The story opens with a headline on a news channel with the breaking news that the CM of Punjab, Gurdial Singh, has been hospitalized with a major heart attack. Using this reason, other political parties are trying to bring down the present government of P.S.D. (Punjab Sewa Dal). For this, Baljit Singh Wadala (Prem Chopra) president of P.S.D. is holding a rally to meet the people. He assures them that soon conditions will return to normal and that their party is always ready to serve people of Punjab. Soon after this he goes to hospital to meet CM who asks him to occupy the vacant seat of Chief Minister which he refuses. Outside the hospital, journalists question another member of the party, Baldev Singh (Shivender Mahal), regarding the party's next decision. He says that whatever the decision taken by the party will be for the welfare of the people of Punjab.
