Majitha: Ruling Shiromani
Akali Dal (B) today received a shot in the arm when nearly 200
families who had been staunch supporter of Congress left it to
join SAD in Majitha assembly constituency.

Congressmen were welcomed into the party`s fold by
former Cabinet Minister and Patron Shiromani Youth Akali Dal
Bikram Singh Majithia at a function held at Bhangali Kalan in
the assembly segment represented by him, a SAD release said.

He said Congress men joining them would not only give
a major boost to party’s electoral prospects in constituency
but would also spell doom in Congress circles who were already
striving hard to make their political presence in the
constituency.

Later Majithia told reporters "Joining of SAD (B) by
staunch Congressmen only endorses the people friendly policies
of government and the favourable political and business
atmosphere provided in the state".
