"Punjab has fallen way behind during the SAD-BJP rule...
Congress Party is the right choice in Punjab as only it can
keep the nation united and take it forward," he said at a
public meeting here.
Munak town is part of Lehra Assembly constituency from
where former Chief Minister and Congress candidate Rajinder
Kaur Bhattal is in the fray.
Hooda said that even a small state like Haryana had
left Punjab behind in all spheres.
He claimed that Punjab was spending only 22 per cent of
money on real development and 78 per cent was being spent on
salaries and other expenses, whereas Haryana was spending 52
per cent on development.
He charged the SAD-BJP government with being self-centred,
having no concern for people or their development.
