Patiala, Pitching for a BJP Mukt Bharat to protect the country’s unity and future, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday expressed the confidence that UPA-3 would take over the nation’s reins to prevent its secular fabric from being destroy and to bring it back on the path of development.
Mr Amarinder was addressing the Patiala District Bar Association in the Patiala Judicial Complex, followed by a public rally in Dera Bassi, while interacting informally with mediapersons in various places.
The Bar Association extended its full support of the Congress party’s Patiala candidate Preneet Kaur, while thanking the Chief Minister for the development of the Judicial Complex with its new chambers and providing facilities to the legal fraternity.
Association president Jatinderpal Singh Ghuman alongwith VP Shivam Sharma, said Captain Amarinder and Preneet were like family, who had done a lot for the Bar as well as other people of Patiala, which had been completely ignored under the previous regime.
Addressing the Bar, and later at the public rally, he accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of tinkering with India’s secularism, which was its strength and was now under threat from the BJP.
The country today was passing through grave times and needed change in the interest of its future, and that of its people, who need development, not divisiveness, he added.
