last is the Modi factor People are so unhappy with the 10-year rule of the Congress that they are unanimous about giving Modi a chance Tanbir Dhaliwal: You talk of development but schools in Punjab are without infrastructure hospitals are without doctors and teachers are without jobs Badal: Development does not mean promising people that Punjab will become a Singapore or a Dubai We must compare where we were and what we have achieved in a short time using limited resources First of all power — we have been able to achieve our targets Road network — projects are at various stages In three years from now every road in Punjab will be four- to six-laned In three years 140 towns small big and medium will have complete sewerage and water supply I cannot change things overnight It is a

things simultaneously By the end of this year the whole of Punjab will be e-governed You will get most services sitting at home if you have a computer In villages we are setting kiosks where for a

already decided that Rakesh Rocky: Manpreet Badal’s People’s Party of Punjab (PPP) had secured more than 45 per cent votes in 2012 What effect will the PPP-Congress alliance have on the Lok Sabha

you see the results He is fighting from an area where everyone knows him He has always behaved like a dictator and everyone knows that Chitleen K Sethi: But why does Manpreet claim that your father likes him more than you And that you have always suffered from this good son-bad son complex running in your family Badal: My father was very fond of his brother (father of Manpreet Badal) and still is He always wanted to put his brother’s son ahead of me My father never wanted to show that he is (working) for his son Even when I was in Akali Dal he would restrict me saying what will people say… that ‘I am promoting my own son’ He is a very fair person Manpreet’s first election was from my father’s seat Usually it is the son who gets to contest from his father’s seat He was given preference over everything and everyone Vivek Sood: Do you think giving free power to farmers is a good idea especially when it is causing groundwater depletion Badal: If we do not give free power do you think farmers will stop taking out groundwater Every Punjab farmer come what may will do his best to save his crop If the crop needs irrigation the tubewell will be used but no one will spoil the crop by over-irrigating If we don’t allow tubewell connections the farmers will use diesel motor sets In order to afford diesel sets they will sell their jewellery take loans to save their crops If we have to feed the country we have to produce wheat and rice and we have to have water We are encouraging farmers to plant paddy varieties that take up less water diversify into cultivation of maize and other crops which require less water Jaskiran: What about the cancer train that takes patients from Punjab to other areas for treatment A whole generation has been affected by the indiscriminate use of pesticides Badal: In the US too the maximum deaths are due to cancer So this is not a problem that’s limited to Punjab The Malwa belt gets polluted water from factories in Jalandhar and Ludhiana I was

are in the Akali Dal Varinder Bhatia: Do you think the conviction of INLD leaders in Haryana was part of a conspiracy Badal: If you look at the chargesheet you will see how ridiculous it is What is the role of Ajay Chautala There is a meeting going on someone comes for five minutes and goes out and the CBI names him as the main conspirator Please go through the conviction rate of the CBI It is the lowest among all the agencies Their role is to confuse the issue so much that no one can get out of it for years Rakesh Rocky: How are the 2002 Gujarat riots under Modi different from the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 Badal: In Gujarat people from two communities were killed The law-and-order machinery failed In 1984 people of only one community were killed It was not a riot; it was murder What is Modi’s fault That he was the chief minister when the riots took place Courts have given him a clean chit He has come out clean despite the Congress’s onslaught of inquiries through all its possible agencies Jaskiran: Why is the government scared of Punjabi cinema making films on these issues then Is it because the wounds are too fresh Badal: The wounds (of 1984) will not heal till

Chitleen K Sethi: Between Partap Singh Bajwa and Capt Amarinder Singh whom do you fear more Badal: Neither My father taught me one thing: Never look at what your opponent is doing If you do that you will never be able to move ahead of him Set your target focus on it Let your opponents start looking at you Let them be jealous of you rather than you being bothered about them Whoever they (the Congress) make president is immaterial to me A leader should have the quality to command respect Manpreet could not keep a single person with him Bajwa has disintegrated the party so many are leaving the Congress to join us Vipin Pubby: What is the point of SAD taking in so many Congress defectors Badal: We are not taking everyone who wants to come We are picking and choosing We are spoilt for

Advocate HS Phoolka addressing the media to announce his resgination from AAP in Chandigarh on Saturday (Source: PTI Photo) Related News Prominent AAP leader in Punjab H S Phoolka on Saturday stepped down from all party posts stating that he wanted to devote ‘undivided attention’ to the ongoing 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases as they were at a ‘crucial juncture’ Even as Phoolka a senior advocate and the party maintained that he would continue to be an ‘inherent part’ of the AAP the decision came as a big blow to the party’s hopes in the forthcoming assembly polls in Punjab Phoolka announced that he had decided to quit active politics and had taken the decision after “detailed discussions” with party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Share This Article Related Article “After detailed discussions with Kejriwalji and with his approval it has been decided mutually that I quit active politics and resign from party posts…Now the cases of Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler are at a very crucial juncture These matters are on trial and the evidence of witnesses is being recorded There is a conspiracy to shield them at the highest level I feel at this critical stage these cases and this issue needs my undivided attention” Phoolka said He maintained that he would remain an ‘inherent’ part of AAP which he said is “standing on the cusp of winning the next assembly polls in Punjab” Phoolka rubbished rumours that his decision was triggered by the rift in AAP’s Punjab unit following the suspension of two party MPs “As much as an inherent part as I am of AAP my dedication to the cause of 1984 remains unaltered At this stage where I feel I am needed more for these cases I must not hesitate to take a step back from everything else and give the cause my undivided attention” Phoolka wrote on his Facebook post “It appears that the victory of AAP in the 2017 elections is inevitable It is extremely unfortunate that despite the passage of over three decades even today we are fighting for the same thing we have been fighting for since 1984… to bring the real culprits to book” he said Phoolka’s resignation comes at a crucial time when over half a dozen AAP legislators are facing legal battles in various cases including the recent domestic violence case filed against Somanth Bharti Phoolka who headed the party’s national legal cell had stopped representing AAP MLA Jitender Tomar in the alleged fake degree case after it was revealed that the RTI reply produced by Tomar to defend himself was allegedly fake According to sections of the party Phoolka was hard-pressed with these cases and had begun to disapprove of the party’s stand on some of them However AAP leaders pointed out that Phoolka is now poised to take a ‘hard stand’ during the hearings of the 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases and this might have embarrassed the party Also the party has been attacking Kapil Sibal for representing several Congress leaders and felt it was at the risk of being accused of the same with Phoolka representing AAP leaders in the dock said sources “Hence he decided to disassociate himself from active politics and the party so that his political leanings do not come in the way But he will continue to be a key figure in the party” said a senior leader Party sources said that Phoolka has been close to Kejriwal and there were no visible strains between
