Why is AAP so scared of Akalis, asks Mohindra
CHANDIGARH, (Gurpreet) : Lashing out at the Aam Aadmi Party leaders for their malicious campaign against the Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Local Bodies Minister Brahm Mohindra today said that the AAP had become subservient to the Akalis and have started leveling baseless allegations against the Chief Minister. He also expressed surprise over the newfound love of the AAP for the Akalis.
“It is strange and surprising that a party whose leader Arvind Kejriwal tendered an unconditional apology in utter cowardice to Bikram Singh Majithia over a defamation suit, is trying to preach political morals to Capt Amarinder”, Mohindra said in a statement issued here today.
The Minister said, since Kejriwal had set an unprecedented record in cowardice by tendering an unconditional apology to Majithia and running away from a legal suit, the AAP leadership in Punjab was now busy trying to wash off the blot of cowardice of their leader. “But let me tell them, they have chosen a wrong course and wrong target as Capt Amarinder’s credibility and reputation is above board”, he remarked.
“Unlike Kejriwal who has a distinct record for cowardice, Capt Amarinder has a distinguished record of taking bold and courageous decisions even at the risk of losing his chair”, Mohindra reminded the AAP leaders.
He said, Capt Amarinder rejoined Indian army in1965 to fight war against Pakistan, resigned from the parliament to protest against Operation Bluestar and enacted a special law to save the waters of Punjab while risking losing the Chief Ministership in 2004. “Let the AAP leaders quote one similar single example of their leader”, he challenged them, while remarking, instead they have one single achievement of cowardice of genuflecting before Majithia.
The Minister wondered as why the AAP leadership had stopped speaking against the Akalis even on the farmers’ issue, as they were part of the decision to implement three controversial agriculture laws. “Have you arrived at some subtle understanding with the Akalis or your leader is still afraid of Majithia?” he asked the AAP leaders.
