Amarinder Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured him full cooperation for the development of the state.
Winning 77 of the 117 state assembly seats, the Amarinder Singh-led Congress had stormed to power in Punjab riding a strong anti-incumbency wave against the ruling SAD-BJP combine and warding off a spirited challenge by newcomer AAP.
On the vexed issue of Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal, Amarinder said it was important to see the quantum of water available with Punjab. "When Punjab does not have enough water, the question of giving it to other states does not arise," he said.
The Congress' Chief Ministerial candidate said he was committed to fulfil all the promises made by the party in its election manifesto. "The Congress-led state government will create an investor-friendly environment in the state. We will make the state's industrial policy more liberal," he asserted, adding many top industrialists were in touch with him to set up their units in Punjab.
Amarinder maintained that there was a new wave in favour of Congress in the country. Commenting on newcomer AAP's showing in the state polls, the senior Congress leader said, "AAP's bubble has burst. There was no wave of AAP in Punjab. The party's hype was only on social media," he said.
