'Rahul Gandhi, who is out to defame Punjab by branding its youth as drug addicts, is the biggest enemy of the state and he has given proof of his being anti-Punjab and anti-Sikh through such ideology’ this was stated today by Punjab Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal. He further said that if congress scion really believes about presence of drugs in Punjab then he would do very well to conduct dope tests on youth congress leaders and if anybody among them tests positive then it will be construed as the presence of drugs in Punjab.
Interacting with mediapersons at information center after paying obeisance at Darbar Sahib along with his wife Harsimrat Kaur Badal, he disclosed that Punjab has touched heights of prosperity during SAD-BJP regime besides getting numerous awards on national level but still congress and leaders of other opposition parties are maligning fair name of Punjab by spreading white lies which is in very bad taste. He further questioned that how can a community like Punjabis known for its bravery and feeding whole nation be branded as drug addict?
Attacking congress, Badal divulged that the truth has come out with the registration of a case against PPCC chief Captain Amarinder Singh’s son Raninder Singh that captain family has accounts in foreign banks besides assets. Reiterating his standing on SYL canal issue, Deputy Chief Minister said that there never was a need for this canal nor would it allowed to be constructed even if sacrifices had to be made.
