Jan 06, 2018-Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday targeted Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and said that Congress government is playing with the lives of farmers in Punjab by proposing to implement a fraudulent crop loan waiver.

“Nearly 400 farmers had committed suicide after the government failed to implement the promised Rs 90,000 loan waiver covering cooperative and nationalized banks as well as private money lenders. Congress led government has prepared package of 1500 crore instead of loan waiver of Rs 90,000” said Badal. Badal further said that SAD government exempted Rs 6000 crore tube-well bills in 6 year. 

Meanwhile Badal also held a meeting with Ludhiana leaders at Chandigarh regarding upcoming Ludhiana MC elections. Akali Dal declares Hardeep Singh as Chandigarh Akali Dal President in today meeting. Akali Dal Spokesperson Daljit Cheema confirms this information and said Sukhbir Singh Badal gives assurance to give posts to youth.

In a meeting, Badal said that we will respond to the Congress in Ludhiana civic body elections. The committee has been formed including Daljit Cheema, Sharanjit Dhillon, Balwinder Bhunder, Sikander Maluka. When 75 seats, the SAD fought from 38 seats and the BJP fought from 37 seats. But now 95 seats are there, SAD will contest from 48 seats and BJP will contest from 47 seats.
