Not only I established rule of law & ensured transparent governance, but maintained ethical conduct even in management of political affairs: Capt Amarinder Singh

Capt Amarinder Singh – Former CM, Punjab:

Former Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh wrote to Congress President Sonia Gandhi yesterday, apprising her of his decision to resign:

Anguished at political events of last ~5 months, which were not based on full understanding of the national imperatives of Punjab and its key concerns

Notwithstanding my personal anguish, I hope this (developments in INC Punjab) won’t damage hard-earned peace & development in Punjab, and the efforts I have been focusing on, would continue unabated, ensuring justice to one and all

People of Punjab are looking up to INC India for its mature & effective public policies, which not only reflect upon good politics, but also address the concerns of the common man that are specific to this border State

Did my best as CM of Punjab, which is border state with many geo-political & other internal security concerns, which I tried to handle effectively without any compromise. Happy that State remained fully peaceful, with complete communal harmony

Not only I established rule of law & ensured transparent governance, but maintained ethical conduct even in management of political affairs, winning 8 out of 13 seats in the Parliament Elections in 2019 and the PRI and ULB Elections decisively



Sad at not being able to personally hand over job letters to kin of 150 farmers who had lost their lives in stir against Farm Laws: Capt Amarinder Singh

Capt Amarinder Singh – Former CM, Punjab:

‘My best wishes to Charanjit Singh Channi.

I hope he’s able to keep the border state of Punjab safe and protect our people from the growing security threat from across the border’

‘Sad at not being able to personally hand over job letters to kin of 150 farmers who had lost their lives in stir against Farm Laws.

Hope CM-designate Charanjit S Channi will do needful at earliest.

I continue to stand with farmers in fight for justice’

I hope that Capt. Amarinder Singh ji won’t take any step that could cause damage to the Congress party: Ashok Gehlot

Ashok Gehlot – Chief Minister, Rajasthan:

I hope that Capt. Amarinder Singh ji won’t take any step that could cause damage to the Congress party.

Capt. Sahib himself has said that the party made him CM and allowed him to continue as CM for nine and a half years.

He has worked to the best of his capacity and served the people of Punjab.

Capt. Amarinder Singh ji is a respected leader of the party and I hope that he will continue to work in the future also keeping the Party’s interests in the forefront.

Capt Amarinder’s resignation is a self admission by Congress & its high command that the party failed Punjab: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Capt Amarinder’s resignation is a self admission by Congress & its high command that the party failed Punjab & has nothing to show for nearly 5 years of governance.

It failed to undertake any development or infra projects.

Capt. has also been punished by nature for lying with Gutka Sahib in hand.

A mere change of guard won’t save INC Punjab’s sinking ship in Punjab.

Its ministers & MLAs are running sand, liquor & drug mafias while looting Punjab.

The devious ploy by Congress high command to avert a backlash against the party by putting the blame on one person alone won’t succeed.

Akali Dal core committee has decided to reschedule ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign by 6 days: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Akali Dal core committee has decided to reschedule ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign by 6 days.

We have formed a 3-member committee comprising BS Bhundar, Prof PS Chandumajra & MS Sirsa to talk to farmer organisations & remove all misunderstandings.

Campaign will restart from Amloh on Sept 10.

The core committee also resolved that Punjabis must take note of nefarious designs of Cong & AAP as their workers were posing as farmers to disturb Akali Dal functions.

This is being done as part of conspiracy hatched by central agencies to impose President Rule in Punjab.

We feel the BJP is behind these conspiracies as it wants to repeat the 1992 scenario and manipulate its way to power through a fake mandate.

We are ready to lay down our lives but don’t want a return of those black days which took the State back by decades.

Delighted to start the day-long tour to the 7th constituency today, under ‘100 days 100 constituencies’ of ‘Gall Punjab Di’ Yatra with Gurusahab’s blessings at Gurdwara Sri Degsar Sahib, Katana Sahib.

Led a bike rally of enthusiastic youth to Mattewara grain market in Sahnewal.

Showing faith in the vision of SAD-BSP coalition for progress & development of Punjab, thousands of youth have turned up for the event. Deeply satisfying to the heart to see the wave of change sweeping through Punjab.

Cong & AAP are trying to disturb SAD’s ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign with protests.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha made it clear their protest is only against BJP.

Our caravan will continue. Cong govt will be responsible for any untoward incident as cops have been restrained from doing their job.

Akali Dal is committing to fulfilling the 13-point programme announced by it.

We have never taken any oaths nor got any forms filled in the past unlike Congress earlier & Aam Aadmi Party now.

Our credibility is our strength.

The next SAD-BSP govt will ensure development of Sahnewal & we are committed to establishing a hospital and girls college besides a play ground.

The constituency will continue to be led by Sharanjit Singh Dhillon who is the party’s candidate for 2022 elections.

Be ready to face a no confidence motion in next Vidhan Sabha session: Sukhbir Singh Badal to Punjab CM

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Amidst thousands of people at a massive rally in Bagha Purana it was a pleasure to announce the candidature of Jathedar Tirath Singh Mahla from this constituency.

Jathedar Mahla is known as an honest & grass root level leader who has always worked assiduously for Akali Dal

Akali Dal has designed novel schemes to ensure all commitments made by us can be implemented.

This includes putting up 10,000 MW solar plant which will provide free power to PSPCL for supply to farmers. We will save Rs 8,000 crore which will be used to extend promised benefits to people.

Capt Amarinder be ready to face a no confidence motion in next Vidhan Sabha session. You cheated Punjabis by holding 1 day session, simply to fulfill constitutional requirements!

If your ministers aren’t corrupt then why are you running from people’s questions?

Happy to share that after consultation with farmers, have approved SAP for sugarcane at Rs 360 per quintal.

Sugarcane farmers ‘State Assured Price’ has not increased since 2018, whereas input cost has increased by over 30%: Navjot Singh Sidhu

Navjot Singh Sidhu – President – Punjab Congress:

The sugarcane farmers issue needs to be immediately resolved amicably..

Strange that despite the higher cost of cultivation in Punjab the state assured price (SAP) is too low as compared to Haryana/UP/Uttarakhand.

As torchbearer of agriculture, the Punjab SAP should be better!

Sugarcane farmers SAP has not increased since 2018, whereas input cost has increased by over 30%.

Punjab model means policy interventions giving fair prices, equitable share in profits, diversification in production & processing to give more profits to both farmers & sugar mill.

SAP should be immediately hiked as per farmers demands & pending dues should be released.

Along with Modernization of Sugar Mills for higher productivity & production of high-value byproducts (ethanol, biofuel & electricity) for boosting profits of both Farmers and Sugar Mills.

Anil Joshi Ji brings with him not just massive grassroot support but also a well grounded culture of service to the people: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Hindu-Sikh ekta & Bhaicharak Sanjh got a boost in Punjab with Sr BJP leaders & ex-minister Anil Joshi joining SAD after resigning in support of farmers.

Other leaders included Sukhjit Kaur Shahi, Mohit Gupta, Kamal Chatly, Raj Gupta, RD Sharma,Harjit Bhullar, Aman Aery & Mintu Sharma.

Anil Joshi Ji’s aggressive advocacy of interests of Punjab, Punjabi & Punjabiyat has always been so remarkable that he has always struck everyone as an Akali at heart.

Today we have formalised what was always a bonding of hearts & minds.

Anil Joshi Ji brings with him not just massive grassroot support but also a well grounded culture of service to the people and an ideology rooted in pride of Punjab.

He parted ways with BJP to stand by the farmers & he is now with the most farmer friendly party in the country.

It’s remarkable that Joshi Ji is now in the party for whom farmers’ cause has always been sacred. And there is a strong symbolism in his joining Akali Dal this day, August 20, the martyrdom day of Sant Harchand Singh Ji Longowal, the apostle of Peace & communal harmony.

Today’s function is dedicated to the Kisan Sangharsh as well as supreme sacrifice made by Sant Longowal ji for communal harmony.

Akali Dal is committed to assemble all Punjabis under one umbrella & this is the reason why we have inducted senior most BJP workers into our party.

Pleased to appoint ex-minister Anil Joshi as Sr Vice President of Akali Dal.

Raj Gupta & Sukhjeet Shahi ji have been appointed as vice presidents & Mohit Gupta as party’s Gen secy/PAC member/spokesman.

Mr Joshi & Mr Gupta will be SAD-BSP candidates for Amritsar North & Sujanpur.
