The SAD had contested the 2019 Haryana Assembly polls in alliance with Indian National Lok Dal (#INLD), although Badal’s party was is in alliance with BJP in Punjab and a partner of NDA at the Centre.
SAD contested three seats and failed to open its account while its ally INLD could retain the Ellenabad seat from where Abhay Singh Chautala won.
Badal, apparently played a crucial role in bringing together the JJP and the BJP to form a government in Haryana,
He said the saffron party is “in favour of communal harmony and peace” in the country.
Badal also said the former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, the great-grandfather of Dushyant Chautala, was his “closest friend and sympathiser”.
“Today I am happy that Devi Lal’s grandson (Dushyant) became the deputy chief minister of Haryana,” he said.
[Chd,Pb]Capt Amarinder Govt ‘Reneged’ on Poll Promises: SAD
Amarinder Singh-led Congress government completing its two-year tenure
“The Congress government has cheated and betrayed the trust of the people of Punjab by reneging on each and every promise made to farmers, khet mazdoor, youth, dalits, industry and government employees during the last two years,” senior SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia said while addressing media on the occasion of completion of two-year tenure of the Congress government.
“The government was characterised by repression, corruption, misgovernance, hypertaxation and non-performance,” he alleged.
“If there is one thing, the Congress government has delivered upon it is the politicisation of the probe into the Kotkapura and Behbalkalan incidents by first forming the Ranjit Singh Commission and now SIT which is controlled by the Congress party. All serious issues like forming a Lokpal, tabling assets of officers and providing legal aid to SC and BCs have been put on the back-burner,” the former Akali minister alleged.
Marking completion of two years of the Congress government as ‘Vishvasghat Divas’ (betrayal day) Saturday, Majithia accused the party of not only “failing” Punjabis, but also causing “untold misery and hardship” to the people by denying them social welfare benefits like Shagun scheme, old age pension, scholarships, mid-day meals.
“Never before in the history of the state has any government performed so poorly on all fronts. It seems there is no government in Punjab,” he claimed.
He charged the government with indulging in a public relations exercise to hide its “utter failure”.
“The first and foremost failure of the government was its inability to implement the Rs 90,000 crore complete loan waiver promise made by Amarinder. This failure resulted in an increase in farm suicides which crossed the 900 mark,” Majithia alleged.
The farm sector had suffered the most in the Congress rule with sugarcane farmers not being given their dues, which had accumulated to Rs 900 crore again, he alleged.
Stating that an entire generation of youth had been “betrayed” by the Congress government, Majithia said the youth were promised jobs in each household under the ‘Ghar Ghar Naukri’ scheme.
“What they got was fake job melas. Even Rs 2,500 per month unemployment allowance has not been given to anyone. In fact the government has played a cruel joke on youth by registering only 150 unemployed youth,” he alleged.
The workers of both the Shiromani Akali Dal and the Bharatiya Janata Party organised roadshows and ‘dharnas’ in all the assembly constituencies of the state Saturday, as per the party release.
The demonstrations were held in Amritsar, Bathinda, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Patiala , Mohali and Gurdaspur.

Dhindsa said the accused in the sting claims that no action was taken against him except a sham enquiry.
Congress leader Anand Sharma said rules of the House do not allow any matter which is sub-judice to be discussed.
The House cannot be converted into a trial court, he said.
Naidu said the SAD member and some others had met him and showed him the CD of the purported sting operation.

[Chandigarh,Punjab]Punjab Govt Moves Resolution Against Construction of SYL
Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today moved a resolution in Punjab Assembly against the construction of Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal
Opposition Congress members kepT away from the House.
Badal moved a resolution saying in the interest of the people of Punjab, the House unanimously directs the state government, Cabinet and all government officials not to hand over the state’s land for the construction of SYL canal and neither allow anybody to work on it, nor to cooperate for the purpose.
The resolution was moved amidst empty opposition benches
All 42 Congress MLAs had resigned from the state Assembly after the apex court’s decision on Thursday.
A special session of the state Assembly was convened after the Supreme Court held as “unconstitutional” the 2004 law passed by the Punjab government to terminate the SYL canal water sharing agreement with neighbouring states.
Yesterday, upping the ante against the construction of Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal, Punjab Cabinet announced that it will denotify the land acquired for the project and return it to the “original owners” at no cost
