Amarinder Singh, leader of Punjab Congress had accused BSP having “a tacit understanding” with SAD in helping them for the upcoming elections next year.
“There is a tacit understanding between Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Akali Dal in Punjab, and this was the reason why Mayawati was not aligning with Congress,” he said in Ropar.
Amarinder Singh alleged that in Punjab, despite the very strong reservations, all the 117 Assembly constituencies, BSP has decided to support all the candidates, the party leaders and workers are going to help “Akalis”.

He added that on March 15, Mayawati during her rally at Nawanshahr in Punjab had denied any possibilty of forming any alliance with any political party in Assembly elections that are going to held next year.
She had then said that “the party would go all alone during the polls”.
He added just like PPP ( People’s Party of Punjab) in 2012 assembly elections, AAP will also have the same fate.
Voting for AAP, is equivalent voting for SAD as it might help them the same way that of “PPP facilitated their (Akalis’) victory in 2012 against the popular and widespread perception that Akalis were going to lose”.
He said while referring to the interactions that are ongoing with the workers of the party. In the Inter- personal communication, they are looking out for opinion on various issues that includes the drafting of the manifesto of election.
He said that he is not making any speeches but answering the the questions of the workers and it was “ two-way communication”.
Amarinder Singh said that When the state had no money, how Congress had arranged tha funds for schemes like the widow and handicapped pension and Shagun Scheme.
Just like the previous term, a special Re 1 cess on each bottle of liquor was imposed , same will be repeated again he added.
The money will be directly transferred to Social Welfare department, he said. “I have done it in the past and I will do it again.”
In Punjab when he was asked about the sale of liquor, Amarinder Singh said that in Punjab it is not possible or practicle. Banning of the liquor had led to the smuggling and manufacturing illegal liquor which is very dangerous and threatening to life.
