“This also affected the development process. But after the alliance government under Parkash Singh Badal came into existence it started the process strengthening the public infrastructure,” he said. He said that previous MPs Navjot Singh Sidhu and Amarinder Singh ignored the constituency and did not bring even one notable development project for the area.

He said Modi government in the Centre has initiated various pro-farmers and pro-poor policies and rural development is its one of the primary focus. “Under the Swachh Bharat programme, building of toilets is being sponsored and poor are taking advantage of it. Houses for the poor, strengthening of roads, educational institutions and health facilities is also on cards and we should make optimum use of PM Narendra Modi’s visionary public oriented policies and programmes,” said Chhina.
