Amritsar, Oct 21 (UNI) Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today called upon the people of Punjab to follow the legacy of Lord Rama and stamp out the evil forces that were a threat to the unity and integrity of the nation.
Mr Badal greeted the people on this auspicious occasion at a Dusshera function organised by Mandir Mata Bhadar Kali Dussehra Committee here.

He said that terrorism and violence perpetrated by anti national elements was totally unacceptable in society as people wanted peace and prosperity.
