Innocent Admission

Modi, Amarinder didn’t fulfill even a single promise, desecration incidents will decimate Badals: Kejriwal

Khanouri/ Lehragaga/Sangrur, May 13, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

National convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday mounted a frontal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of Punjab, Capt Amarinder Singh, saying they had fulfilled not even a single poll promise made to the people during their stint in power. He accused both of cheating on the people of the state who reposed abiding faith on them.

While addressing a large number of people at Lehragaga during a Road show taken out from Khanouri to Barnala in favour of AAP Lok Sabha constituency Sangrur and sitting Member Parliament (MP) Bhagwant Mann, Kejriwal lauded the performance of Mann as an MP, stating that he had done a commendable job by flagging the core issues and concerns of all categories of people, including the distressed farmers, laborers, the elderly, ‘dalits’, the poor and traders/businessmen, and others. He said that he was instrumental in bringing back thousands of youth trapped on the foreign lands, who had to go abroad to eke out a living due to disastrous policies of the ruling dispensations, he said.

He said the best work he (Mann) could do during his tenure, perhaps for the first time in the history of Parliament, was paying a befitting tribute by the House to the brave ‘sahibzadas’ of the 10thSikh Mater Guru Gobind Singh for their unparalleled martyrdom in the annals of history.

Listing the achievements of Delhi government during its four-year-long tenure, Kejriwal said that if the intensions of those at the helms of affairs were genuine, there is nothing which could not be achieved or attained. He said if health services and education could go for a sea change in Delhi and electricity made available to the people there @ Re 1 per unit, why couldn’t it be replicated in Punjab, he asked.

Kejriwal said that Modi government had backtracked on implementing the Swaminathan recommendations for the farmers, while the Delhi government had started paying the equivalent price to farmers as per the recommendations.

He added that whereas, the farmers in Punjab and Haryana were getting Rs. 1840 per quintal, in Delhi, they were getting Rs. 2616 per quintal. He said that on wheat and paddy crop, the farmer in Delhi was getting Rs 40 thousand rupees per acre.

Kejriwal accused Captain Amarinder Singh of reneging on almost all poll promises peddled under oath, while the Badals would have to pay a heavy price for the ‘misdeeds’ of their alleged role in the desecration incidents in the state, he added.

On this occasion, Leader of Opposition (LoP) Harpal Singh Cheema, Chairman of Election Campaign Committee (Punjab) Aman Arora, Principal Budhmam, President of Lehragaga block, Jasvir Singh Kudni and State Media In charge Manjit Singh Sidhu were present.
