Dasuya: Describing Amarinder Singh as a "famous absentee", Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday said the Congress leader had rarely attended assembly sessions and was over-excited at his one-day attendance during the budget session.

"Maharaja Sahib has rarely attended assembly sessions and, therefore, is over-excited at his one-day presence in the House during the just-concluded budget session," the Chief Minister told reporters here.

He was trying to highlight this as his major life-time achievement, Badal said.

The Chief Minister was in Hoshiyarpur to campaign for the SAD-BJP candidate for the Dasuya assembly bypoll.

Addressing a string of election rallies in favour of combine`s nominee Sukhjit Kaur Sahi, he said the SAD-BJP was determined to fulfil all the promises made to the electorate.

"The SAD-BJP alliance has adopted a pro-people model of governance negating the anti-people policies of the previous Congress government.

"Despite financial constraints, the state government has continued with subsidies besides accelerating the process of development," he said.

Badal described the Congress as a "visionless and directionless" party.
