Capt Amarinder’s resignation a self admission that Cong failed to perform in Punjab: Sukhbir

Capt Amarinder’s resignation a self admission that Cong failed to perform in Punjab: Sukhbir

Chandigarh, Sep 18 (UNI) Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s resignation was a self admission on the part of the Congress party as well as its high command that the party had failed to perform in Punjab and had nothing to show for more than four and a half years of governance.
Asserting that this was a testimony to what the SAD had been stating all along, Mr Badal said Capt Amarinder had been punished by nature for lying with Gutka Sahib in hand and that every member of the Congress party would suffer the same fate.
He said a mere change of guard would not save the Congress party’s sinking ship in Punjab. He said the entire State cabinet as well as the Congress MLAs were steeped in corruption and were running various kinds of mafias including sand, liquor and drug mafias. “The Congress party cannot hope to save its incompetent government and befool Punjabis with a mere change in face”.
