Chandigarh: Expressing satisfaction over his party’s performance in the recently concluded assembly elections, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president and Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Tuesday thanked the voters for their unflinching support and assured that his government will continue to work for their development.

Speaking to reporters, the SAD chief said, “I am thankful to the people of Punjab. There are various factors that contributed to our party’s victory but there are two main reasons – first our alliance with BJP was successful, and second, people had faith in our development agenda.”

“People had full faith that whatever we promised, we will deliver,” Badal said in his first reaction to reporters after it became clear that the SAD-BJP combine will retain power in the state, adding, “and we have fulfilled their wishes,”

Thanking the 1.76 crore voters in his state, Badal said, “I want to assure you all that we will serve our people even better.”

The Chief Minister further informed that tomorrow he will go the Golden Temple with his close family members to seek the blessings of the Guru.

When asked when his party will initiate steps for the formation of new government, he said, “A decision in this regard will be taken when all our MPs meet tomorrow.”

When quizzed by reporters to explain what were the factors that led to the debacle of the Congress party he said, “There can be thousands of reasons, but corruption, inflation, infighting were the important factors which changed the public mood against the Congress.”

The SAD chief also took a dig at his estranged nephew Manpreet Singh Badal, who floated PPP aiming to cut into the traditional votes of the SAD-BJP combine but himself lost from both the seats.

“I have been saying from the start that Manpreet Badal committed Himalayan blunder, which is what you call a political suicide.”

this is your last chance, unless you take very careful steps in running the state with sincerity and corrupt free, because youth are now more voters and they will remember your deeds and misdeeds for your leadership.
