SAD Akali leader Nirmal Singh Kahlon, shocked the worldwide Sikh community after he called Sukhbir Singh Badal and Parkash Singh Badal “Maharaj”. The shocking statement happened during the Anti Drug event at the International border in Attari, Punjab.
Punjab government has appealed to the Centre to ban cultivation of narcotics like opium, poppy, ganja etc in other states so that drug abuse is put to an end, said the SAD President and Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal today, during his visit to the notified area committee Nathana in Bathinda.
“Country should know that Punjab is a victim of drug abuse. We are a rice and wheat producing state, unlike states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh that draw huge economic gains of Rs. 150 crore to Rs. 200 crore by cultivating narcotics. How can a country have two laws that allow cultivation of drugs in one state and foodgrain in another,” questioned Mr Badal.
