Malowal (Amloh) – Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal today said the video showing Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur taking money had proved that the new political outfit was a party of looters.
Sukhbir was here to preside over a Sangat Darshan programme for 49 panchayats of the region. He said AAP was a party of looters and the people in the state should beware of the false promises made by AAP leaders.
He said the SAD was the people’s party and its main aim was to raise the living standard of the people.
He said the General Sales Tax (GST) Bill passed by both Houses of Parliament would be tabled in the next session of the Assembly starting from September 5. Answering a query pertaining to PCOCA (Punjab Control of Organised Crime Act), he said the Advocate General had been asked by the council of ministers to study all aspects regarding it. Any decision on the issue would only be taken after getting the final report, he added.
About declaring Gurpreet Singh Raju Khanna as the party candidate from Amloh, he said leaders and workers of every constituency already knew who would be the party candidate from that particular area. The list of candidates would be formally declared soon, he said.
He also laid the foundation stone of a sewerage project worth Rs 16.72 crore for Amloh and disbursed development grants worth Rs 8.7 crore for the 49 villages
