Preneet: SAD responsible for state’s financial mess

Nabha April 18:

Union Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur today blamed the SAD-led state government for the financial mess in the state.

Speaking to mediapersons here, Preneet Kaur claimed that Punjab used to be a prosperous state during the Congress regime. But now, said she, the “prosperity was limited to the leaders of SAD and associated bodies like SOI”.

In order to develop “selected” parts of the state, said she, the Akalis were allegedly selling land in the constituencies represented by Congress MLAs. When the Akalis came to power in 2007, they promised to adopt Patiala city, but the vow was forgotten soon after the government was formed, she said. Patiala’s Rajindra Hospital got the least grant from the state while the one from the Centre was “not used”, she said.

She said “wrong” policies and “lack of infrastructure” had pushed the industry to Himachal. She said the SAD had promised that Punjab would be a power-surplus state by 2013 even though “no enhancement in generation had been witnessed”.
