Punjab polls | BJP, allies announce 11-point 'Sankalp' document

Fast track courts for sacrilege incidents, free power up to 300 units, 33 per cent reservation for women in the police force, debt waiver for farmers having up to five acres of land are among many promises made by the BJP and its allies PLC and SAD (Sanyukt) for the February 20 Punjab Assembly polls. The BJP is fighting the assembly polls in alliance with former chief minister Amarinder Singh-led Punjab Lok Congress (PLC) and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt).

An 11-point 'Sankalp' (pledge or commitment) document was released here on Friday as the BJP and its alliance partners seek to form the next government in Punjab after the assembly polls. Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri, PLC chief Amarinder Singh, SAD (Sanyukt) chief Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Punjab BJP president Ashwani Kumar Sharma and general secretary Subash Sharma were present on this occasion.

Puri said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will ensure peace, safety and security of Punjab and its people besides all-round development with sabka sath, sab ka vikas if it comes to power. He said the state, unfortunately, had fared badly and needed strong and supportive leadership to revive its past and lost glory.




Arvind Kejriwal opened liquor stores, can go to any limits for profit: Smriti Irani

Arvind Kejriwal opened liquor stores, proved he can go to any limits for profit. I'd ask all brothers here, imagine a sister passing by a liquor store hoping for respect& safety, every day; Kejriwal responsible for her struggle, Union Women & Child Development Minister Smriti Irani said. "BJP is constructing a temple & Kejriwal govt is opening a liquor store near it. You'll find a liquor store in the middle of 2 gurudwaras in Tilak Nagar. Religion has a decorum that has been violated by Kejriwal govt... & then he promises a 'nasha-mukt' Punjab, she further added.
