Amritsar: Flaring up the political heat in poll-bound Punjab, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley has slammed the Congress party by saying that the party brought only terrorism to Punjab.

"Congress brought terrorism to Punjab, the Akali-BJP government has brought development back to Punjab, the Akali-BJP government has brought back to Punjab social harmony, which the Congress had spoiled," Jaitley told media here on Saturday.

Punjab is one of five states due to hold elections this year. As per the schedule planned by Election Commission, the state Assembly poll in Punjab would be held on January 30.

In Punjab, the main battle is expected to be between the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-Bharatiya Janata Party alliance and the Congress party. Sukhbir Singh Badal, the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab and son of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, heads the SAD.

Meanwhile firing a salvo against Congress party in Dehradun, senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said that Congress is gripped with allegations of corruption and hence facing difficulties in elections.

"Congress is facing lot of difficulties everywhere and the reason why it is happening is because the government has broken all records of corruption and now they are helping the tainted ministers also," said Joshi.

Jaitly Ji, Punjab has lost its people and its economy in that dark phase of history. You are right in your contention. But now is the time people of Punjab should learn to discard those who do not care for them and are sincere to serve them. Of the choices available, only Akali Dal BJP is more close to the people.

Congress is the culprit for bringing terrorism to India by supporting Bhindranwale in Punjab.

There is no point in one corrupt party slinging mud on an another corrupt party and vice versa....... People are fed up hearing same filth being churned out in every election..... High time the politicians start talking about constructive ideas, plans..... etc
