He said that till Chandigarh was not given to the state around four decades old practice of appointing Punjab Governor as the Administrator of Chandigarh should be continued. In this case drugs in Punjab and defaming of the state is also done badly.
He insisted that Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) head Arvind Kejriwal was a “chronic nonperformer” who had “utterly failed” to fulfill even a single promise in Delhi.
He emphasized on the fact that Kejriwal has ‘anti-Punjab’ syndrome and same is reflected in his contrary stand on the Sutlej-Yamuna Link which totally showcase his interests opposite to of the state.
“Nothing good can be expected from the state from Kejriwal who has no sympathy with Punjab or its people,” he added.
