Navjot Sidhu Bargaining face is out says Majithia. Revenue and Information and Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia today said that all Punjabis are ecstatic regarding the 50th anniversary of Punjabi Suba celebrations to be held on November 1, 2016.

Majithia today took stock of arrangements regarding these functions and also issued necessary instructions to the organisers. While speaking to media persons on the occasion, Bikram Singh Majithia said that there is nothing political about this function.
He said that despite the fact that Congress governments at centre meted step motherly treatment towards Punjab during last 50 years, Punjab still developed a lot.
