Avenge Amarinder's Thaggi - Help SAD-BJP win all 13 LS seats: Sukhbir on Maghi Mela



Akali Dal president said Manpreet Badal's zulm as bad as Mughal's zulm; Quotes Sikh principle of Miri-Piri to defend political rally of SAD
 
MUKTSAR SAHIB, JANUARY 14: In an overtly political speech on the occasion of Maghi Mela, Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal today slammed those arguing against political rallies on historical Sikh religious occasions, said the principle of Miri-Piri intertwines politics and religion, and gave a clarion call to Punjab's electorate to help the Akali Dal-BJP combine win all 13 seats.

"Aapan hankari raje tau badla laina hai, vote paa ke. Ikk vari tusi saariyan teran (13) diyan teran (13) seeta jita diyo, phir bus tuhada hee raaj challooga. It's just a matter of eight-ten more months," Sukhbir Singh Badal told the huge gathering.

Resorting to a dramatic presentation of Amarinder Singh's promise to the farmers and farm labourers of waiving off their debts, ensuring a job for each household and promise of unemployment allowance, Sukhbir Singh Badal said it all turned out to be a bunch of deliberate false promises.
 

He said Amarinder government had promised the moon, but delivered a farm waiver of negligible scale. "They have not even looked towards the farm labourers,” he added.

Ridiculing the government's claims of inheriting an empty treasury, Sukhbir Singh Badal said the government should know how to manage things, and then went hammer and tongs after cousin Manpreet Singh Badal, the Finance Minister of Punjab.

"Manpreet ne zindagi vich koyee kamm keeta ae?..Asli mughlan di rooh Manpreet vich aa gayee hai...Tusi kadi Manpreet Punjabi bolda suniya hai? Bus, Urdu..Urdu! Ghalib tau thalle utarda hee nahi!

 "Manpreet ne zindagi vich koyee kamm keeta ae?..Asli mughlan di rooh Manpreet vich aa gayee hai...Tusi kadi Manpreet Punjabi bolda suniya hai? Bus, Urdu..Urdu! Ghalib tau thalle utarda hee nahi! He has even given the grant to Urdu, not to Punjabi language," Sukhbir SIngh Badal said.

"Jinna zulm Manpreet Badal ne Gidderbaha halke walian utte keeta, jiven Mughal karde si," he added.

"In contrast, (Parkash Singh) Badal Sahib fulfilled every promise that he had made, including free power to farmers and compensation for crops destroyed due to inclement weather," the SAD chief said.

"Aseen jo kiha tuhanu, uh poora keeta ke nahi? Main kiha si sadka eho jihiyan bana diyange, bhaven bomb sutt diyo.. hun ja ke sadak dekho Bathinda-Chandigarh wali!"

"Sikh community respects all religions...Sikhs made the maximum sacrifices for the country before the Independence as well as after it," he said.

"Our Shiromani Akali Dal is a 97 year old party. Sikh quom di numainda jathebandi hai," Sukhbir Singh Badal said, adding, "Whenever Punjab has made any progress, whatever has been achieved in Punjab, it has been only during the chief ministership of Parkash Singh Badal...There would not be a single household in Muktsar which my father Parkash Singh Badal would have visited."

  Manpreet kade Ghalib tau thalle nahi uttarda; Doesn't speak Punjabi, only Urdu...Urdu!
 
The Akali Dal president also slammed the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress for joining hands in fooling the Punjabis, who, he said, fell for "their lies." 

"Aapa'n thagge gaye (We have been robbed)," he said.
 
Manpreet Badal pays tribute at Maghi Mela 
 
Meanwhile, Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal on Sunday announced several projects for the development of Muktsar, including construction of Railway over Bridge (ROB) on the Jalalabad Road, as well as upgradation of the stadium and the Panjab University Regional Centre.

The Minister made the announcements at a press conference after paying tributes, on behalf of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, at the Maghi Shaheedi Jor Mela, in remembrance of the 40 Muktas, and after paying obeisance at the Muktsar gurdwara.

On the issue of the Akali decision to hold political conference at the Mela, Manpreet said religious functions should be free from politics, as also asserted by the Chief Minister. The Congress had strictly followed the directive of the Akal Takht by not holding any such conference at Fatehgarh Sahib, and now at Muktsar, and all other parties should also do the same instead of trying to take political mileage through such programmes, he added.
