The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab has sharply reacted to the BJP national president J.P. Nadda’s claim that the party (BJP) would contest all the seats in Punjab, saying it would lose its security deposits on all the seats in the 2022 battle of ballot.
Reacting to the Nadda’s proposed three-day visit to Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party said that the anti-farmer and anti-people BJP should stop dreaming of gaining power in Punjab by adopting its nefarious tactics, saying that the people of Punjab had decided to teach the BJP a lesson.
Addressing reporters at the party headquarters in Chandigarh on Wednesday, Aam Aadmi Party Barnala MLA and state Youth Wing President Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer and Co-President Anmol Gagan Mann said “BJP may open 117 party offices in Punjab, they would meet their waterloo in the decisive battle as the people have made up their minds”.
Meet Hayer said that the BJP and SAD had been virtually wiped out of the state due to back-to-back betrayals on farmers by the leaders, saying the people won’t allow them to enter Punjab if they failed to fulfil the promises made to the people and finding a lasting solution to the Punjab farmers battling for their rights .
Hayer said that BJP leaders were indulging themselves in making derogatory remarks against the farmers of Punjab who were fighting for their rights. Reacting to BJP leader Tarun Chugh’s recent remark on Punjab farmers, the AAP leader said that he had insulted not only farmers but the entire Punjabis across the country, saying they would have to pay a heavy price their uncouth behaviour.
He said the BJP indulging in communal politics, be it Delhi, Bihar or any other part of the country, won’t be able to cut much ice in the state, as Punjab, the land of Gurus, saints and seers, where people of diverse faiths happily lived. Hayer said that the Modi government had betrayed not only the farmers but all sections of people who were suffering hugely, as a result of which, the country’s traders and small time shopkeepers were on the verge of extinction.
