LUDHIANA, March 9: The national spokesperson of the All India Congress Committee, Manish Tewari today said, the SAD-BJP alliance in the state was destroying the state in the name of development. Addressing two separate meetings organized by the District Congress Committee Ludhiana and the District Youth Congress, Tewari alleged that the alliance government has just been juggling the figures to deceive the people.
Addressing the leaders and office bearers during the DCC meeting, which was attended among others by the president, Jamohan Sharma, Milkiat Singh, Rakesh Pandey, KK Bawa, Nahar Singh Gill and others, Tewari said, the two years of Akali rule and only seen the corruption all around. He asked the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his Deputy Chief Minister son Sukhbir Badal in particular to explain where from they will get the money to start and implement all the projects they have been claiming to have launched.
And what happened to all these projects, Tewari asked, while pointing out, “during the last two years we have seen almost everyday newspaper pages carrying advertisements that such and such project was launched but nothing exists on the ground”. He observed, either the SAD-BJP government is launching these projects on the files only or have been robbing and destroying the state of funds in the name of development.
Speaking at the meeting of the District Youth Congress organized by its president Dimple Rana, Tewari said, the alliance government had cheated the youth and educated. He pointed out, during the campaigning the SAD-BJP alliance had promised moon to the youth, but the government has not provided employment even to a single youth. He said, the way the unemployment was growing in the state could prove very dangerous as the youth were getting frustrated.
Appealing to the youth to support the Congress, he said, the Congress under the dynamic leadership of Prime Manmohan Singh had a great vision which will address the concerns of all the sections of the society, particularly the youth. He pointed out, the Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi in particular had been emphasizing on involving the youth in a large scale with the country’s development.
