In its first meeting with the Akali-BJP alliance leadership of three districts of 9 Lok Sabha segments Ferozepur Lok Sabha constituency after the announcement of elections, at Guruharsahai, near Ferozepur, Sukhbir Singh Badal, Deputy Chief Minister and President Shiromani Akali Dal, in his address said, invited the people to make Narendera Modi as Prime Minister by sweeping the Congress from the nation.
Addressing the mammoth gathering of MLAs, former MLAs, Chairmen, Zira Parshad, Block Samiti Members, Sukhbir Singh Badal said, our seniors and old-timers have fought for freedom of India in 1947. Not only in Punjab but in every corner of the country, the people of India are curious to get free the nation from Congress.
He further said, for the last seven years, during our rule in Punjab, the developments have been going with very limited funds and when now the NDA government is going to be formed at the Centre headed by Narendera Modi, there will be no shortage of funds in the state because of close association between Narendera Modi and Parkash Singh Badal.
He said, it is my earnest desire that there should be a flow of development works like Ganga by giving priority to the border areas.
He was confident in saying that after the formation of government of Narendera Modi, there will be a sea-change in the development of Punjab within a period of two years.
Sukhbir Badal appealed to all the Akali-BJP alliance leaders and workers to put their contribution in forming the NDA government in the country by voting in favour of party candidate keeping aside any differences.
