Punjab Revenue and Public Relations Minister Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia today said that Congress has taken country to the brink of financial disaster and it was also a high time for President’s intervention to declare financial emergency in the country.Presiding over a function organised for the installation ceremony of newly elected Zila Parishad Chairman Yuvraj Bhupinder Singh, Mr. Majithia pointed out that the present Congress led UPA government has put the country in a hopeless situation by its wrong and anti-people policies. He said that its all policies were tailor made to suit the few inpiduals like Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her coterie rather the welfare of common masses.
He said that during Prime Minister Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee led NDA regime the growth rate of country touched 8 percent but now despite with the 'world renowned' economists at whelm of affairs, our country has plunged to just 3 percent. He said that after unleashing unprecedented inflation now it has ruined the overall economy of the country with rapid fall of rupee. He said that after analyzing the clear public mood of dumping this most in-efficient and corrupt government of the independent India, the Congress led UPA was hell bent upon to sell the country for its top brass’s vested interests.
Taking to the task to PPCC President Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa and Congress Ministers from Punjab in UPA government, Mr. Majithia dared them to show a single project, which they have got sanctioned for Punjab and accused them of playing destructive role. He asked Union I & B Minister Mr. Manish Tiwari that which industrial package he has got approved for Ludhiana and said that what Union Minister of state for Health Mrs. Santosh Chaudhary has done for Punjab except making hue and cry over Chief Minister’s picture at 108 Ambulance service.

Talking about the Food Security Bill Mr. Majithia said that Mr. Parkash Singh Badal had launched the Atta-Dal Scheme for the people of Punjab immediately after the formation of Akali-BJP government in the state and Congress leaders always criticised it at every platform.
