Chandigarh, Feburary 28 :Fearing imminent defeat in parliamentary elections, instead of seeking winning candidates from its own cadre or leadership, Shiromani Akali Dal is resorting to selection of government employees, singers and congress leaders in order to make them scapegoats in losing the poll. Stating this former minister and senior congress leader Mr. Jagmohan Singh Kang, here today, claimed that the route of SAD-BJP combine in the state was like writing on the wall as its candidates would crumble under their own weight like pack of cards due to misgovernance and mismanagement on different fronts by the Punjab government. He said that it was ridiculous that leaving senior and seasoned akalis, Hans Raj Hans a renowned singer, Gurcharan Singh Galib of congress origin and Dr. Daljeet Singh Cheema, a novice in politics were given tickets from Jalandhar, Ludhiana and Anandpur Sahib respectively. He lamented that full page advertisements of big projects like Max hospital, tdi city, pearl city etc.
were being inserted in news papers by government to the advantage of private companies. He said that express way mooted by the government from Banur to Phagwara was sheer wastage of money, agricultural land and resources and was being constructed on BOT basis, hence money would be earned by private party for whose benefit the scheme was planned. The existing road can be strengthened and widened to smoothen the flow of traffic.
