Sukhbir Singh Badal today reiterated that the SAD-BJP government would never deviate from the holy commitment it made to the people of Punjab regarding ensuring continuous ascendancy of state on economic, social and other parameters of development.

Castigating AAP further he said that the hobnobbing of this rabidly anti-Punjab party with the radical elements and its source of funding needs to be thoroughly probed by the central government. Attacking AAP further he said that it would also meet the same fate as that of the PPP in the coming assembly polls.Taking a strong dig at AAP, S.
