The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab, has slammed the Capt Amarinder Singh government for its ‘no-pay-no-work’ formula imposed upon the government employees.
In a statement issued from party headquarters on Monday, state core committee chairman and MLA Principal Budh Ram, deputy leader opposition, Bibi Sarabjit Kaur Manuke and political review committee chairman, Harchand Singh Bursat said, that captain Amarinder Singh, was trying to suppress the dissenting voices against dispensation’s tyranny and highhandedness instead of delivering on its poll promises, saying the anti-people stance of the government was, besides being undemocratic, untenable, saying it should immediately withdraw the anti-employee order, sooner than later.
Principal Budh Ram questioned Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh as to how many of the poll promises listed in the 129-page party manifesto were fulfilled, saying the government in the saddle should come up with its 3-year long report card on this. The AAP leader said “Does the captain Amarinder Singh government deserve to continue to rule the state with its three-year poor performance of the government?”
Bibi Sarabjit Kaur Manuke said that Capt Amarinder Singh government was not only anti-employee but also anti-farm laborers, the unemployed, traders and the businessmen, the poor and dalit, who were resorting to protest on the roads, due to the stubborn stance of the Captain Amarinder Singh government.
Harchand Singh Burst on the occasion said that, like the previous Badal government, the Capt Amarinder Singh government too was promoting private sector by pushing the public sector in the state in disarray.
The AAP leaders said that the party would stand through thick and thin with the employees and all the other oppressed categories who were protesting for their legitimate rights on the road. Being the principal opposition party, the AAP was committed to raising its voice in favour of them from the street to assembly to buy justice for them.
He said that if the party succeeded in forming the government in the 2022 assembly elections all the pending issues and concerns of the people would be addressed on a priority basis.
