FAZILKA: Opening of Indo-Pak border at Fazilka to boost trade and maintaining brotherhood ties with central Asian countries would be priority of NDA if it came to power at the Centre after Lok Sabha polls, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said today.
"Opening of Fazilka border would change the economic and social scenario of both nations and NDA would be firm on opening this immediately after coming to power," said Badal after laying the foundation stone of a sewerage project here.
Badal is the president of Shiromani Akali Dal, part of NDA.
Accusing Congress-led UPA government of having "ill-managed strategies", he said, "the misrule of UPA had put the country far behind economically and financially, besides inflicting unprecedented inflation upon common masses just to extend benefits to MNCs."
"Modi will be the next Prime Minister of the country and extinction of Congress is inevitable," he said, adding that Punjab would also register progress by leaps and bounds if NDA came to power.
He claimed the SAD-BJP alliance would register massive victories on all 13 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
