Chandigarh, December 16, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Reacting to the statement made by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal, AAP MLA Amar Arora said that Sukhbir Singh Badal and his party were part of the very tukde-tukde that they are criticising today.
In a statement issued from the party headquarters on Wednesday, Sunam MLA and party leader Aman Arora said that while the farmers of Punjab, along with their brethren from other states of the country, were fighting on the Delhi borders to save their lands and livelihood amid the bitter cold, the Akali Dal was trying to reclaim its lost political ground.
Arora said that the Akali Dal, which had been calling its former alliance partner – the BJP, as a ‘tukde tukde gang’ had been an integral part of the gang, saying that Harsimrat Kaur Badal had been a minister in the government run by these gang leaders.
The Sunam MLA said that the Akali Dal (Badal), which used to glorify the said gang, was now opposing their members, adding it would not waste a minute to reunite with the BJP as and when an opportunity arises. He said both the Akali and the BJP are two sides of the same coin, who are experts in playing divisive politics in the name of religion.
The AAP leader said that SAD-BJP had been jointly behind protecting the culprits of the desecration of Guru Granth Sahib during the SAD-BJP rule, saying that both were responsible for the firing on Sikhs demanding justice in a peaceful manner.
He said that when the BJP government at the Centre had passed three contentious laws, which were aimed at grabbing the land of the farmers and handing them over to the patron corporate houses.
He said the ‘death warrants’ were also signed by Central minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, adding that instead of raising a pitch against the black laws, she maintained a stoic silence to protect her ministerial berth.
Hitting out at the Badals, Aman Arora said that when the Akali Dal (Badal) was faced with an existential crisis in Punjab, it parted ways with the BJP and started leveraging it to reclaim its lost political ground in the Punjab, acting as the martyrs.
He said that the five time Chief Minister of Punjab and SAD patron Parkash Singh Badal had not uttered a single word in favor of the farmers who were waging a battle for survival and sustenance.
