Upbeat after casting his vote, Singh attacked the Akali Dal-BJP alliance saying the state has failed to develop under the regime.

"Development is what Punjab wants. But there is nothing to see. At present, 47 lakh youths are unemployed in the state and 900 units closed down in the last five years," the Congress' chief ministerial candidate told CNN-IBN.

The Congress hopes to achieve its target of 70 seats in the 117-seat Punjab Assembly, said the former chief minister.
