Faridkot: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, accused Captain Amarinder Singh of protecting those behind the incidents of desecration at Bargari and 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. He said this during a road show in favour of party nominee Prof Sadhu Singh, with MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Gurdit Singh Sekhon, Sandip Dhaliwal, Sukhjinder Singh Kauni and other leaders of the party in attendance.

 

He said that reports of various commissions and SIT set up to probe the incidents pointed fingers towards the Badals, asserting that the state government led by Captain had not the temerity and will power to bring those behind the acts to justice, he said. He said that Captain 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. Kejriwal asked if any of these promises had been fulfilled. When the people replied in the negative, he appealed to them to teach them a lesson to both – Badals and Captain - in the ongoing Parliamentary polls so that they dare not coercing them (The people) into supporting and electing their party candidates to grab power, stating it was necessary to flush out these ‘liars’ from the power corridor thereby strengthening the hands of the AAP.
