A violent clash took place between BJP and Akali members in Batala that resulted in one of the BJP members being hospitalized. The police is investigating the clash but both parties members are blaming each other for the clash.
The BJP member stated about 50 Akali members came and attacked the BJP candidates but Akalis have stated the exact opposite.
The relationship which CM Badal had described as a rice pudding seems to be ending as clashes are occurring between the two parties in various places in Punjab.
Akali Member stated Suresh Bhatia with the members of his party came and started to throw stone at them and escalated the clash.
The clashes are becoming an everyday story and the alliance between the two seems to be in jeopardy.
