By Jagpreet Singh Sandhu ,Chandigarh, January 20 : Reacting hard on UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s visit to Punjab Sanjha Morcha on Friday described it as a disaster which will not be able to stem the rot in the Congress party in Punjab.
Bharat Bhushan Thaper, General Secretary PPP and a nephew of Shaheed Sukhdev stated that it is extremely unfortunate that the UPA chairperson was not able to spell out even a single policy program which could benefit Punjab. “She decided to take the standard tool of indulging in the blame game and conveniently ignored that Punjab was ruled by the Congress party five years ago. The same party and the same leadership which contributed to Punjab’s downfall is now being projected in the 2012 elections”, he added.
Thapar also said that the Punjab Congress, which has nothing to offer brought in Sonia Gandhi to campaign for them, but she failed miserably as she is unable to connect to Punjab and Punjabis. “Her entire speech showed that she was unable to relate to the true issues which Punjab faces today”, he added. “Can Sonia Gandhi even name one agenda or one program that her government can offer to Punjab?” Thaper asked today.
