Here are the highlights of his speech:

  • Punjab’s ‘Badal’ don’t give water.
  • Amrinder will be the next Punjab CM

  • Jinhone Punjab ko chot pahunchayi hai, unko hum jail mei daal ke dikhayenge; hum Punjab ki ladai ladenge
  • Main aapko yahan sirf 2-3 cheez kehna chahta hun, drugs ke khilaaf hum aisa kanoon banayenge, jisko sochoge toh kaanponge
  • Jinhone Punjab ko chot pahunchayi hai, unko hum jail mei daal ke dikhayenge; hum Punjab ki ladai ladenge (Will Jail those who betrayed Punjab)
  • We’ll bring a strong law against drugs.
  • Punjab mein kahin bhi jaana ho aapko Badals ki bus mein hi jaana padega
  • Har industry aur business mei chune hue family ki monopoly hai
  • Badals have ruined Punjab
  • We’ll ensure farmers get their dues.
  • We’ll wipe out drugs from Punjab.
  • Drug is the biggest problem in Punjab. People are leaving the state now.
  • Farmers in the state are upset, as the government is not looking at them. Badal family helped their dear and near ones, but not the common people of the state.
  • Punjab used to give strength to the country. it is a land of five rivers. The state helped the country to grow.

Congress have fielded Capt Amrinder Singh in Lambi against the current Chief Minister of the state, Prakash Singh Badal while Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal would be a strong competition from Jalalabad. However, Bhagwant Mann will be the candidate from AAP at Jalalabad. It will be a triangular contest among Congress, SAD-BJP and  AAP across the state of Punjab.

The state will vote on February 4 and the counting will take place on March 11.
