Punjab’s Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said that the national Vice President of the Congress party Rahul Gandhi is a ‘novice’ in public life and he is hardly any match to the NDA’s Prime Ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi
Talking to the media persons after inaugurating the Sub Divisional Administrative Complex here today, the Chief Minister said that the country’s Prime Minister should be a learned personality with varied administrative and public experience, adding that it is a fact that Gandhi was lacking both of them.
“Neither national Congress President Sonia Gandhi nor her son Rahul Gandhi have any sympathy with the common man. The country is facing the external and internal crisis just because both of these leaders are not even aware about the basic topography of the nation,” Badal said, adding that the ignorance of the top leadership of the Congress was proving to be a bane for the entire nation as the faulty policies of the UPA has accentuated the woes of the common man.
Badal said that it was not possible for such a person to manage the huge responsibility of serving the nation on the topmost post while on the other hand Modi has proved his mettle time and again as an able administrator by driving the state of Gujarat on the path of progress.
Badal said that the state government was looking into all the problems faced by the industrialists and traders, so as to find a viable solution for them.
He said that the state government was duty bound to bring every person guilty of usurping the public land to the book adding that no one would be ever spared in such act, however influential he might be.
