“The BJP government is contesting the elections on the basis of their work. Some people who have no record of work come here to spread lies. They talk about making Punjab drug-free.

Referring to the drug problem in Punjab, the Prime Minister said: “Imagine you have a bungalow, a farm, a car, a good life… it’s all there. But if your son is addicted to drugs, so what will this property of yours be for. We must create an environment to fulfill the dreams of mothers and sisters for their children. I must repay my debt to Punjab. We will leave no stone unturned for the youth of Punjab, to Punjab detox.”
Prime Minister Modi has said that trade and business in Punjab is in the grip of mafias.
Expressing his confidence in the victory of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the upcoming National Assembly elections, the Prime Minister said that New Punjab will be full of opportunity and debt free.
Mentioning Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s previous alliance with Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), he said, “When we were with Akali Dal, we always accepted our small role in treating SAD like an elder brother. He was a time when Akali Dal did not have an absolute majority, their government could not function without the support of the BJP. In this situation, the post of Deputy Chief Minister should have been given to the BJP. But at that time also, an injustice was done to us, and Badal sahib made his son the deputy chief minister. We had more deputies, the government might have fallen. But still, for the sake of Punjab, we did not committed this sin.
Punjab will go to the Assembly polls on February 20 and the vote count will take place on March 10. In the 2017 Assembly polls in the state, Congress had won an outright majority by winning 77 seats and overthrew the SAD-BJP government which had been in power for 10 years. (ANI)
