Congress has taken advantage of the sacrilege attacks in Punjab, says Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal. In an exclusive interview to Rajya Sabha Television, the former Deputy Chief Minister said it was Congress that had tried to defame the Akalis despite the Special Investigation Team having given them a clean chit. Badal said Amarinder Singh government in the state has failed on all its promises and people will vote for the Akalis and BJP. Emphasising on the importance of Punjab being a border state, Badal said that Balakot airstrikes was a big election issue and the people of Punjab have great trust in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He even said that Akalis were a stable partner for BJP and they will continue to hold each other’s hands.
