Faridkot, May 17: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Friday accused Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh of protecting those behind the desecration incident at Bargari and the firing incident at Behbal Kalan-Kotkapura, asserting that had they been punished in the first place, there would have been no incidents later, like the one at Malerkotla.
Reports of various Commissions and SIT set up to probe the incidents, pointed fingers towards the Badals, asserting that the state government, led by Capt Singh, had no temerity or will power, to bring those behind the acts, to justice, Mr Kejriwal alleged. Addressing people during a road show in favour of party nominee Prof Sadhu Singh, the Delhi Chief Minister said that Capt Singh had backtracked on the poll promises.
The AAP leader said that nothing had been done by the government, when it came to complete loan waiver to farmers and farm hands, 'ghar-ghar-naukri,' smart phones, enhancement in widow, old age and handicap pension to Rs 2500 and so on. Mr Kejriwal asked if any of these promises had been fulfilled.
When people replied in negative, he appealed to them to teach a lesson to both - the Badals and the Captain - in the ongoing Parliamentary polls, so that they dare not coerce them (people) into supporting and electing their party candidates to grab power, stating that it was necessary to flush out these 'liars' from the power corridor, thereby strengthening the hands of AAP.MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Gurdit Singh Sekhon, Sandip Dhaliwal, Sukhjinder Singh Kauni and other leaders of the party were present during the event.
