Our strong coalition of the three parties is highly committed for the peace, safety, security, prosperity and development of Punjab and its people. The safety and prosperity of Punjab is our only goal and mission. From the very beginning my stand has been that Pakistan is trying to spread poison of hate and instability in Punjab : Captain Amrinder Singh.
The manner in which arms and ammunition, and drugs are being supplied in Punjab from across Pakistan through smuggling and by using drones, it is a matter of deep concern. And the only motive behind this is to destabilize Punjab and create unrest and lawlessness in the state. It is also aimed at fanning terrorism in Punjab : Captain Amrinder Singh.
In Punjab around 83 jawans have martyred in the last few years due to firing from across the international border . We have to change this scenario . Also , we need to make the economy of Punjab strong and robust : Captain Amrinder Singh.

Today the situation in Punjab is pathetic and highly worrying. Industries and businesses are moving out of Punjab, debt is increasing on the people of the state, and the condition of agriculture is also not good. We have formed this strong alliance so that Punjab can once again stand on its feet and we can make Punjab a strong, peaceful and prosperous state : Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa.
I am thankful to our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji for having worked so hard and launched various initiatives for the development , progress and prosperity of the Sikh community. The Narendra Modi government has brought several positive changes in the lives of the Sikh community. The Narendra Modi Government has taken several important steps for the growth and development of Punjab : Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa.
So far no one remembered the great sacrifices of the sons of Guru Gobind Singh ji . Now the decision of the Narendra Modi Government to observe the supreme sacrifices of the ‘Sahibzades’ is a welcome and appreciable step : Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa.
Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji removed names of several Sikhs from the blacklist, besides waiving off GST on langars and constructed Kartarpur Sahib corridor. All these steps of our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji are highly commendable.
