"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.
