Khanna (Ludhiana), November 15, 2014 (Neel Kamal Sonu): Punjab Revenue, Information and Public Relations minister Bikram Singh Majithia has said, "All is well between both Shiromani Akali Dal and Bharatiya Janta Party and no one should worry about it. We are like a democratic family. The difference of opinion if any between the members of the family is unnecessarily blown up by media."
"There are no differences between SAD and BJP as this coalition had come up on a solid foundation laid down by then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal. We are duty bound to carry forward those ties and our social cohesion is rock solid," he said while speaking to media persons here today.
He said that the so-called strained ties between SAD and BJP is all media creation and both the parties would be contesting the upcoming civic body polls in Punjab together. "We would not only contest these elections together but would win them as well. I feel more than anyone else, it’s the media as well as the Congress party which is worried about our ties the most," Majithia said who was in Khanna to attend 4th Annual Sports Meet of Delhi Public School today.
He said that it was strange that Congress party that could not keep its five top leaders together is commenting on the so-called rift between SAD and BJP. Majithia said that Partap Singh Bajwa should concentrate in resolving feuds in his own party rather than commenting on others.
Commenting on the newly constituted Youth Akali Dal, Majithia said that it has been done to strengthen the party at grass root level. "Three zonal presidents have been appointed for Malwa, while one each for Doaba and Majha regions. Each zonal president would head a zone comprising of 21-25 Vidhan Sabha constituencies and these entire president's would report to former YAD president and Irrigation Minister Sharanjit Singh Dhillon," he stated.
