Union Minister of Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Monday reviewed the programmes being run by the Food Processing Ministry’s regional office in Bathinda.
While talking to mediapersons, Harsimrat Badal said the food processing sector is expected to boost economy and more employment could be generated in this sector.
Replying to a query on suspending senior SAD leaders Ranjit Singh Brahmpura and Dr Rattan Singh Ajnala for alleged anti-party activities, Harsimrat said, “No decision in SAD is taken by the party president or patron on their own. All decisions are taken by the SAD core committee after discussion. On this issue too, the decision has been taken by following the usual procedure. Moreover, core committee members can comment on this and I am not in the committee.”
Harsimrat said in democracy, people come and go in parties, but it is the moral duty of leaders to whom the party had given big positions to work honestly and faithfully for the party. They should not indulge in anti-party activities and weaken the party, she added.
The Union Minister said SAD was 97-year-old party, which has made people work at the state and national level. Faithful leaders have also been given big honours by the party and even she has been honoured due to her public works, she added.
Speaking over the condition of the state and non-fulfillment of poll promises by the Congress government, Harsimrat claimed that not even single promise made to the public by Congress leaders during elections had been fulfilled.
“Neither students have got smartphones nor have they got employment under the Ghar-Ghar Rozgar scheme. The thermal plant of Bathinda has been closed by them. Farmers are highly affected at grain markets, which clearly indicates that there is a huge difference in what Congress leaders say and what they do,” she said.
