National Convener of Aam Aadmi Party and Chief Minister Delhi held Prime Minister Narendra Modi directly responsible for the problems being faced by common people due to demonetization. While addressing a mammoth gathering at Punjab Inquilab rally held at Samrala, Kejriwal said that the farmers, traders, and small retailers are constrained to stand in long queues outside the banks due to demonetization which has immensely damaged their business. While questioning Narendra Modi over his utterances that demonetization will give sleepless nights to the hoarders of black money, while the common man will lead a peaceful life Kejriwal said that the move of the Union Government has completely derailed the life of Aam Aadmi. Do the Prime Minister think that these farmers, retailers, daily wagers and common people standing outside banks are corrupt? He said that in order to eliminate corruption, the corrupts should be targeted. PM Modi is busy in waiving off the loans of Billionaires which includes Vijay Malaya whose loan of Rs. 1200 Crores has been waived off.
While interacting with the people, Kejriwal accused the Akali Dal and Congress of being hand in glove with eachother to loot the people of Punjab turn by turn. That is why, Captain did not take action against Badals during his tenure as Chief Minister and now Badal has also not taken any action in the corruption case of Captain from last 10 years. Kejriwal said that he has revealed the Swiss Bank accounts of Maharani Parneet Kaur, Raninder Singh (Captain's son) and their trust publicly which speaks volumes about the corruption done by Captain Amarinder Singh. How is it possible that PM Narendra Modi and Parkash Singh Badal are unaware of these accounts. He reiterated that the siwss bank account revealed by him are correct. Had it been a wrong information, Captain Amarinder Singh would have filed a defamation case against him by now. Kejriwal said that these accounts were opened in 2005 and lakhs of dollars were deposited in these accounts every month till the year 2007, all this money has been looted from Punjab. Likewise Badals have unleashed large scale corruption through sand, gravel, cable and transport mafia. Kejriwal assured that all these corrupt politicians will be taken to task after formation of the Government of Aam Aadmi in 2017.
While addressing the rally, State Convener Gurpreet Sigh Waraich said that the traditional political parties did not try to make the public aware about their rights because they knew that the aware public will question them. He said that Aam Aadmi Party is not a party of political leaders but a forum of common people who have joined politics with an aim to wipe out the wide spread corruption in the political and administrative system.While speaking on this occasion, AAP MP Bhagwant Mann said that Punjab is at the mercy of God due to the callousness of Badal government. Mann said that he has come to know that Badal, Sukhbir and Majithia have sought more security for themselves from Home Ministry. He said that if the trio has so much popularity and admiration in Punjab then what is the need for the security cover. Mann said that Badal, Sukhbir and Majithia are well aware of the treatment that they will get at the hands of public because they did nothing for the welfare of common people in last 10 years.On the occasion Incharge Punjab Affairs Sanjay Singh, Senior leader H.S. Phoolka, Co-incharge Punjab Affairs Jarnail Singh, Harjot Singh, Santoikh Singh, Lakhbir Singh Rai, Sarbans Singh Manki, Ahbaab Grewal and Gurpreet Lapran were also present.
