Patiala: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday claimed there was a pro-incumbency wave in the state and ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-BJP combine will win next assembly elections with a thumping majority.

"We had prepared a road map for development in our state when we took over the reins of Punjab in 2007," he told reporters here adding that "our efforts to put the economy of the state back on track have already begun to produce results, as nearly 100 per cent increase in the growth rate of revenue collections has been recorded."

Sukhbir claimed Congress would meet the same fate in Punjab as it had met in Bihar Assembly elections.

Taking a dig at Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh, he said "his road shows will not translate into votes."

Amarinder Singh had also organized roadshows just before the 2007 assembly elections in Punjab and was "rejected" by the people of the state, Sukhbir said.
