Out of power after helming Punjab as Chief Minister for 10 years since 2007, Parkash Singh Badal is in a house-hunting mode nowadays. On Sunday, he “politely” declined the new Congress government’s offer of free government accommodation in the state capital Chandigarh.
The Amarinder Singh government had offered a suitable bungalow in the City Beautiful to Badal, a five-time Chief Minister of Punjab.
Badal said: “I am thankful to Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for his gracious gesture. It is very graceful of him to make this offer. But I am making my own arrangements for stay.
The veteran Akali leader’s aides are hunting for a house for him in Sector 8 for a week now.
Other than this, he also made many statements on newly elected CM Capt. Amrinder Singh. He said his party would wholeheartedly support all the decisions of the Congress government that is in the larger interest of the people of Punjab. “The SAD does not believe in confrontation or in criticism for the sake of it,” he said.
He is expecting the new government to fulfill all their promises andwork towards the development of Punjab.
Badal  also commented , “Quite honestly, I am surprised that the new government could think nothing beyond announcing the policies and decisions already implemented by the SAD-BJP government.”
