Reject Delhi-based parties bent on dividing people: Badal

Muktsar/Faridkot/Bathinda, May 19 (UNI) Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal on Sunday appealed to the people of Punjab to reject Delhi-based parties bent on dividing people on caste and communal lines, and urged them to support "their own regional party" which was fighting to safeguard their rights.
The SAD President, who addressed massive rallies in Gidderbaha, Rampura Phul, Jaito and Kotkapura in support of party’s Faridkot LS Seat candidate Rajwinder Singh, said “Punjab is at the crossroads. On the one side are the Delhi based parties who have always looted the state and have consistently denied Punjabis their genuine rights. On the other hand is the SAD which has stood up before the centre to demand MSP be made a legal entity, Punjab’s river waters be secured and religious authority of its institutions be respected”.
Badal also appealed to the people to analyse what the Congress and AAP had delivered vis a vis the SAD. “Both these parties have betrayed you. They have gone back on their promises to waive farmer loans, end drug menace, give Rs 2,500 per month unemployment allowance and Rs 1,000 per month allowance to women”.
