Badal also hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party, terming it as a "bunch of unprincipled leaders".

The Chief Minister said that these leaders were following the footsteps of party to "deprive the state of its legitimate share in river waters".

Exhorting the people to teach this "anti-party" a lesson, he said that these forces should be routed during the 2017 assembly polls.

He said that "if unholy nexus of and AAP succeeds in their maneuvers then would turn into a desert."

Interacting with the media persons on sidelines of Sangat Darshan at village Fatta Maleka, the Chief Minister said that he had asked the Director General of Police to inquire into the incident of clash between and Akali workers in Ludhiana.

He said that law would take its own course in this matter after the inquiry report was submitted by the DGP.

Badal said that there was no reason for continuing the protest outside his official residence after the inquiry has been ordered.

A violent clash had erupted between and Akali activists on Dussehra eve in Ludhiana when workers tried to burn the effigy of 'Chitta Ravan'.

'Chitta' is a slang for drugs in Punjab.
