Chandigarh : The Shiromani Akali Dal today described the statement of the AAP leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Manish Sisodia on projecting Arvind Kejriwal as Punjab Chief Minister as a big challenge as well for Punjabis as an insult for the state leadership of the Aam Admi Party.
In a statement released from the party head office here today, the SAD Secretary and Spokesman Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema said that this announcement has unmasked lust and hunger of Kejriwal. He said that by projecting Mr. Kejriwal as face of AAP in Punjab, the party leadership has accepted that none of its state leaders is worth projecting as a face of the party for the post of Chief Minister.
Dr Cheema further said that this action of Kejriwal also amounts to betrayal with the people of Delhi who gave him unprecedented support in the previous Delhi assembly elections. He said that after miserably failing to perform as per the expectations of the people of the national capital, Mr. Kejriwal has decided to run away from his responsibility.
He said that people of the Punjab will give a befitting reply to Mr. Kejriwal in the ongoing elections and today’s announcement will further lower the graph of AAP in the state which is already at its lowest ebb in the present election.
