Chandigarh 16th January, 2014: BJP Chandigarh spokesman Dr Dharinder Tayal said BJP Chandigarh strongly condemns the support of AAP for the demand of transfer of Chandigarh to Punjab.
As reported in a section of the media, Aam Aadmi Party’s Yogendra Yadav in his meeting with the leaders of United Sikh Movement assured them of the AAP’s support for the transfer of Chandigarh to Punjab, thereby delivering a shock to the desires of the citizens of Chandigarh. Dr Tayal said that AAP has sold Chandigarh in return for the support of USM. The false claims of AAP of always listening to the voice of the people stand exposed as it has not even bothered to ask the residents of their sentiments on the issue and has agreed to this bargain for petty electoral gains. AAP has recently launched a membership drive in city but it has now become imperative for the newly enrolled members of the party to question their leaders on AAP’s stand on the status of Chandigarh.
It is well known that the issue of the UT status of Chandigarh is very close to the hearts of to all the residents and well wishers of Chandigarh who have always opposed any talk of its transfer to Punjab. AAP has once again ignited a sensitive issue that was dormant and being treated as almost settled by all responsible parties. BJP Chandigarh fully respects and will strongly contest any betrayal of the wishes of the residents of Chandigarh.
Instances such as these clearly reflect that the AAP bandwagon is completely derailed from its originally claimed path and in their rush to achieve quick power are willing make any compromises and trample the feelings of every ‘aam aadmi’
