The Shiromani Akali Dal today lambasted Delhi CM and Aam Admi Party Convener Arvind Kejriwal for trying to allure Punjabis with fake promises and said that the residents of Delhi are crying, saying Delhi residents were crying for basic amenities whereas the AAP leader was promising the moon to Punjabis.In a statement released here today, the Secretary General SAD and Member Rajya Sabha S. Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said it was not surprising that Arvind Kejriwal was making tall promise to the people of Punjab in his present tour as people of the country were already aware that this man had nothing to offer except for making tall promises. He said the AAP convener was in the habit of levelling false allegations against his opponents.
Lashing out at Kejriwal for making false, baseless and intriguing promise of ending the drug menace in Punjab within two months of AAP coming to power, S. Dhindsa said the AAP government had failed to contain the drug problem in Delhi. Today the national capital has become a main source of drug supply throughout the country. He said that if Kejriwal was really concerned with the drug problem of the countrymen then he should seriously work in Delhi to break the network of drug suppliers and help people get rid of the problem.
S. Dhindsa further said that the one point agenda of the AAP leader was to ‘grab’ power by misleading Punjabis. He said before labelling Punjabis with various ‘tags’ he should first read history of Punjabis who were major contributors in the freedom struggle of the country and Punjab farmers who had fulfilled the food needs of the He advised the AAP leader that if he really wanted to serve the people he should first learn to speak the truth and then have the bravery to face the reality of his failures of the past and of Delhi government before ‘launching’ his new adventurel to ‘capture Punjab politically’. He politics is a tool to serve the people and help them to live a peaceful, prosperous and good life in society but Mr. Kejrwal was using politics as a tool for ‘self promotion’ which was shameful.
