Chandigarh, September 12 : The Shiromani Akali Dal today hit back at Punjab Congress leader and Cabinet Minister Mr. Vijayinder Singla seeking apology from Union Cabinet Minister Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal and claiming that not even a single project or fund has come to  Punjab for historic event and said that before issuing such statements Mr. Singla should tour border of India-Pakistan at Gurdaspur.

        In a hard hitting reply, Mr. Manjinder Singh Sirsa National Spokesman of the Shiromani Akali Dal said that it is shocking to see that whole world knows about the projects initiated for this lifetime opportunity of 550th Gurpurab of Guru Nanak Dev ji by the Union Government but a Cabinet Minister is ignorant on what is going on his state and what his government is doing. He said that Kartarpur Sahir Corridor is biggest ever project for not only Sikhs but all peace loving humans in the world since independence of the Country and which the Congress failed to during its regime of more than 50 years.

        Mr. Sirsa said that apart from corridor Rs. 500 crore is being spent on State of Art Passenger Terminal built by the Centre Government. He also questioned is he aware that Ministers of Punjab government are regular visitors for the project and other works associated with it and are having regular meetings with the officials of Centre Government.

        The SAD leader said that as the Punjab Minister is not even aware of his state, what can one expect that he might be aware of functions being organized by the Indian government worldover. He said that before playing politics on such a pious occasion, the Congress Government and its Ministers should cross check reality of the ground.
