The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday said a leader from Punjab will be the chief minister of the state if the party wins the 2017 Assembly polls.
“In the coming Assembly elections, AAP will win over 100 seats in the state. A leader from Punjab will be the chief minister,” said Sanjay Singh, party’s Punjab affairs in-charge, who was addressing a political conference at the Chapaar mela in Chapaar.
Singh accused Badal family in Punjab. He accused the ruling Badal family in Punjab of openly using the government machinery to register false cases against the AAP leaders and volunteers.
“The Akalis have become desperate and their attacks on AAP workers have increased, after the grand success of AAP’s Baghapurana rally,” alleged Singh.
He further said that after the AAP forms the government in the state, all false cases against its leaders and volunteers will be withdrawn and the Badals, along with Punjab ministers Bikram Majithia and Tota Singh, will be put behind the bars.
Singh accused the other political parties of pursuing ‘pariwarvad’ (family rule) in the country and claimed that the AAP, under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal, was committed to wiping out this practice from the Indian polity.
He accused the Badals for corruption and patronising the drug mafia, land mafia, transport mafia, sand and gravel mafia, cable mafia etc, saying the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance government has ruined the state.
On the same hand, even HS Phoolka accused the Badals of making false claims of being the saviour of the Sikh religion and alleged that they had done nothing for the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi and regarding the attack on Golden Temple. He also claimed that he had fought a legal battle for 25 years to get the culprits to book.
