MLAs of the Akali Dal on Thursday rode to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha in bullock carts. This was in protest against the high taxes on petrol and diesel.
Meanwhile, the opposition on Wednesday dubbed the Governor’s address in the Punjab assembly as a “bundle of lies” and attacked the Congress-led government over its alleged unfulfilled poll promises.
Participating in the discussion on the Governor’s address on the third day of the Budget Session of the Punjab Assembly here, legislators of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lambasted the Amarinder Singh-led regime for “not fulfilling” poll promises like debt waiver, elimination of drug menace, jobs for each household and cheaper power.
