Punjab Local Bodies Minister Mr Anil Joshi today said that people have now seen the real face of the Aam Aadmi Party and that is why, they would reject the party in the upcoming Vidhan Sabha elections. While attending the function organised by Dr Subhash Verma, who assumed the charge of Chairman, Improvement Trust, Ludhiana, today, Mr Joshi said that the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janta Party is committed for the overall development of the state and that is why, a large number of people have been supporting the coalition government in Punjab.While addressing the gathering on the occasion, Mr Anil Joshi asserted that the SAD-BJP coalition would form the government for the third consecutive time. He said that the Aam Aadmi Party is a party which is anti-Punjab. He said that AAP National Convenor Mr Arvind Kejriwal is working like a dictator and has an autocratic style of functioning.
