PATIALA: Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal today said the result of the upcoming bypoll to the Khadoor Sahib assembly seat would prove to be the "last nail in the coffin of Congress".

The seat fell vacant after Congress MLA Ramanjit Singh Sikki resigned from the assembly in protest against the incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib. However, the Election Commission has not yet announced a date for the by-poll.

Badal said the people of Punjab would pick SAD-BJP combine government over Congress, "which is embroiled in its own internal power struggles".

The Deputy Chief Minister today reviewed the preparations for a "Sadbhavna rally" planned at Aviation Club Complex here on December 15.

Interacting with party office bearers of Patiala, Roopnagar, SAS Nagar and Fatehgarh Sahib, he said the electoral battle had begun in the state and the side striking first would be the winner.

The rally would be the biggest till date and would shake the foundations of Moti Mahal (the residence of former chief minister Amarinder Singh), he said.
