Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra yesterday attempted to establish a link with local voters by saying as the wife of a Punjabi she felt at home in Punjab and among its people.
She also hailed the valour of Punjabis and their ability to remain happy in all circumstances.
Addressing a public rally, in support of Congress candidate Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, Priyanka asked people to teach a lesson to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) for harassment meted out to them.
While taking on Primed Minister Narendra Modi for brazenly lying and cheating to further his political interests, the Congress leader criticised the SAD on the issues of sacrilege and mafia rule during their regime.
Describing Punjab as the land of gurus and criticising Akalis for sacrilege, Priyanka said those who destroyed Sri Guru Granth Sahib were destroying the soul of Punjab.
Priyanka, accompanied by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, appealed to the people to strengthen the Congress with their vote in this battle ‘for the future of India’ and to teach arrogant Harsimrat Kaur Badal, SAD candidate from Bathinda, a lesson for the Akali misdeeds.
Pointing to the poor response to Modi’s Monday rally at the same ground, Priyanka hailed the people for their befitting reply to the prime minister’s saga of false promises.
