Bhatinda: In a bid to consolidate vote bank in poll- bound Punjab, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Monday announced to construct rest houses for all the labourers in the state. Badal also said that the government is ready to fulfill all their justified demands.

While addressing media, Punjab CM said, “For the consideration on demands by labourers, the Punjab government will hold a meeting on December 18 and most probably we will try to approve their reasonable demands.”

Badal announced to construct rest houses for all the labourers in the state so that tired lots can relax themselves.

Slamming former Punjab CM and Punjab Congress President Captain Amrinder Singh for vitiating the minds of people by distributing money in Sangat Darshan, Badal said, “If the Congress Chief Minister had granted funds for the development, they would not have done so.”

“The money distributed in Sangat Darshan by Akali and the BJP belongs to Grant Rural Development Fund (RDF). So there is no point of feeding wrong information to people of the state.
