Punjab Elections 2017: PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi to address rallies

The Congress is a sinking boat says Narendra Modi in Punjab

The Congress is a sinking boat says Narendra Modi in Punjab

"Congress, at first, badmouthed the SP in UP, but after seeing the conflict within the party, allied with them", said Prime Minister Modi. Besides, Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, Ramlal, Narendra Tomar and Avinash Rai Khanna will campaign for the BJP candidates.

Mounting criticism on the Congress, Modi called the party a "sinking ship", desperately looking for alliances in different States and urged the voters to teach them a lesson in the February 4 Assembly elections.

He defended Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and praised him for serving the people of the state for decades.

Gandhi also said if voted to power, the Congress would bring in such a stringent law against the menace of drugs in Punjab that peddlers would shiver even thinking about drugs.

He asked Mr. Modi how could he share the dais with those Akali leaders who faced allegations of corruption and sacrilege, while claiming to be fighting corruption.

In his speech at Majitha, Rahul Gandhi alleged that the Badal family has "taken away everything from Punjab" accusing them of forcing the people of the state to pay a "Badal tax". "Amarinder Singh is the chief ministerial candidate and he will be Punjab's chief minister", he said, prompting leaders to congratulate Amarinder Singh on the dais. He accused the grand old party of defaming the state. "But there is no point in voting for the party as it can not form government with these limited seats", said Sukhbir Badal. He has worked day and night for the development of Punjab. He will be visiting all the Badal citadels, including Lambi, Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal's constituency and Jalalabad, his son and deputy Sukhbir Badal's seat.

Majitha is the battleground for the Badals's kin and close associate Bikram Singh Majithia.

He claimed that Akali-BJP government was set to return to government after the results of assembly polls are announced on 11 March.

"Due to selfish interests and lack of will for proper discussion, some people are trying to humiliate Punjab", Modi said.
