Addressing a gathering during Sangat Darshan programme of the Dera Baba Nanak assembly segment in Gurdaspur, the Chief Minister said that he had directed Deputy Commissioners of all border districts in the state to conduct a comprehensive village-level survey within a month for acquainting themselves with the needs of the people.
Based on the survey, a need-based plan would be formulated to ensure that the residents of these districts are provided ultra-modern facilities, he said.
Asking the people to vote for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Badal said that it would give a major fillip to the development of the border areas as Punjab government would get more funds from NDA government to develop these places.     

He said that once Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is elevated to the position of Prime Minister, unprecedented development would be witnessed in the entire region.
Taking pot-shots at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for being inexperienced, Badal said that he is hardly a match for Modi's decisive and able leadership.
He also hit out at Congress, saying that the party made hollow promises and never did anything for the welfare of the people.    

Badal said that the oppression against Punjabis and Sikhs during successive Congress regimes at Centre has surpassed those meted out to them during the Mughal and British Raj.    

Badal said that due to the discriminatory policies of the Congress governments, development of Punjab has been adversely affected and called on the people to throw Congress leaders out of power.
