Parkash Singh Badal, Chief Minister Punjab and Sukhbir Singh Badal President Shiromani Akali Dal and Deputy Chief Minister today reiterated that they are solidly behind National Democratic Alliance on its opposition to opening up of retail sector to FDI and said that there was no difference between two alliance partners on this. Both Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister were speaking to media after massive public rally here today.Sukhbir Singh Badal said that he had been consistently saying that all stake holders including trader, farmers, unemployed youth and opposition parties besides alliance partners of UPA should have taken into confidence by the ruling party before taking such a crucial decision that would have long term impact on economic scenario of country. The Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal expressed concern that ‘two persons’ in the centre government have no right to decide fate of the country.” He commented that “even British rulers before passing small bills used to consult public on that, to build a consensus and here ‘two persons’ sitting in centre government have tried to mortgage the interest of 120 crore people to the multinational companies”. Badal said that the fact is that all tamasha of FDI was with the sole purpose of distracting the attention of the public from the multi lac crore scams including Coalgate. He said that electorate has now become mature and cannot be befooled with such tactics. Badal said that the fact is that the anger against corruption has become a national movement and nobody can now distract attention of public from multi-billion scams. The Chief Minister said that ever increasing size of each successive scam and regular consistency of such scams suggest that Congress party was vying for slot in Guinness Book of Records as the most corrupt party of world history. The Chief Minister lamented that Congress at the helm of affairs the country was heading for dark days. He said that every section of the society was feeling helpless as they have imposed taxes on the poorest of the poor giving relief to the multinational companies and big industrial houses. He said that a lady of the house was most disturbed as her household budget has totally dwindled with ever rising prices.When asked about various Congress leaders issuing statements the SAD President quipped that whole chorus of statements was for media consumption as Congress high command has only one source of feedback that is national media and in mad race for Presidentship each Congress party leader was trying to book a slot in the media especially in those national papers which were read by Sonia Gandhi. He said that it was unfortunate that a democratic party was not in touch with its leaders and these leaders have to use media to send their message across to High Command.When asked about Rahul’s visit to Punjab, the Chief Minister said that in good old days Indira Gandhi came to campaign for Congress party in Punjab in 10 constituencies including his constituency Gidderbaha. He said that when I was asked about impact of Indira Gandhi’s visit on election scenario I told media persons that Congress would loose on all those ten seats where Indira Gandhi had campaigned. He said that results of those assembly elections proved his predictions right. He said that same would be the fate of Rahul Gandhi’s visit as Congress would surely loose those Lok Sabha seats wherever Rahul Gandhi would go.Sukhbir Badal commented “Let Congress High Command make their Headquarter in Punjab that would ensure its total decimation in the State”.
