Hoshiarpur, Jan 30: Union Minister Ambika Soni today claimed that the people of Punjab will vote the ruling SAD-BJP coalition out of power due to its “anti-people” policies and expressed confidence about Congress' thumping victory in the Assembly elections.
Speaking after casting her vote at Bajwara near here today, Soni said people were fed up with policies of the SAD-BJP government which has “pushed the state to bankruptcy”.
On reports of former chief minister and Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly Rajinder Kaur Bhattal's aspirations of becoming the next CM, Soni said Bhattal was a loyal soldier of the Congress and would certainly abide by high command's decision.
Taking a dig at social activist Anna Hazare, Soni accused him of playing politics in the name of anti-corruption movement.
Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi had recently said that Punjab Congress President Amarinder Singh was party's chief ministerial candidate in the state.
