The Delhi CM confirms that he would not go for any alliance and would contest all the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab without any collaboration.
The statement was made on Thursday by the Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal in Bhatinda.
He accused the ruling Congress in the state for not being able to fulfil the promises.
Kejriwal said “He (Amarinder) had promised to give a job in each family. He had said if anyone is unemployed then he will be given unemployment allowance, he had talked about raising social security pension, waiving debt of farmers, promised smartphones to youths. Only tall promises were made, but none have been fulfilled. He spoke lies and now people of Punjab are fed up with them,”
He also criticized the Congress government for the careless attitude on the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission’s inquiry report on incidents of religious sacrilege in the state.
He said “Justice Ranjit Singh Commission report puts the Badals in the dock. Despite this, Capt Sahab is not taking any action against them. No FIR has been registered against them, because they are hand-in-glove.. People are finding viable alternative in the shape of the AAP,”
Aam Aadmi Party is a Political party formed by Arvind Kejriwal on 26 November 2012. It emerged as an output of differences between Arvind Kejriwal and Anna Hazare during Jan Lokpal Bill. Currently, it is the ruling party of the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
The party contested in 2013 Delhi Legislative Assembly election and emerged as second-largest party, winning 28 of the 70 seats. It formed the government in the national capital with the conditional support of the Indian National Congress. But it lasted for only 49 days as Mr Kejriwal resigned from his designation.
The other leaders who were present in the wedding function were Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Harpal Singh Cheema, party MLA Aman Arora and Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann.
