Defeat Congress party to teach Captain Amarinder Singh a lesson: Mann appeals to people

Barnala: Punjab unit chief of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Sangrur MP, Bhagwant Mann, who is seeking reelection from the constituency, on Thursday appealed to the people during a road show in Barnala to defeat the Badals and the Congress to teach their leaders a lesson, stating if they voted in their favour, captain would get another spell of three years to enjoy in a typical royal tradition. He appealed to them to make ‘jharoo’ (Broom) sweep the Lok Sabha elections to press the captain government to keep the promises it made in 2017.   

Mann said that people of the state had been disenchanted with the Badals for their 10-year ‘mafia’ raj and their alleged role in engineering the Bargari and Bahbal Kalan incidents, adding that they (Badals) promoted the cult of drug mafia in the state thus derailing the state from the trail of prosperity.

Citing an example of the Delhi model of governance which had grabbed eyeballs, Mann said the government led by Captain Amarinder Singh was just the opposite, which had backed out on a series of promises it made to the people in their 129-page long elections manifesto.

Taking a swipe at Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Captain Amarinder Singh, Mann said that those who used to travel by air had been forced to ride tractors, adding that they would be forced to drive bicycles, provided the people were ready to extend their support.

The AAP leader, who was accompanied by MLAs Kulwant Singh Pandori, Meet Hayer, and others, led a road show from Patti Sekhwan (Barnala) to Bhalwal (Sangrur) here today.
