Kharar, November 25, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Aam Aadmi Party is doing ‘politics of revenge’ with the residents of Kharar constituency in Mohali, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vineet Joshi said on Thursday. While interacting with media, Vineet Joshi questioned the senior most leaders of AAP—Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann, as to why the party is fielding ‘outsiders’ instead of local candidates, for the welfare of Kharar residents.
“Earlier in 2017, the AAP had ignored the local leaders and had given the ticket to Kanwar Sandhu, who had run away from his responsibility after winning the election.
The Kharar residents are unable to approach their MLA while their key issues remain unresolved. Not only this, Sandhu never visited his constituency to meet his people and for the residents, he is just a ‘missing person’”, Joshi said.
However, the residents of Kharar are not responsible for the underdevelopment of the area but Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann are responsible for this.
“Was it not Kejriwal’s duty to ensure that the Kharar MLA is present at every moment for the service of the people”, Joshi questioned AAP leaders.
Vineet Joshi further added said that the AAP is not pursuing ‘a policy of change’ with the people of Kharar, but in fact is doing ‘politics of revenge’, that is why after the missing MLA, now the party has chosen a singer from Mansa as the next candidate from Kharar.
“You and Anmol Gagan Mann will have to answer as to why she and her family left Mansa district and why she has been made a candidate from Kharar constituency. Also, you will have to explain about your old relationship with Anmol”, Joshi further asked Kejriwal.
The BJP leader also pointed out that the AAP does not even have a single local leader and activist from the local leadership that Kejriwal was forced to bring a singer from Mansa to Kharar, but in reality, she has nothing to do with Kharar and its residents.
“Aren’t the local leaders and activists of AAP capable enough of contesting the elections”, Joshi further asked Kejriwal after local candidates were rejected this time as well, after 2017.
