CM chair.

This is why people are leaving AAP in such big droves.

Punjabis won’t tolerate an outsider as a CM.

CM Charanjit Channi who is promoting himself as ‘aam aadmi’, has amassed huge wealth by delineating illegal colonies in Kharar-Ropar besides engaging in sand mining.

He announced projects of thousands of crores but no money is released, all announcements remain on paper only.

Today’s inauguration of Gorakhpur projects symbolizes the fact that when New India decides to do something, nothing is impossible : PM Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi dedicates multiple national development projects including AIIMS, Gorakhpur Fertilizer Plant, & a new building of ICMR-Regional Medical Research Centre (RMRC) worth over ₹9,600 crore in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.

Gorakhpur is the land of Ramprasad Bismil, staying true to ‘Dharma, Adhyatama & Kranti’ since times immortal. It gives me immense joy to introduce these multiple development projects today.

Today’s inauguration of Gorakhpur projects symbolizes the fact that when New India decides to do something, nothing is impossible

Ongoing development in Gorakhpur is the result of immense dedication & our commitment towards ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas & Sabka Prayas’.

We adopted three ‘Sutras’ for the development in Gorakhpur:
1. Illegal use of Urea with Neem coating of Urea
2. Introducing Soil Health Cards for farmers to understand the type of soil they should use
3. Encouraging the use of Urea

Gorakhpur Fertilizer Plant will help in creation of direct and indirect jobs in the Purvanchal region

Gorakhpur will witness a wave of new economic activities, benefitting the farmers, service sector & people involved in the fertilizer business

A special day for the development trajectory of Uttar Pradesh, especially Purvanchal: PM Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi:

A special day for the development trajectory of Uttar Pradesh, especially Purvanchal. At a programme in Gorakhpur, projects worth Rs. 9600 crore would be dedicated to the nation.

It makes me very happy that the Gorakhpur Fertiliser Plant will be revived after remaining shut for over 30 years. This plant is important in order to become Aatmanirbhar in urea production. Will also dedicate to the nation the AIIMS Gorakhpur, which will strengthen health infra.

I will also inaugurate the new building of the ICMR-Regional Medical Research Centre. This Centre has played a key role in curing people from Acute Encephalitis Syndrome. The UP Government has made commendable efforts in the last 4 years in this area.

I warmly thank President Putin for his visit to India: PM Narendra Modi
