Chandigarh, (Gurpreet)– The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was insulting Punjabis by asserting that they were not fit to govern themselves and wanted to foster outsiders on them which would never be tolerated.

Addressing a press conference here after the conclusion of the meeting of the party’s core committee, the senior leadership announced that AAP Convener Arvind Kejriwal was releasing anthems and even paid news to insult and demean Punjabis as well as project himself as the savior of Punjab. “Even party tickets are being sold with a breakaway faction of AAP giving proof of sale of 35 party tickets”. The leaders said “Punjabis are a proud community they will never stomach the imposition of outsiders like Raghav Chadha in the same manner in which they rejected the duo of Durgesh Pathak and Sanjay Singh in 2017”.

The senior leaders including Prof Prem Singh Chandumarja, Balwinder Singh Bhundur, Sikandar Singh Maluka, Maheshinder Singh Grewal and Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said earlier also Kejriwal had insulted Punjabi leaders including Suchha Singh Chhotepur, H S Phoolka and Sukhpal Khaira. “Now since the last six months he is making Bhagwant Mann beg to be anointed the chief ministerial face of the party”.

The leaders Kejriwal had also insulted Kisan organizations as well as their leader – Balbir Singh Rajewal. “AAP first started negotiations with the Kisan organizations and even indicated it was amenable to Balbir Singh Rajewal being projected as its chief ministerial face. However lately Kejriwal has insulted even Rajewal by stating that he had got two surveys done which had made it clear that Rajewal as well as the Kisan organizations would draw a blank”.

Prof Chandumajra and Mr Bhundur also pointed out how AAP and its Delhi CM had consistently taken an anti-Sikh and anti-Punjab stance. They said the application for freeing Devinderpal Singh Bhullar was not being signed by the Delhi CM despite being on his desk. They said earlier the AAP government had approached the Supreme Court to call for diversion of the waters of Punjab to Haryana and Delhi. “The AAP government has also called for closing down the thermal plants of Punjab in the apex court besides calling for registering criminal cases against farmers for stubble burning”.

The leaders also pointed out how the Delhi government had refused to install a statute of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur in the national capital. They also related the plight of the youth of the State who were mistreated in the Tihar jail when incarcerated there in connection with the Kisan Andolan protests.

Mr Maheshinder Grewal asked Kejriwal to clarify if the AAP party’s leader of opposition Harpal Cheema was unfit to be declared the chief ministerial face solely because he belonged to the scheduled caste community. He also detailed how AAP had betrayed the Kisan Andolan by promising support but refusing to extend any when asked. SAD Kisan Wing president Sikander Singh Maluka detailed how the AAP government in Delhi had not extended any help to the farming community. “Farmers in Delhi even though small in number have not been provided the facility of free power or any other subsidy”, he added.
