Moga (Punjab): Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Saturday claimed that by parting ways with Akali Dal "at the behest of Congress", his nephew Manpreet has committed a "political suicide".

Speaking at a function here, Badal said the PPP, which "failed miserably" in last year's Assembly elections and the recently-concluded Moga bypoll, is going to have no future in the state.

Alleging that the formation of PPP was part of a "divide and rule conspiracy" to weaken the base of Shiromani Akali Dal, the Chief Minister said that Manpreet had "fallen prey" to the "cheap tactics" of Congress, Badal said here.

"SAD has emerged victorious and more powerful (even) after every such attempt," he added.
