BJP’s star campaigner and Union Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday held public meetings in support of Akali-BJP candidates in Punjab and said that anti-social elements want to take over Punjab. She said that the coalition government had established peace in the state and nobody had the right to disrupt it. The people of Punjab will never entertain such anti-social elements.
