Sangrur, Apr 25 UNI | 3 months ago

The Congress candidate from Sangrur Vinjay Inder Singla today said BJP's PM pick Narendra Modi's persona is against a federal and participative style of democracy which is so essential for maintaining the unity of India.

Addressing election meetings here to the polls which are scheduled to held on April 30, he said Akali-BJP Government has created a fear psychosis in Punjab and the common man does not have freedom of speech and is being intimidated by government controlled machinery to bow to their command.

Mr Singla said no amount of freebies and doles can work to the benefit of commonman unless they are backed by a honest and credible political administration which is missing in the state and people are fed up of the mafia governance.

The Congress MP remarked that he has been constantly endeavouring to bring development projects to his constituency in the last 5 years as an MP and Akalis only contribution has been to create hurdles and get cheap publicity whether it was the Cancer Hospital project or Sewerage funding.

On the issue of Modi factor in Punjab, he said there is a strong anti-Akali wave in the state and BJP is an equal partner in creating this situation.

Mr Singla stated that Akali-BJP government has not been able to further the interests of all sections of society in the state and commonman is feeling alienated and cheated.

The manifesto is not taken seriously by the Akali-BJP government nor they have the capacity to deliver with an empty treasury.

"The tall claims and promises are only to fool the honest people but his election tours show that people have now made up their minds to cast their vote on 30 April for merit and performance only and not to candidates who stand for deceit and gimmickry," he added.
