Modi in Punjab is not happening in the near future!
In a major setback to Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cancelled his scheduled visit to Anandpur Sahib.
The PM would be hosting the President of United Republic of Tanzania the same day, the state government has been conveyed.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh has, however, confirmed his visit to attend a function to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the holy city on June 19.
The cancellation is being seen as the final nail in the coffin, as far as the SAD-BJP alliance is concerned.
BJP leaders said they had sent a survey report to the PM stating it was not safe for him to visit Punjab. Some SAD leaders feel it was the Bhullar issue that resulted in the cancellation.
Disappointment all over Punjab as PM @narendramodi cancels his participation in 350 years celebration of Sri Anandpur Sahib+
