WERE PANJ PYARAS ‘OUTSIDERS’? – Chhotepur
In a new stint, sacked AAP leader and former state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur has accused new incumbent Gurpreet Ghuggi of comparing the party’s Delhi leaders to Panj Pyaras (five beloved ones of Guru).
“Ghuggi misleads the people of Punjab by arguing that the first Panj Pyaras were also ‘outsiders’, and even Guru Gobind Singh was born in Bihar,” Chhotepur said on Thursday in his address to supporters during Punjab Parivartan Yatra here.
“These great personalities (first Panj Pyaras) first made sacrifices and then came to Punjab for its well-being, contrary to the AAP leaders, who are tainted and have come to the state to loot it,’’ he said. He accused the party of blowing up global donations from Punjabis on the publicity of its government in Delhi.
