“My attempt in the coming elections will be to unite the Opposition to contest the ruling alliance. The need of the hour is that the Opposition should contest united,” he said. Manpreet was addressing mediapersons in Hoshiarpur on the sidelines of the meeting of the district party unit.

He said, “This is the state of affairs that I have been indicating for years and now it has become evident. Punjab is in deep crisis and the condition is critical due to the mismanagement by the state government,” he said.

When asked about the drug menace in the state, he alleged that some leaders from the ruling party and officers were supporting drug lords and that’s why it was not possible to uproot the menace.

He said being the state Revenue Minister, Bikram Singh Majithia has a bigger responsibility. He should resign on moral grounds and face investigation. He said Majithia should make it clear what relation he had with accused drug peddler Satpal Satta.

Asked that if he was going to join the BJP, he said, “Earlier there had been rumours that I will merge back with the SAD (Badal), then of my joining the Congress and now the BJP. If I had to go anywhere I would have gone directly”.
