Enforcing austerity measures, the Cabinet also cleared the government's decision to ban foreign travel of all ministers and MLAs for two years. He was member of manifesto committee of Congress and promised if Congress government is formed, they will eliminate VVIP culture in the government.

Dairy Queen kicks off spring by giving away free ice cream cones
Go ahead, scream for ice cream! Dairy Queen is offering free ice cream cones on the first day of spring. The company said cones are limited to one per customer.

Commenting on the first few decisions announced by the council of ministers, Badal said except a few cosmetic gestures like red beacons, nearly 95 per cent of the announcements are either repeat of old policies or are mere empty rhetoric. There will also be no auction of land of farmers who have availed of loans but have not paid back by any bank, including cooperative ones.

The DTOs posts had already been made irrelevant with the introduction of new format of issuance of driving and registration documents. "All these decisions have funnily been included in the 120 points of the new government", he added. When he was Finance Minister in the SAD-BJP government, at that time too he was the only minister not using the government vehicle to reach office.
