PM Narendra Modi promises to free Punjab from sand and drug mafia, says ‘Congress always betrayed farmers‘
“History is witness that Congress always betrayed farmers. There was long pending demand to implement recommendations of Swaminathan Commission,”
New Delhi: Ahead of the assembly polls in Punjab, which will be held on February 20, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (February 17, 2022) addressed a rally in Abohar town in Fazilka district of Punjab.
While addressing the rally, PM Modi hit out at Congress and said, “History is witness that Congress always betrayed farmers. There was long pending demand to implement recommendations of Swaminathan Commission. They sat on those files but kept lying. When we formed our Govt at the Centre, we implemented those recommendations.”
Congress always pits people of a region against others. Congress CM gave a statement y’day that received claps from a member of the family in Delhi. Who are they insulting with such statements? Not one village here where people from UP-Bihar don’t toil,” prime minister added.
PM Modi also appealed to the people of Punjab to give a chance to BJP this decade so that the double engine government can work for the welfare of the people in the state. “Double engine government in Punjab means- fastest development of the state in this decade.
Sand mafia, drug mafias will vanish from the state and industries will touch new heights, and new opportunities for employment, self-employment for the youth of Punjab,” said PM Narendra Modi in Abohar.
