Congress would dump Debt waiver promise after coming to power : CM Badal
Gurdaspur : Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal blasted Congress while addressing the gathering during Sangat Darshan program in Dera Baba Nanak assembly segment here today. Reminding the people about notorious past of Congress to backtrack from promises made to them, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that repeating the history Congress would dump the issue of debt waiver after coming to power in the state.
CM recalled that Congress has never ever fulfilled the promises made to the people. He said that the promise of Garibi Hatao was never fulfilled by the Congress adding that despite of promising Chandigarh and Punjabi speaking areas to the state along with big projects, the Congress party never stood by its words.
Mr. Badal said that though the then Prime Minister had promised in the August house of Parliament to hand over Chandigarh to state in 1980s but this was never materialized as Congress party backtracked on this issue.
The Chief Minister said that despite of making tall promises even the present Congress Chief Captain Amarinder Singh withdrew the facility of free power given to farmers during his regime. He said that as a leopard cannot change its spot so he could easily foresee that Congress would dump the issue of debt waiver after getting power.
Mr. Badal said that the state Congress Chief was just misleading the people on this issue and there was no guarantee of Congress fulfilling this promise as they neither had vision nor the will to do this work.
