AMRITSAT: Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today said Rahul Gandhi is the "biggest enemy" of Punjab for "branding" the state's youth as drug addicts and claimed the Congress vice president has given enough proof of being "anti-Punjab and anti-Sikh".

"If Congress scion really believes about the presence of drugs in Punjab, then he should conduct dope tests on youth Congress leaders," he said.

He said Punjab has scaled new heights of prosperity during SAD-BJP rule but Congress and leaders from opposition parties are "maligning the fair name" of Punjab by spreading white lies.

"How can a community like Punjabis, known for their bravery and feeding the entire nation, be branded as drug addict?" he asked.

Taking a jibe at the Congress, he said that "with a case registered against PPCC chief Capt Amarinder Singh's son Raninder Singh, truth is out...that the Captain's family has accounts in foreign banks besides other assets abroad."

When asked about the SYL canal tussle with Haryana, he said "There was never a need for this canal nor should it be allowed to be constructed."

He said the biggest plank of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal is development for which the party is working very hard.

Sukhbir was her to pay obeisance at Golden Temple along with his wife Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
