Harsimrat has no achievement to talk about during her 10-year tenure: AAP

 Budlada/ Mansa: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the Badal-Captain duo of fighting the ongoing Lok Sabha elections like A and B teams to help each other’s nominees to win.

Addressing people of the area during a massive road show taken out here on Wednesday in support of party candidate from Bathinda constituency, Prof Baljinder Kaur, Kejriwal said “Badal (Sukhbir Badal) and Captain Amarinder Singh are fighting the ongoing Lok Sabha election on a mutual pact to make each others’ wives from Bathinda and Patiala, respectively, stating they were playing safe to grab power. I appeal to you all to bid good bye to both of them”.

 

Commenting on the run-down roads, lanes and by lanes of Budhlada town and its adjoining areas, AAP leader said that his government in Delhi had done a commendable job in this regard during its 4-year stint in power, adding that  electricity was available to people at Re 1 per unit with no ‘cut’ in supply. “I did it in Delhi in just 4 years, whereas Harsimrat Badal couldn’t construct a single road during her 10-year long tenure a union minister. So, let not your precious vote go waste by casting it in her favour”

 

Kejriwal called upon the people of the area to vote, support and elect ever-accessible, educated and uprigt AAP’s best bet Prof Baljinder Kaur, who had already proved her mettle as an MLA, adding that Harsimart Kaur Badal resides in Delhi and Raja Warring lives in Muktsar Sahib and visit the area once in a while.

Terming Punjab unit chief and party candidate from Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency Bhagwant Mann as true son of the soil, Kejriwal said he had raised almost all public-centric issues in the Parliament, like none other, including paying tributes to the younger ‘sahibzadas’ by the House, which he said, would now be an yearly feature. On the other hand, Captain Amrinder Singh was offering protective cover to the Badals for their alleged role in desecrations cases, referring to the recent such case at Malerkotla. He cautioned people not to vote in their favour who couldn’t stop miscreants’ from indulging in the acts of desecration,  happening of and on.

The Delhi CM alleged that his detractors were after his life and that he had survived many a attacks on his life in the recent past, saying he was being targeted for being honest and upright and that good works being done by him, in terms of bettering the lot of education set up, high-end health services, potable water, cheap electricity and addressing the farmers’ issues by implementing the Swaminathan’s recommendations in Delhi to make agriculture a profitable avocation.

Others who were present on the occasion were Budlada MLA Principal Budhram, district president Jaspal Singh and others.
