"The Congress... is on its last breath", Modi said at a joint election rally with Punjab Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal patron Parkash Singh Badal here.

He said that the AAP was caught between the extreme left (Naxalite) and right (Khalistani) philosophies, and the parties had absolutely no policies or programmes for the development of Punjab. "Pakistan always looks for opportunities to destabilise Punjab.If a weak government comes, or government of outsiders comes or those indulging in luxuries come into power, this will be bad for Punjab and the country", he said. He said the money was illegally grabbed by Captain and his family members during the Congress's 2002-2007 regime in Punjab when Amarinder headed a "corrupt" government. "We need to ensure that there's a strong government and hence I request Punjabis to vote sensibly and not fall for false promises", he said. He also said that he feels such people should not get votes as they only come out only to loot and not to work.

"(Are) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Congress fighting together against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)", Kejriwal asked. Targeting Congress, the PM accused it of branding Sikh youths as terrorists during and after the era of militancy.

"I am pained to hear what all sorts of things are being said for Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal", Modi said.

Gambia's new President Barrow says state coffers appear empty
Some people have effectively disappeared, but families cling to hope that they may still be alive, say human rights activists. Thousands of Gambians had fled in recent weeks for fear Jammeh's refusal to step down would lead to bloodshed.

In an obvious reference to the Congress and the AAP, Modi lamented the declining standard of language being used during campaigning in Punjab. We have also fought against the Congress.

Kotkapura (Faridkot): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched an offensive against AAP, calling it an "outsider" that is "dreaming of creating its own world" at the cost of Punjab and asked voters to send the party back from where it had come.

"There could be dispute between political parties and if the principle of democracy is broken, then country will face harm", he said.
