The SAD claimed on Wednesday that the AAP’s ‘pro-people policies were actually what the Akalis had already implemented in Punjab’ and the new party was aping them.

Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia said the AAP was emulating the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in many ways like focusing on social welfare schemes, announcement of khula darbar, which is the same as sangat darshan by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.

On the AAP extending rebates in electricity and water tariffs, Masaid said Punjab was far ahead of all other states in pro-people policies.

He said that schemes like atta-dal, shagun, cashless treatment of cancer patients, scholarships for SC/BC, free power for tubewells etc were running successfully in Punjab. He was inaugurating the new office of SAD (B) Amritsar Urban Wing.
