Says budget concentrates on the poor and farmers, where most of the country lives, that’s where growth is needed.
He says money is required for rebuilding canal systems and rejuvenation of ground water.
He warns that if Punjab, the agricultural capital of the country, runs out of water, feeding the billions of people of the country will become a herculean task.
Mr. Badal says that the state faces many threats including ‘narco-terrorism’ by Pakistan at the Wagha border, where 420 kg of drugs were nabbed. He asks for special care for the state.
