Fatehgarh Sahib (Pb): Punjab unit of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) today said the party will contest on all 117 seats in 2017 Assembly polls on its own.
“We have started a door-to-door campaign and visit every village and house under a campaign to bring BSP to power and save Punjab,” BSP Punjab unit chief Avtar Singh Karimpuri said.
“Our fight is for the welfare of Punjabis and for this, we will give space to like-minded people from other communities too,” Karimpuri said.
On the ‘Udta Punjab’ row, he said Akalis should not oppose the film and focus on generating employment and curb drug menace in the state.
On Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s visit of Punjab, Karimpuri said it would not serve any purpose.
“If Rahul is seriously concerned over drug menace, he should show door to those Congressmen who are involved in drug supply,” he said.
Criticising the Congress and SAD, Karimpuri said both parties were responsible for putting the state on the boil.
Now, they were playing politics over petty issues to get votes, he added.
