Chandigarh, March 15: Shiromani Akali Dal today strongly castigated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for misleading people and dared him to spell out welfare measures of his government as compared to SAD-BJP government initiatives.
In a statement here today, Shiromani Akali Dal senior leader and MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said Kejriwal is resorting to blatant lies with his sole aim being to garner votes and playing dirty politics with sentiments of weaker sections.
Questioning Delhi CM, senior SAD leader said why so suddenly has Kejriwal developed profound love for dalits whereas the weaker sections were facing hardships in the Jhuggis and hutments in the capital. He said that various pro-poor welfare programs regarding free medical treatment to blue card holders, Insurance cover, 200 units of free power, Atta-Dal scheme for BPL card holders besides 5 marla plots for free housing implemented by Punjab Government hold mirror of truth to AAP supremo who claims to be so called messiah of poor people’s rights.
Reacting to misleading promises made by AAP leader today at village Pirthipur in Rupnagar, he said Kejriwal is promising moon to people of Punjab especially dalits by pledging to form a SIT for probing alleged atrocities in event AAP comes to power. Dhindsa said Kejriwal was making false promises to them just to garner their votes keeping in mind assembly elections next year.
Further lambasting on AAP supremo, Dhindsa said Kejriwal would do very well to first carefully check facts before making promise of providing every facility to promote education because Punjab is already one of the top 3 states in the country in terms of educational infrastructure. He dared AAP convener to count a single development in educational sphere in Delhi.
Dhindsa emphasized that Shivlal Doda case is being dealt with strictly in accordance with provisions of law and a SIT is already probing murder of Bhim Sen Tank at Abohar. Hence the promise of constituting another SIT by Kejriwal amounts to playing dirty politics.
He expressed confidence that sensible people of Punjab won’t fall into Kejriwal’s trap and not allow him to vitiate state’s peaceful atmosphere. He said Kejriwal is exhibiting love for Punjab with only electoral agenda in mind and his novice outfit could not provide any development as the formation is totally inexperienced.
