SHIROMANI AKALI DAL - THE LEGACY

December 14, 1920, would always be remembered as the day when the oldest and the most progressive political party was born in India. The development and transformation that Punjab has witnessed is the result of the undiluted and relentless efforts of Shiromani Akali Dal. This is one assemblage of like-minded leaders that has always put the rights of the people of Punjab on top and also fought for their rights. Since the inception of Shiromani Akali Dal, its entire history has been a magnificent testimony of patriotism, human welfare, devotion and dedication towards Punjab, Punjabis and Punjabiyat. Innumerable struggles and agitations over several years of service that led to victories and achievements stand as an evidence of what all it has accomplished for Punjab and its people. By rooting their every endeavour in the soil of secularism and democracy, they have uplifted the weaker sections of the society. SAD worked persistently towards the all around development of the state. Projects initiated by the party, which include better irrigation facilities, power plants, enhanced air connectivity, wider highways for easy and uninterrupted commute et al continue to benefit the people of Punjab. Punjab witnessed a complete revolutionization under the exceptional leadership of S. Sukhbir Singh Badal. S. Sukhbir Singh Badal, the dynamic and highly educated President of Shiromani Akali Dal, worked day and night without straining a brow to turn the dream of prosperous and progressive Punjab into a reality. Punjab as a state has been an example of a healthy infrastructure, superior governance and transparent policies under the Akali government. Its growth has been remarkable in the past decade. The road for future progress of Punjab was laid down by Akalis and Punjab will continue to prosper with Akali Dal being the age-old watchdog of Punjab, Punjabi and Punjabiyat.
