Ludhiana: Former chief minister and senior Congress leader Rajinder Kaur Bhattal once again hit out at the SAD-BJP state government saying that the ruling parties have neglected development in rural areas. Addressing a rally in Ludhiana’s Model Gram, she said that despite getting crores of financial aid in the last decade, there had been little development in rural parts of Punjab and funds meant for rural development had been diverted for other purposes.
Bhattal has said that the Akalis are misleading the people by doing antics like submitting memorandum on the SYL issue. She said that if they are sincere about the issue, Harsimrat Kaur Badal should resign from the Cabinet in protest and the Akalis should stage a dharna against the Centre. She stated this at a political rally here. On AAP, Bhattal said that Kejriwal deliberately does something or the other and then apologises to the people. “Kejriwal has apologised so many times that he should be named ‘Maafiwal’ instead,” she said
