Chandigarh – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today announced the SAD- BJP alliance would give sugar and ghee at subsidised rates to all blue card holders along with the aata – daal scheme.

Addressing a huge public gathering at Jandiala in favour of party candidate Dr Dalbir Singh Verka, the SAD president said  the next coalition government would give five kilograms of sugar @ Rs 10 per kg and one kg of ghee @ Rs 25 per litre to all blue card families.

In another upcoming bonanza which was met with loud cheering, Mr Badal said welfare pensions including old age pension would be increased to Rs 2000 per month. “We will also increase the amount given under the shagun scheme from Rs 15,000 to Rs 51,000. All blue card holders would also be eligible for free gas connections”.


In another big development, the SAD president assured that all under privileged sections amongst the general category would also be eligible for all social welfare schemes of the State government.

Mr Badal also announced that the medical facility available to blue card holders, small farmers, petty traders and construction workers would be increased from the present Rs 50,000 to Rs one lakh.

The SAD president said anyone who doubted that any of these promises would  not be implemented only had to look at the past track record of the alliance government. “We said we will give you free power. We did. We have also successfully implemented the aataa daal scheme. In direct contrast Capt Amarinder withdrew the free power facility as chief minister. He

also withdrew the shagun scheme. How can you ever trust such a person”, he added.

Revenue minister Bikram Singh Majitha while speaking on the occasion, said the Congress party would face a humiliating defeat in the Majha region as the people had understood its real nature. “People have decided to vote for development and a better future for themselves and their future generations”, he added.
