Newly formed SAD-BSP alliance would sweep the 2022 assembly elections: Majithia

AMRITSAR: Former minister Bikram Singh Majithia today said the newly formed SAD-BSP alliance would sweep the 2022 assembly elections even as he announced that more like minded parties would come on the same platform with the SAD and BSP in the near future.

Majithia was talking to media persons after the ‘sangat’ of Majithia constituency donated seven hundred quintals of wheat to Sri Darbar Sahib.

Answering queries from newsmen, Majithia said “two big parties with a similar ideology have come together on one platform. This will result in a clean sweep in favour of the alliance in the 2022 assembly elections”.

He asserted that the SAD-BSP alliance was a meeting of minds. “Both parties opposed the three agricultural bills vociferously in parliament with Harsimrat Kaur Badal even quitting the cabinet and the SAD leaving the NDA government. In direct contrast both the Congress party and AAP preferred to conduct walk outs and symbolic protests”.

The SAD leader said the SAD- BSP combine was committed to ensure welfare of the farmers as well as Dalits and employees who were being discriminated against by the Congress regime. “We will also intensify the agitation against ministers Sadhu Singh Dharamsot and Balbir Singh Sidhu in the coming days”.

He said it was unfortunate that chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh was shielding both the corrupt ministers. “While Dharamsot has been indicted by the Additional chief secretary with embezzling Rs 65 crore meant for the SC scholarship scam, Balbir Sidhu is involved in the vaccine and Fateh kit scams”.

Majithia also asserted that the Congress government in Punjab as well as the centre was discriminating against farmers.
