Sangrur: The SAD-BJP combine will not win even a single seat in Punjab in upcoming Lok Sabha elections, former Chief Minister and Congress leader Captain Amarinder Singh said on Wednesday.

"Given their all-round failure, I doubt whether they will be able to save even their security deposits," he told reporters here.

There is widespread disillusionment against the SAD-BJP government and people will teach them a lesson in the coming Parliamentary elections, the Punjab Congress chief said.

If the elections are held now, the SAD-BJP will not win a single seat in Punjab and if the polls are held in 2014, they will not be able to save their security deposits, he said.

After failing to fulfill promises made to the people, they have now resorted to punitive taxation, Amarinder said.

To a question on Sanjha Morcha’s refusal to join the Congress-sponsored protest against the SAD-BJP government on September seven, Amarinder replied what they had actually said was that they had a very short time to decide on the matter.

The proposed protest was not aimed at forging any political alliance, the state Congress president clarified.

The Sanjha Morcha is a third front forged by People's Party of Punjab, CPM, CPI and Shiromani Akali Dal (Longowal) in the state.

On activities of Congress rebels, Amarinder said he had not recommended action against anyone, adding he believed in taking everybody along.
