Punjab Elections 2017: Congress declared CM candidate for Punjab
Addressing party supporters, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi declared that Captain Amarinder Singh would be the party’s chief ministerial candidate. Launching a full-frontal attack against the Badals, Rahul blamed the ruling Akali Dal for failing to act against the drug problem ailing the state. “Guru Nanak said ‘everything is yours, nothing is mine’ and the Akali Dal says ‘everything is mine,'” said Rahul addressing an election rally on Majithia. Rahul accused the Badals of “hurting” Punjab by distributing its resources among themselves. “After Badals came to power in Punjab, they took everything — Punjab’s water, energy and resources and divided amongst themselves and left nothing for the people of Punjab,” he said.
