CHANDI­GARH: The Shi­ro­mani Akali Dal and BJP will ob­serve ‘Vish­vas­ghat Di­was’ on March 2 to ’ex­pose the be­trayal’ by the Congress gov­ern­ment with the peo­ple of Pun­jab.

“The two par­ties will hold con­stituency-wise protests through­out the state to fo­cus on un­for­giv­able act of chief Min­is­ter Cap­tain Amarinder Singh in break­ing the oath taken by hold­ing sa­cred gutka sahib in his hand in the run-up to the assem­bly elec­tions,” SAD pres­i­dent Sukhbir Singh Badal and BJP state unit pres­i­dent Sh­wet Ma­lik said in joint press con­fer­ence after a meet­ing of the state-level co­or­di­na­tion panel of the two par­ties at the SAD head­quar­ters here this evening.

“The Congress gov­ern­ment in Pun­jab has put the peo­ple of the state on a ven­ti­la­tor, stab­bing farm­ers, traders, em­ploy­ees, Dal­its and ev­ery other sec­tion of Pun­jabis in the back by not meet­ing the prom­ises made to them dur­ing the cam­paign,” they said, adding that the two par­ties have de­cided to put pres­sure on the state gov­ern­ment to re­lease the ar­rears for all the in­stal­ments of DA to the state gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees.

The lead­ers said the SAD-BJP will go into the election cam­paign as one al­liance unit as the bond be­tween the two was far more than po­lit­i­cal ar­range­ment.
