Inaugurating and laying foundation stones of various development projects worth Rs 350 crore in Kotkapura, Jaito and Faridkot, the Deputy Chief Minister claimed the Akali Dal is the only party which genuinely represents Punjab whereas Congress and AAP were only “lusting” after power.
Sukhbir came down heavily on AAP, and said they were “bunch of outsiders who don’t have any inkling about the culture and tradition of Punjab”.
Terming AAP as Punjab’s “biggest enemy”, Badal alleged the party was trying to “disrupt communal harmony and brotherhood” in the state.

It also wondered whether this was the reason behind the probe agencies going “slow” in the investigation.
“This deal started during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s tenure.
It was completed by the Manmohan Singh government and (it) cancelled the deal
.AAP leader Sanjay Singh said. It appears that since Congress and the BJP have both blackened their hands, this is why the Modi government is not taking any action against Sonia Gandhi,”
“If the intentions of Modi government is to combat corruption, then it should arrest those involved in it, right from Sonia Gandhi, Ahmed Patel to S P Tyagi and many other officers and politicians…whose name in involved in the Agusta Westland chopper deal. He said Even some journalists are believed to have been involved,” .
The party also posed six questions to the government over the investigations in the deal.
AAP leader Ashutosh said.
“It is evident that S P Tyagi has taken bribe. What is the connection of S P Tyagi with Vivekananda Foundation. NSA Ajit Doval and Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary Nripendra Misra, both believed to be very powerful bureaucrats linked to Vivekananda Foundation.
Strongly refuting the allegations, the government termed attempts to link Doval and Misra to one of the accused as “totally baseless assertion and indicative of malicious intent”.
[Gurdaspur, Punjab] SAD Led Punjab to Start 200 skill development centers
Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today said 200 skill development centers would be opened across the state to make the youth as employment generators not the job seekers.
Elaborating the plans of Punjab government to ensure all round development of the state, he said the government would open 2 skill development centers in every block of border districts, where the youth would be imparted free training in various streams to increase their avenues for self-employment.
The youth would contribute to the state’s development as also to their own family by being self employed with increase in resources, the Dy CM said.
Addressing a gathering at Shaheed Lieutenant Navdeep Singh (Ashoka Chakra) Sports stadium on the eve of inauguration of automated driving test track centre constructed at a cost of Rs 1.20 crore by state transport department, he said Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has vision and farsightedness to empower the youth.
He also informed that every center would see the 1,000 youth passing out taking the total number of annual pass outs to more than 1.50 lakh fully skilled and trained youth.
He said that the state government would provide jobs to 1,20,000 youth of the state through a transparent process.
Terming ‘Kohinoor’ diamond an inseparable part of cultural heritage of the state, SAD president said that every effort would be made to bring this precious diamond back to Punjab and the matter would be pursued with the Centre.
He also said SGPC has been asked to file a petition in the Supreme Court in this regard.
Badal said the state government has formulated a policy to give interest free cash crop loans of Rs 50,000 to the farmers.
“Farmers’ tubewell bills have also been waived off for which the state government pays Rs 6,000 crore from its own coffers to the Powercom,” he said.
Launching a scathing attack on Congress, he said the Congress created unnecessary noise on the issue of cash credit limit (CCL) for purchase of foodgrains and misguided the public on this issue but it has been given a befitting reply with the announcing of CCL to Punjab which has amply proved that Congress wanted to delay the loans just to malign SAD-BJP government and score political brownie points.
Attacking Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), he said its so called formula of governance, if any, has miserably failed in Delhi and now it has set its eyes on Punjab with next year’s Assembly elections in mind.
