Uri attack: Punjab CM Badal condemns terror strike, says PM Modi will give a befitting reply

Muktsar: Condemning the attack on the army base at Uri, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Monday said that the country has a decisive Prime Minister who would give a befitting reply to those involved in the terror strike.

The Chief Minister said, any attack on unity and integrity of the country should be given an apt reply.

The NDA government at the Centre was fully committed to uphold the sovereignty of the country and protect its borders by foiling such attacks, he said at a Sangat Darshan programme in Lambi assembly segment.

Badal said such incidents must be dealt with a heavy hand to avoid any threat to the unity and integrity of the nation.

Commenting on possibilities of former Aam Aadmi Party convener Sucha Singh Chottepur forming a new front, he said in the poll season many such fronts would mushroom in the state.

These fronts would hardly have any impact on state’s polity, as the people of state were wise and would out rightly reject such fronts, he said.

People don’t rely on such leaders who have ditched their mother party for satiating their lust for power, he added.

In earlier Sangat Darshans at Haakuwala, Fatta Khera, Warring Khera, Fatuhiwala, Singhewala, Dhaani Singhewala,
Mithdi Budgir villages, Badal said the SAD-BJP alliance government in the last 10 years has supplied free power worth Rs 50,000 crore to farmers to bail them out of agrarian crisis.

The CM said, Punjab was the only state in the country to provide Atta-Dal scheme to weaker sections and free treatment for fatal diseases like Cancer and Hepatitis C.

The state government in a first of its kind scheme will provide interest free crop loans, worth Rs 50,000, to farmers, he said.

In a historic decision all farmers would be provided a health insurance cover of Rs 50,000 and an insurance of Rs 5 lakh in case of accidental death or incapacitation of head of family, he added.

Meanwhile, All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) strongly condemned the terror attack in Uri sector in
Jammu and Kashmir that left 18 jawans dead.

AISSF has welcomed the statement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not letting those behind "the despicable and cowardly attack" go unpunished, the federation's interim president Karnail Singh Peermohammad said.

The Federation extended condolences to the families of the jawans martyred in the terrorist strike, the deadliest attack on army since 2002.
