AAP to gherao Raj Kumar Verka’s residence over misleading sanitation workers

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will gherao the residence of Raj Kumar Verka, who along with Captain Amarinder Singh lied on the issue of regularising sanitation workers across Punjab; who have been fighting for their rights for a long time. Disclosing this here on Sunday, senior leader of the AAP and Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Punjab Assembly, Harpal Singh Cheema said that like all other sections, the Captain Amarinder Singh-led Congress government had been trying to mislead the safai karamcharis, who serves for the welfare of the people, by lying to them.

Cheema said that a few days back, Raj Kumar Verka had met Captain Amarinder Singh and announced to regularise the sanitation workers, which proved to be a bundle of lies. He said that Captain Amarinder Singh’s government had not yet come up with any policy to regularise these employees nor had it been considered in the Punjab cabinet. “In such a scenario, Raj Kumar Verka is only trying to drive the sanitation workers across the state insane by playing vote politics,” he added.

The AAP leader further said Verka should apologise to the sanitation workers for lying and making fun of them. He said that Captain Amarinder Singh had made big promises to different sections of the society by taking oath of Sri Gutka Sahib before the elections, but no promise has been fulfilled so far. Cheema said that in the coming days, the Aam Aadmi Party would expose all the false promises made by Captain Amarinder Singh’s government to the people of Punjab.
