Union minister of food processing, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, has claimed that Congress and AAP are no threat to the ruling Akali-BJP combine in Punjab and Prakash Singh Badal is all set to hit hat trick by again forming the government after 2017 elections. On the Aam Aadmi Party contesting elections in Punjab, Harsimrat Badal said that it was absurd what CM Arvind Kejriwal was aiming at. She confessed that Congress was the real party which would make the elections contentious. “Our fight has always been with the Congress,” the minister said.
On the menace of imported drugs slithering through the border into Punjab, Badal said that a poorly-equipped BSF was responsible for the influx of drugs and of terrorists. She advocated the fact that new technology should be integrated at the border to ensure that security is pumped up.
When asked about the declassification of Operation Blue Star files of which she was a staunch advocate, she exclaimed how Congress, under Indira Gandhi, had deployed a sponsored massacre of Punjab in 1984. She added that the officials who were guilty of carrying out this wide massacre of people today enjoyed high governmental positions and were also being shielded.
