Delhi CM Kejriwal wooes Punjab farmers with usual tall promises
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on his first day of the four-day-visit to Punjab wooed farmers by promising subsidies like loan and interest waiver.
His visit comes at a time when AAP is grappling with a series of controversies.
He vowed to stay put in the state until the ruling Badals are “sent to jail”. However, he refuses to accept the allegations created by the rivals in a spiral of political conspiracies. He also did not explain why he has not fulfilled a similar promise of sending ‘corrupt’ Sheila Dixit to jail as soon has he became Delhi CM.
The AAP national convener said neither he nor his party is going to be “cowed down” by such “pre-planned” protests, on being heckled by activists of BJP, SAD and Congress at New Delhi and Ludhiana railway stations. He later termed all rape and corruption charges against his party leaders as conspiracies.
He continued with his conspiracies theories and claimed to know that Sukhbir Badal has hired a video company with 63 fake CD’s made to wrongfully intricate them.
“Now, I want to say that I have come (to Punjab) and I will be pitching my tent here. Till the time we don’t make them bite dust and send the Badals to jail, I will camp in Punjab and I am not going to leave this place. In between, however, I will go to Delhi for 2-3 days, but I will not leave from here till we send the Badals to jail,” he said.
